Good point. And to answer, I'm definitely not most people!
I feel like at 60 years old, I'm still relatively new (about 7 years).. and I've got a lot of catching up to do. I want to learn as much as I can.
I learned as a result of this thread that there's a lot more knowledge and experience I need to acquire if I want to hit a target out that far. Why do I want to? Because I want to.
But I do appreciate the input. It may not always seem like it. But really, thanks to all.
As allaroundhunter suggested, I looked at the 260 rem. That really IS a good suggestion. I will put that on my "planning list".
