Reduced loads ? WHY ????
« on: August 24, 2014, 05:30:51 PM »
 :DYes YES, I know why, just seams every where I look some one is looking for a reduced loads. I'm always looking to AMP mine UP!:confused:
 I wander if we have reached some kind of apex. Every thing was going to extra supper Magnum and bigger.
 If you get a 338 why do you want a reduced load. Getta 30/30. A 3 1/2" supper mag shot gun? A reduced load, What? How bout a 28 gauge instead . Maybe we have reached our limits with even a limb saver won't save you any more. Me now I'd just assume shoot a 600 nitro for gophers and get some thing bigger for "Big game" Or an 8 bore for doves and a punt gun for geese. Bring it on I love it...:thumbs:
:crazy2

  O0 Good point, D! Why buy a certain caliber and then water it down? It is obvious other people are not as tough as GutPilers, that's what!

I no longer big game hunt and admit to being obsessed with squirrel hunting. I have moved up to the apex of rimfire firepower, the .17WSM. If I wanted to cut back, I would use my HMR rather than  shoot a waterdowned centerfire round.

I sometimes get a little recoil sensitive with some guns. Shotguns I can see the advantage of bigger bore, longer shells. That equals more pellets in the pattern. Now with rifles I think you have a valid point. A light load this is usually the equivalent of the factory load something else. Now if you bought the gun thinking you could handle it but couldn't, reduced loads are a better option than taking a loss on the rifle. Besides, maybe you will be able to work up to the factory load.

What about situations where a persons choice of firearms is limited and what they are hunting doesn't require that much umphh. If you only have a 30/06 do you really need the largest bullet and the most powder in that casing. Where i am the longest shot is 100 and under. A smaller bullet and charge can make you more accurate.
I don't have bad english you just don't listen.

What did you learn?
