Congratulations. You're the first member on the forum to make my "ignore" list.

Evidently that is easier than calculating effective range... and this should save you a lot of embarrassment in the future. Go you!

How about you find somewhere else for your pissing match?

Kid, Ive seen you post these videos and harangue others several times. We get it, these videos are allegedly you(doesn't matter if it is or isn't) at ranges approximately 400 yards with a 30-30.

Lets guess that's about 60" of drop at 400 yards. Impressive to many.

Lets compare that to 35 FEET of drop at 1000+ yards with a 308. That's impressive.

I have used both the 30-30 and .44 magnum marlins. I liked both but for hunting I would choose the 30-30 and for just plain old fun target practice I would go with the .44 magnum.

It isn't my problem if you can't keep-up.
He said, "And your posts scream of lack of experience" whereas I submitted my experience on the subject at hand... and it isn't my problem if he is upset that he lost the argument.

That I understand the issue and am able refute all points put to me, is not a negative.

You call me a liar, after chastising me for correctly refuting incorrect statements directed at me.

That looks an awful lot like a "pissing match." The first one of the thread, I might add.

Actually, the drop isn't what makes it impressive; the 35mph wind does. I'll be impressed when you hit a 2moa sized target with iron sights at 1000 yards in 35mph wind with your 308, on the first shot.

You guys just can't get around the name calling; but you find fault with my correct statements. The irony!

I posted 100% fact. You redirected. You need to get over it.
