Being around longer is completely irrelevant. I only have time to post here because I slept in after night shift today. I will never reach 1000 posts probably. I am normally out shooting, but life got in the way today. I can assure you, I am not confused in the least. The fact that some folks simply can't withold an opinion when I specifically stated i wasn't looking for one at the outset isn't ME being confused. I guess the OP doesn't get to set any parameters here. Sarcasm of "thanking " folks for their UNSOLICITED opinions seemed pretty obvious. After all, you ARE being sarcastic with your little Nosler idea AREN'T you?
"i am going to print your post out and take it down to my local walmart tha i dont frequent and see if they will start stocking Nosler custom ammo. "
Incidentally, i did not take a piece of paper to the local walmart and ask for custom ammunition and i even mentioned in this thread the price expectations for people wanting that type of ammo. Again, read the thread.
You may find emailing the way i ACTUALLY DID will work like it did for me, instead of sarcastically creating a scenario you and i both suspect will NOT work. Being around a long time on a forum is a poor indicator of experience, btw. The smoke cloud of those who have the most posts eventually clears when they post googled advice from a bad source. This is happening today on this forum and others around the world as local forum "experts' suddenly give out some patently bad advice and somebody newer around the forum points it out for what it is.
This is a very disappointing flow of bad information out of good from you guys. What was wrong with my initial thread, just because some of you have pre-conceived notions about the ammo i used as an example? If i had said winchester or federal or remington, you would have kept it to yourselves.
FWIW, the CURRENT pricing of surplus ammo is NOT "just a little more" as a percentage of what we pay and much of the ammo that is still twice as expensive has berdan primers, just like the .308 steel ammo i'm getting. Both not reloadable, so now we're forced to recycle brass to recoup cost...steel is recyclable too, guys. WalMarts are everywhere...those of you who don't go there, who cares?
I am trying to get some reality into the world of shooting for the budget-minded now, since the thread has wandered well off into the world of personal opinion and even outright name-calling. I have stated nothing that isn't substantiated and repeatable by any shooter on a budget or otherwise.
No, there is no point in arguing with you guys who think being here longer makes a difference. Believe it or not, you can't believe everything you read on the internet. I tried to pass GOOD information in a timely manner. I passed good points and possible bad ones on the ammo. My thread covered the whole range of all the crap you guys are pitching at me. The whole "countries that hate us" idea is pretty dated and not entirely accurate either. FWIW,this info thread is also posted on other forums and is getting the opposite of the nonsense i'm reading here. I thought this was a better place than that.
Jp, i apologize for attacking you. Read your recent responses to my posts and tell me if i have misinterpreted them. I am still waiting for your pictures of that shooting you promised. I can assure you you would get a big thumbs up and great shooting from me if you post them. That thread was about modern rifles and accuracy. Again, i contributed a timely picture that showed a single shot typical of THE RIFLE....the topic of the thread.
As a group, i guess the majority here is remaining silent, but those who have chosen to make this a negative thread are winning on volume. Quantity is a quality.
It would be nice to hear from some folks who found the information useful, like i already have on other forums.
I don't come to internet forums to argue, so if it seems like I'm ignoring your response, I am.
