Just picked up a sweet .300 Weatherby Magnum set up with a custom synthetic stock (pistol grip) and variable optics. I have not shot it yet, as they did not have any ammo in stock, but the Weatherby guarantee is to post 1" groups out of the box ...... The effective distance for this is even round better than the M1A1
The Weatherby 300 Magnum is the first rifle I had. Kicked like a mule(too much for a 14 year old), but was very accurate. I had to trade it in for a Remington 30.06 auto, which I had targeted in to a dime at 100 yards. I got three deer with that one. My Dad kept his Weatherby 300 Mag, and was good enough to not ruin the meat like a couple of his friends who bought one did. It was a better moose gun, but needed graphite in extreme cold.
On the lowest ice extent this mid-September, the lowest since measurements began in 1972, and lower than 2010 or 2007, snowjob is using August measurements to say it does not have the record lowest ice extent and depth for at least 8,000 years. If there wasn't any AGW from all the huge amount of HGHGs, then the ice extent would be on the increase and temperatures going down toward the final two thousand years of the interglacial epoch. The records would me all for low temperatures.
It is people like snowjob who have just about guaranteed people's ignorance and business as usual as long as possible, meaning the ELE 200 to 400 years after the human population crash.
