    not be a moderator, but i'm just guessing that big game rifles are put away. the small caliber group (targets, varmints, etc...) is a subset that handloads. i'll start seeing it pick up this fall.

    what it comes down too, is whether you trust the true gunsmith (not a shade tree gunsmith either, hey wait a minute, i am a shade tree gunsmith:redneck:) or do you trust google? i'll trust the true gunsmith. i don't trust Wikipedia or google.
