Talking to a LGS owner a few years ago he told me the American hunter is the most over gunned hunter in the world. We have people walking around Florida with 7mm Mags, 300 Win Mags and the like. On top of that they will pick one box of ammo over another because the maker says it has 40 FPS more speed.
