    Excellent Linyera.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    There is a lot of vegetation in places where we hunt and soft point bullets often deviate from striking the branches. Even I have understood that caliber 223 was created to develop their full potential with FMJ bullets

    those V-Max bullets seem like great works of art in .223
