I agree!! The Firearm & Ammo Industries have way too many of these "New Age" loads that are more expensive & no more effectiveness then the older well established loads.How many calibers are a "must have" vs " i want". Im of the oppinion the gun industry has gone way overboard with too many redundant calibers. What say you?
True, I think many people buy these newer cartridge because they think the cartridge looks "Cool" or has some extra knock-down power. Almost all the old stand-by's have the same ballistics and are capable of taking game just as well or better than the "New Age" cartridges.The ONLY reason the firearm industry makes so many different calibers and style guns, people buy them. It all boils down to economics 101, supply and demand. They also have to come up with ways to keep the shooters interest in buying new stuff. Gotta make them think what's out today is way better than was available last year.
