CoastDog I basically agree with every thing you said....

Especially the "Things (need to) change" statement....... Please excuse my liberties with the statement.

I'll just sit here feeling proud and satisfied and watch HP go away for the very reasons you state.... Recoil, difficulty, character of the game and keeping things the way they are.

Highpower silhouette is like bull riding.
If the rules are followed precisely, wimpy people will not be doing it or at least not doing it with the success they want.

Long time ago our club had a non member regularly shooting a 6 BR in monthly matches. He would ring some rams. I did not that was a problem, at his level more hits all 4 critters better than loosing the occasional ram & no doubt light recoil means more hits.

Problem was he was real nasty to our target setters over his ram knockdowns, blamed it on them. Setters were tipped & he never tipped. After a match put the range junker pick up away and found 3 C clamps in the bed.

With no direct experience and based on 243 barrel life stories I would pick the 6 BR. Could be wrong, worth investigating before you commit.
