It's talking about 100% accuracy at 800 or more yards. So I'm wondering, if OwnedINC thinks that the average joe can make 800 yard shots with 30 minutes of instruction. I mean, 800 yards is just under three times the distance of 300, so it must take approximately three times the amount of instruction and practice right? rolleyes.gif

Well seeing as the subject at hand was hunting...

No one hunts from 800m.
My point still stands, hunting doesn't take much know how.

Hunting is not about just shooting an animal, there is so much extra work that goes into making that one clean shot.

I could probably write all night in this post describing hunting, however I won't waste my time, nor anyone else trying to explain everything that goes into a 'simple' deer hunt.

Yes many people do hunt @ 800 yards, often when I'm hunting in eastern Oregon in the high deserts i glass an area beyond 800 yards an often times spot many different animals, if I see the animal I'm hunting for, and decide I want to attempt to get it I will make my stalk.

I hate to assume but correct me if I'm wrong if you meant shooting an animal @ 800 yards? I personally wouldn't do that, but I'm sure there are people out there that do that sort of thing, whether or not there good @ it, is a mystery to me.

What I do understand (back on topic) is this $17,000 rifle CAN shoot @ that distance; that's great! my money is in a actual hunting situation if a hunter were using this and did see something beyond an optimal range, that hunter probably isn't going to take that shot. the hunters I know would never think of taking a shot beyond there capabilities, the same rule of thumb applies to new technology in this case, hypothetically speaking of course.

I did agree with another poster, that a disabled hunter could seriously benefit from this, I don't know too many disabled people who have 17k to spend, nor that hunt too much, but I'm sure the ones that do, and enjoy the sport, this could truly benefit from this.

Its probably been said in the last 10 pages but......



CAN IT RUN CRYSIS





I dont really see the point in this for hunting..... I guess its cool though.


TBH I'd like to see a computer robot saber tooth tiger than can chase and pounce and tear a deer to shreds, then use the deer meat to fuel itself. Oh the tears of animal lovers and vegetarians alike would make it a worth while investment.

Uh, yeah they do. It ain't a lot of them, but they do, and there's more of them every year. Do a google for ".338 Edge" which is a ballistic equivilant-ish of a .338 Lapua(it's actually capable of higher velocity with the same bullets, and the brass is half the cost). There's a video on youtube of a black bear killed with one at almost a mile or so. I have a friend out in cali that has a small circle of friends that they call the "1000 Yard Pig Club" because they go boar hunting looking to kill one at that distance(most of them have in fact managed that feat). And most of the group members use a .338 Lapua because the round hits hard enough at thousand yards to insure a humane kill on the animal. Same story for elk hunters and North American antelope hunters. And big horn sheep hunters. Overkill is underrated.

As for not taking "much know-how" it depends entirely on what you're hunting. I once had a Scout instructor tell me that the best way to work on your stalk technique was to go hunting North American antelop and see how close you can get before they bolt. The whitetail in my area will let you get within fifty yards before they bolt, and they will stand there waiting to see what you're going to do. I'm told the antelop simply run as soon as they see you when you're still several hundred yards away. Ask a turkey hunter just how "easy" it is.

Also, while I understand the appeal of this device, I also long ago came to a conclusion - if you become dependent on something that requires batteries, you will be useless when the batteries run out. Why I don't like aimpoints, etc. And these days a thousand yard shot is really not pushing it at all.

Here, I'll let the pros prove it:

I don't think this is useful for hunting, not that I'm opposed to the technology in any way.

100,000 years ago, no one hunted from further away than the reach of their spear point. The bow soon changed that.

The only reason people don't often (note that I did not say never) hunt from 800m is because the tools aren't there yet.

Build it, and they will come.

You're assuming the ATF would allow civilian purchase of a firearm with an electronic trigger. IIRC they do not.

I think if i were to ever see a person hunting deer with this rifle a Capt Picard face palm would be in order. smile.gif
This could be a fantastic boon to those with CNS diseases, and as for long range hunting, some of us are apparently not as good as you. maybe we should stop using optics and go back to filing at notch in the barrel for use as a sight while we're hating on tech.

Unless they want to add EMP Shielding but even that has limits.

if an EMP takes out your firearm, you probably have more to worry about, like how to survive the next three days without succumbing to either instant vaporization or radiation sickness.

yea I don't think trusting a gun to a computer is a good idea.... I love linux in all but yea... no.

What if it kills another hunter, can you plead that you had nothing to do with it?

Better hope the event was recorder in /var/log/killedahuman.log

LOL

What were you doing pointing the rifle at another hunter in the first place? it doesn't pull the trigger at will, the operator does, the firearm simply chooses optimal timing to hit whatever you're aiming at.
"It" didn't kill anyone, you did (hypothetically). Sounds like 1st degree murder to me.



fully automatic sniper rifle? what is this? In what video game is there a legit sniper rifle that's full auto? oh, wait. Borderlands 2. 'Cause that's realistic.


And last of all, shame on all of you hating on an advancement in technology that makes us humans better at something we already do. Isn't that the whole point of all technology?
