Non-magnum lovers
 
'Cause non-magnum hunters started out with non-magnum rifle and could shoot straight.

The Nosler Partition has been around for over 60 years. There never was a need for magnums.

In actuality the only thing that magnums do is allow a person to stretch the distance to take a particular animal. Sometimes they may be necessary for another reason, such as using one for dangerous game and/or it's legally required, but for the most part when the distance can be closed the need for a magnum is completely negated.

I am quite familiar w/the reputation the partition had and the fact that it still remains an exceptional choice. As part of my previous statement, one must consider how current bonded core bullets and monolithic bullets have become so prevalent from the major manufacturers. Powder and premium bullet choices have increased dramatically since the design of the partition and traditional heavy for caliber cup and core bullets.

If a hunter needs to get closer than 30-06 range. They need to work on their hunting skills.

Wanting to shoot longer, and needed to, are two different things.

I won't argue with you on that Pete.

The last animal that I shot with my .300 Weatherby was all of 50 yards away.:)

I approve of the range. :party0005:

Non magnums are awesome!! However i like magnums better, my .300 RUM gets every game i hunt right through the heart/lung area, 20 yards through 570?. They're a very accurate round, it's all good, mag's are kinda, sorta, better.....
