SNIPERS HIDE BC TEST

LINK TO THE TEST

The Snipers Hide Forum reported on a BC test that it conducted.  GSC was contacted shortly before the test and, for a number of reasons declined to participate. Snipers Hide proceeded to include an older version of the GSC .338" calibre 232gr SP bullet in the test.  This is not a problem, except that the data from the newer version of this bullet, given on the GSC website, was given by Snipers Hide for the older bullet that they used. The correct numbers for the bullet used in the Snipers Hide test, is given in the summary of the test results in the table below.

 Despite being informed of this error shortly after they published the results on 19 December 2011 , Snipers Hide has failed to correct the data.

Here is the full email exchange between Frank Galli (Lowlight) of Snipers Hide and Gerard Schultz of GSC

Errors Mr. Galli has made.  He does not like being corrected on technical matters and bans those who do so.

Mr. Galli continues his vendetta against GSC with incorrect/ignorant statements
