This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.
[Thomas Hart] Benton in 1828 ascribed the cause to the tariff. Expenditure, he said, “flows northwardly in one uniform, uninterrupted and perennial stream.

We also need to be more realistic about what type of shooting and at what distance we are likely to use our rifle for. So before we touch on those points, let’s look at trajectories for the various zeros a little closer.
First, we need to understand what is happening when we zero a rifle. Bullet trajectory follows the following path when it leaves the rifle:
