Does the result show brain hit or body hit at the bottom right of the screen? ;)


I would like to know this as well. I think it looked weak.

There's some strange things with it regarding the "capacity cost" in the store. It's loaded with a 135 grain bullet, right between the .270 (130 grain) and the 6.5x55 (140 grain) yet it is permitted for more species than the others.
HOWEVER.
The 7x64 ammo has an capacity cost of 0.65. This is the same as the big boys .405, 9.3x62 and 9.3x74R. That can't be right?
For instance the .30R is at 0.55 and the .300 at 0.6.

I mainly want this tested because if it can't hit the brain on the Moose decoys 80m out then it's the same as the .308 imo.
Permitted list is the exact same as the .308
I have over 1337 kills with my Longbow at 100% kill rate.

I don't really have have a problem with holding back the weapons, cause they did it with every retail box release since 2012 and im ok with giving the winners of the holiday competition something special for like half a year. its not like there are no other rifles to shoot with. For me the main problem with PB not attracting many hunters (if it is so) is the lack of love they give to new reserve releases:

1. The bugs of course. i have not the slightest intention to play there with knowing that the scoring is a mess. Id hate to shoot a big animal with a wrong low score or a score thats much too high and i never have the chance to top it again after its fixed.

2. There are no competitions or missions for the PB animals. Makes it feel totally incomplete for me and i just started to hunt Timbergold like 18 months after the release cause the missions and competitions finally give me a reason to hunt there.

3. I know i should be over it by now after 6 reserves without them, but i still miss the the hunting towers in new reserves. And yes i can use the deployable ones but its not the same. Maybe EW could use a concept like in call of the wild where u pay 500em$ or something to unlock towers in areas where it makes sense and to get the feeling of the older reserves back.

New rifle trialled on Bushrangers and I'm afraid it is weak against feral hogs. Haven't had a lung hit at any pig over 50m. Not great so far.

without the scope it show a body hit...while with the .300 w/scope it show a skull/ brain hit..

so, no other scope will attach to the new rifle :evil: ....i want my money back :cry: ....this is becoming a habit, ain't it :roll: ...going to lose revenue doing this...at least from me :roll: ....

I tried it and got only body hits from 60 to 80 m. And all bear shots are no vital but only body hits, also from 15 m! :shock:

Ah well now you know how to test to see if a rifle is good just from doing that, thanks for giving your results m8. :)
Test helps because I've tried the 6.5x55 Bolt Action Rifle and it CAN hit brain at 80m Moose decoy, odd thing is though the 6.5x55 Bolt Action Rifle isn't even ethical for Moose. See the funny part here. ;)

Just put some 50 rounds on the beesties at RFF range. No brain hit on the 80m Moose, some single lung hits on several Moose and body shots only on the Bears. Well I bought it, hoped it would be a step up from the 6.5x55, come back Swede, it tempted me with its looks.

Clearing the caches did it. Thanks. This new weapon I'd probably not buy. Seemed a bit weak in the live stream for my liking and we already have a bunch of guns that are "meh". I'd rather see the two new ammo types being added instead. And also the 9.3x74R of course but I get tired of even listening to myself saying one more word about this god forsaken rifle.

I'm not sure if they realize it, but this delayed release strategy only makes them look tight-fisted and ham-handed. It does nothing for the image of the company as an open-for-business entity, rather it makes them look almost entirely self-serving. And to what end, to what actual purpose does this posturing via bait-and-wait on immediately marketable weapons provide? Anybody? Increased demand? Improved sales? Or at least the base effect of tantalization for titillation? All I get is aggravation, of delay, and astonishment, at the missed opportunity. This rifle was the perfect compliment to Piccabeen Bay and should have coincided with its release. Sales missed to people who have already passed through the exit gate are irreplaceable you know. Haven't you heard the maxim "strike while the iron is hot?" Unbelievable. Meanwhile PB struggles to attract even a handful of hunters.

What gives EW? You got a knot in your skivvies? You need an enema, Darlin'? Quit holding your breath all the time and exhale for a change; you might actually prefer the crisp, refreshing bursts of oxygen-sweetened air whistling through your starving, pneumonic, crepe paper, wizened lungs.

100% agree with you Jimbo. Well said.
