deduce as you please, sherlock. yes, i have shot a springfield loaded at B&R outdoor range. he didn't have a trophy match, so i had to settle for a 1991a1. the colt didn't have as many bells and whistles, but gracefully held it's own. i didn't feel the need to defend myself, as seldom do i argue on GT. there's nothing wrong with the loaded, i just don't like the asthetics. and however old and worn the cliche "i'm losing IQ conversing with you" is, the song remains the same. and there's no need to shout.
