Best reply yet. I agree that fun is greatly overrated. An example, I likt to shoot at targets using mostly rifles from a benchrest, because it's fun to put all the bullets in one hole.Handloaded cartridges give highest accuracy and lowest cost. So, I segregate cases by batch and to be doubly sure, weight and dimension. I weigh each powder charge to one-twentieth of a grain. I shoot between heartbeats. I built my rifle on a 1941 Oberndorf Mauser action with a Unertl 'scope.Sometimes fun requires a bit of prep work, but most times greater investment returns greater rewards. As for program mode, it certainly has it's uses. Unfortunately none of my cameras has it, although one could say that a manual center-the-needle camera has all modes simultaneously.
