Tradition

I have a safe full of expensive firearms. Yet when I go out on a hunt, I grab the .303 I have owned since age 16. Nothing shifts the point of aim. It never has a stoppage. Despite not being made from stainless steel, it doesn't rust because I know how to look after it. The bore is bright and unmarked after 70 years of use.

That's being conservative.

You go with what has been tested and known to work. There is no need to go for something new and untried.
