I don't recall saying anything about "bad technique", but if that is your interpretation so be it. I've not seen any evidence of extra so called 'reach' and still think you're seeing what you want to see.

Using a lens of greater focal length is cropping to a smaller area of the scene before you, the same effect as putting an equal number of pixels onto a smaller sensor while using the same focal length. As long as you use a lens good enough and technique good enough and stick to lower ISO the 400mm lens on FF will perform the same as a 600mm lens on APS-C.

Maybe you are refusing to see the truth before your eyes. I don't let emotion cloud my judgements and observations. I take it you own a FF camera and want to believe an AP-C camera can't outperform it in any way.

Misuse of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
