Why? Because P.R.S. match directors can get mean and I've never done it before.

Bolt handle up (left handed) I had to dial down .8 Mil or 2.88" @ 100 yards, and dialed left 1.2 Mil or 4.32" @ 100 yards.

Bolt handle down (right handed) down .9 Mil, right 1.1 Mil

The butt of the stock is on your bicept instead of your shoulder, very awkward. I did manage to hit inside 1" so that should be good enough.

Chad just left the range and said "you'll have to shoot it to figure it out" No kidding!

We had to shoot like that from a 55 gallon barrel on its side, I can't tell you how many people got kicked in the eye by the scope.

Yes suppressors are allowed. But a rifle that is 6-10" longer is less maneuverable, and we do a whole bunch of moving. Most guys do not shoot supressed so you have to wear hearing protection anyway.

Remember a Tasco scope that came from the factory with the adjustments on 'sideways' like that. Always wondered how it would have worked. Also wondered if they 'refurbished' it and sent it back out?
It was sent to the factory and replaced.

And obviously quite well. smile Jason, I would love to take your class, but no clue what MOA MIL and DOPE mean's. Truly afraid after a session with me, you'd quit teaching.

I really am a dummy when it comes to this. Dial in the scope best I can and hope to hit paper.

God bless you sir for what you do and your knowledge.

Janie,

I have taught children. You would leave plenty confident in how to get it all done. 400 yards is not so tough once you'be been out to 800.
