"Bullet Drop"

they can get to be overkill, so keep it simple. Good info in, good info out.

None are perfect. you will need to shoot it to confirm unless you're shooting just to hit a torso sized steel plate.

If you shoot the cold bore and get the boot during the first round you'll need 11 rounds.
If you make it to the end could be 50+ rounds.
Good Luck,

Jump on in, slow, lots of fun and everybody helps….between angus, Buzz and me we probably get data from 3-5 apps and always willing to share…of course, when you see Buzz shoot you probably won’t want his data. bolt

C’mon folks, we need 1 more and preferably more than that! A great time with a great group of people/shooters.

Great day? Holy smokes, look at those wind changes! .8 MOA hold isn’t much….until the wind switches 180 degrees as you pull the trigger! LOL

Not worried about the caliper but I’ll buy them if you want to sell them. You just need to come shoot! You bringing that new blue rig?

Yes, I went to Fossil Point today and FINALLY confirmed my 400 elevation. If I can figure out windage, I can at least get my 11 shots in

Had some strong Margaritas tonight, hope I can still make it stir

Unfortunately for Buzz he had his rifle dialed in for 400 yds but we were shooting 500 yds. eeks333

In my first match on my first shot:
Me: "I center punched that sucker."
Mikael: "You sure did, unfortunately that was the wrong target."
Me: "Sonofabeach." bang bang bang

It was a great day with light winds and some outstanding shooters. Thanks Mikael for another great match.

Yes we did was a fun day indeed.
First time out there this year and was a beautiful day. Wind issues were minimal and I came it 3rd. First time in the winners circle for me, surprised me.
Thank you Mikale, Lori and David for hosting a great match.
Good seeing everyone today!

When I got the boot the second time I was packing up and didn't know I was a winner.
