Went out today to verify my velocity at 800, and hope to keep a sub moa group.
Ended up being 815yds but my set up was less than reliable.
Shot off my bipod and monopod because the angle was too wacked out to use my rear bag correctly. -4 degree angle and rough, hard ground.
Wind was again in my face 8-10mph from 12-1 o'clock but this time I didn't make any adjustments...just held right edge of the yellow square.
Mirage got crazy pretty quick, but gotta learn to deal with it till my cover gets here.
Here is the home made "Shoot-N-See" target through the scope on 32x at 815yds.
22"x28" with a 3"x3" Post-It to aim at.
As for the drop test, I'm happy...velocity needed for 500 held true at 815 so that's good, but I'm hoping to improve my form/technique before next fall. At any rate...she'll kill a deer.
Sent the first 3 at an old target at 100 to make sure I reset my turrets yesterday...I have a problem with that.
Here were my last 7 at 815yds.
Pretty sure the one hit on yellow was my first shot because I couldn't see it and was worried.
2, 3 and 4 were on the left...5, 6 and 7 were on the right. Very easy to pick out the pink on black.
Elevation adjustment was exactly 20 minutes.
8-10mph from 12-1:00
