Re: Hitting high @ 1351

Oh crap! Alan, do I remember reading where you are now using a G7 BR2 for an RF now? If so be careful of that large beam my friend. A mis range of even a few yards will screw you up big time for ELR. They are very nice and handy, but I have seen them fail at distances we are talking easily. Just a word of caution here. I can see a Vectronix in your future.

Re: Hitting high @ 1351

So, what you're saying is one doesn't have to be super accurate and dial in

40.10.37.28 ??

Which to means translates as 40 deg, 10 min, 37.28 seconds North.

And all I have to do is dial in the 40 to Shooter?

No! No! No! I love my G7. Plus, since I'm reading it against a rock wall/cliff, I know my ranges are very accurate. No V for me!!!!

I see Townsend is 46 North. And Mapleton, Utah is 40 N.

Yes, that is what I do, and have always done. But I guess we could compare the differences of an entry of 40 and 41 to see what the solution difference is.

Well if all you are going to hunt are mountain goats on rock ledges you are set!! Never say never, trust me the bite hurts.

Re: Hitting high @ 1351

Yeah, but the "near" and "far' feature of my G7 has been coming in really handy to dilute out foreground or background reflective targets. I tested it against my, now sold, Leica 1600-B and they matched up perfectly.

Re: Hitting high @ 1351

Ok, cool.

Just for my curiosity. Then why are you still using the Shooter program?
