What did shooter tell you for spin drift and what was the TOF for that shot, what cant device are you using, what scope, what retical, what shooting position ext? And by the way Great shooting!!
I don't want to post a Google earth of this spot as anyone who has been in the area would recognize it and I want to keep it to myself since no one shoots there.
I need a vectronix badly as really the shot data is not relevant if you don't have a dead nuts range and at best it's only an educated guess, a lack of ELR range finder isn't going to stop us shooting though but it does hamper the hunting which is what my buddy wanted this rifle built for.
The solution we reverse engineered was U62.3 and L13.8 but he had U62.5 and L13.5 tied on, Coriolis off U62.8 and L13.2, Spin off also U62.8 and L11.8.
Impact velocity at target was 1346 fps 1207 ft lbs of energy with a flight time of 1.985 seconds.
Optic is a Sightron SIII 6-24x50 MOA from site sponsor Shoot-Long.com, anti cant is a Hollands level, we use our phones for angle.

Re: Pushing it out, 1930 yards!

BnG, you give me a few days notice and name the day. I will come down and we will range a bunch of distances for you with my PLRF10 and mark them off.

Then all the data you already have will be confirmed. I will bring one of my sticks and we will burn a little powder too.

You can blindfold me on the way to your range...

Jeff

Jeff,

If you don't burn all your powder over there in dillon stop in twin bridges on your way back and we can burn a little more killing rocks over here.

Re: Pushing it out, 1930 yards!

BnG,

You have the "Shooter" app so why not download the "Rangecard" app and use it to measure your shooting distance.

Simply turn on the GPS function on your phone, then take a possition reading at your target, then drive out to your shooting location and the "Rangecard" app will tell you how many yards it is to the target.

At a regular shooting location, repeat the procedure a few times and "average" the distance to get a very accurate distance reading.

It will give you a distance that is very close to being correct and is far cheaper than a ELR laser rangefinder.
