    Roy, I could see your shot looked liked the wind was blowin pretty good from the snow it kicked up, looked like it was right to left? Don't feel too bad hell I went to shot one day and forgot my bullets lol. As far as the zero stop maybe you better just get that yourself, I don't beleive in Santa anymore, and never did beleive in Obama.

    Roy,

    You're doing stuff I can only dream of...but some day.

    I'm guessing near the W as well...?

    To the others, I can attest that today has been a gusty day in these parts.

    Terrible things to say Rick. Not believing in Santa this close to Christmas... Terrible. I know Santa exists, just look at my credit card.....

    Not believing in Obama, I can fully understand that. I doubt that Obama ever even owned a BB gun.

    Re: Set my 1 Mile Gong

    When I went to the top the wind was blowing directly from the South directly from the target to the setup.

    The impact shows a pretty good right to left wind.

    The wind where I was was from my right from about 5 or so degrees from the right.

    I don't know the max trajectory height but I bet that's where the mystery will be resolved.

    Shooter called for -0.7 MOA, I supposed that meant "to the left, but what do I know? Habit would not let me click with the wind so I went 0.7 MOA right into the wind.

    Well, have you knocked any of that purdy yella paint off that steel yet? Other than maybe dropping it off the tailgate?

    I want to see/hear that big 375 smack it at a mile!

    How's the weather? still nasty up high?
