Darn you guys for getting me hooked on this LRH stuff!!!!
And, the STW! Got my load dialed in about a week ago. Tested it out a few days ago on the gong at 335yds. Dialed the scope, then first shot hit dead center of the gong! Second one was so close I couldn't tell the difference between the two splats. Third one was about 1.5 inches right. This was off the bipod on a rickety table.
Went out today to verify drops at longer range to make sure I was still on the gong. First group at 535yds is below. Lower right is the cold bore shot. Just barely over 4 inches in a 5-10 gusting crosswind. I didn't dial any for windage, I just wanted group and elevation. Of course after this pic, my battery died in my phone so I don't have any more.
Then I finished up at 663 yds. Groups opened up quite a bit, but I'm going to attribute that to the gusting winds, and my rookie wind reading abilities
The drop chart matched beautifully!
For me being new to LRH, hitting the gong at 535 and 663 on every shot was a huge deal!!!!
Thanks again for all of your guys help!!. I've got three tags this season, so I will be posting up my harvesting pics!
