We go as high as 2 to 5 more grs of powder as the temp. drops into the freezing zone. This depends on the case capacity and bore diameter.

As per the 22X bigeyes, yes you can see the vapor trail with the 22X quite easy and at ranges out past 2000 yds. You can also see bullet impacts at that range into the ground or off of rocks VERY easily.

Regular binoculars (even expensive ones) don't always give good definition at extended range because of the shorter focal length and smaller eyepiece diameter. The bigeyes are the way to go as per much less eye strain and definition all the way to the target when watching the vapor trail.
22X wide angle is the most used power in the bigeyes especially in the 60 MM Spacemasters.

You can really see the 338 300 gr vapor trail at 3300 FPS, even 15 yards to the side of the shooter instead of directly behind him.

Darryl... thank you, thank you

I just want to know if I can increase gr of powder below zero. There is one minor problem with this one. The temperature here is different from 12 hours of driving up north so I will not know if it is safe to increase the gr of powder because I haven't tried firing the rifle here with below zero.

I could think that I could wait until December-January, when the temperature here drops below zero then I'll go to local range and fire to see if the pressure is alright.
Then it should be fine for moose hunt next year?

Alright, 22x wide angle with 60mm that is. I'll start looking for 2 used spotting scopes with the bracket.

Thanks again,
-Denny
