Re: Bad luck area
My cousin came out yesterday with his new scope so we put it on his 243 to try it out. Sighted it in at 100yds then I loaded my ballistics program for it. Dailed it in for 400 and he tried a shot. Too late to walk out so we dailed in for 700 and we each tried a couple then had supper so it was to dark to check. Whent out this morning and we were high, looks like his rifle shoots higher than my program. 3-4 inches at 400 and about 12 inches at 700. Had about 7 deer out behind the target at 700 and the bullets were hitting about 50yds short of them. After each shot they would trot about 50 feet. It is really tempting to use them for targets when they are right there.

Too close is knife work, ie barrel thumps em on the head [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
