Re: Classic mistake

Substitute the best Pronghorn I've ever seen in the field, on a hard to acquire tag, and you've got my sad story. It did only take him him a couple of seconds to reach the distance the rifle was actually sighted for, unfortunately he didn't stop there. I'd love to blame it on youth and inexperience, but it wasn't that long ago, and it wasn't the first time I'd made such a mistake. LOL.

Re: Classic mistake

Most of us have made that mistake, in the heat of battle it happens. I now always reset my nobs to zero (200 yards) and have a piece of tape I stick on the cap to visually remind me they are reset. When adjusting I stick the tape on the stock. I also like the covered adjustments on the Leupold's for this reason, use the mil-dot most of the time but dial for longer shots with enough time.
