If this is not sincerely taken into consideration any and all testing will be tainted. I once had a gunsmith that was what I considered on of the best state that if he built one of his rifles with his "barrel stretcher" on it he could guarantee all cold bore shots. This was George Vais of muzzle brake fame. The Burris will simply take out all windage and range error from the day to day variences. Somthing a man can not do with consistency..


Then he can bolt the gun to a bench and never learn anything, Burris eliminator, some pixie dust from George vias hell he should just stay home and play video games. The whole point in this kinda shooting is learning to shoot in all conditions when that first shot needs to count. Making the man more consistent not eliminating the man. To guarantee a gun to shoot an accurate cold bore and being able to shoot that cold bore shot are two very different things.

    After 11 days of shooting, what do you think your ethical shot distance is on a live animal?

    I'd like to see video of several days of shooting like this with the burris scope setup.

    Can it really do it or not...?

    I think you need to be hunting with a caliber that's a little better for dealing with those winds that have been troubling you. But as far as this challenge goes, it's probably fun trying to figure it out. Just not sure, (if you were doing this to be better prepared for hunting season) if I would be practicing with the rifle you're using.
