Re: Consistantly 1 moa off

I found this on a search as I am having the same issue. I just went and started verifying my data at shorter ranges. I started with 600yds tonight, and the G7 data was a full five clicks or 1.25" too high.

I checked and re-checked the data and it continued to come up the same. Maybe someone could check it again for me?

300RUM, 190VLD Hunt @ 3360fps (pro chrono and Pact), 1000', 75 degrees, 20 percent humidity, Scope Height 1.75".

Leupold 6.5x20 with target turrets. A full turn results in 16" of elevation change, and it tracks perfectly in all directions.

G7 says I should be 8.2" high or 33 clicks up at 100yds. In reality it was 28 clicks up...and all three rounds well inside 8" target.


700 yards tomorrow night hopefully.

FIGURED MINE OUT! THE MATH WAS CORRECT! 2+2 IS 4 NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT OR THE POLITICIANS TRY TO TELL YOU OTHERWISE!

My problem was my Leica 1200 was way off. I never measured previously just started shooting at what it said across open fields. The 1200 was two years ago and it has always been dead on since I bought it years ago. Something happened big time this last year or so.

I took out my new 1600-B today(Internal ballistics suck) and was immediatly getting different readings. Put a new battery in the 1200...and was still getting different readings. So I measured (roller wheel) 100yds on the road...1200 was giving readings of -25-35 yards at 100. 1600 was right on. So then I measured every 100yds and marked it with the wheel and 1600.

The G7, Shooter, and Pact program were all very close to reality. At 5, 6, 700 my combo is only off 2-3 clicks at 100yds. Every one of the distances would have been close enough to kill, but it took a couple clicks to fine tune it dead nuts.

LOL...my previous 1000 yard shooting was actually on at about 800. Guess I was not doing as well as I thought.

Trust the program...it uses math...and math is always correct as long as the correct process is used.
