OK long range guys... I am starting to practice now in preperation for 500 yards shots on a hunt coming up in October. I purchased a 3.5-18x44 Z5 with a ballistic turret and I am thinking about getting two custom turrets made for it. One will be at 0ft elevation, and the other will be at 11,000ft elevation.
My hunt will take place in 9000-14000 ft elevation, with 10-12 being the average (from what I can tell from previous reports). Shots will be around 400 yards on average, but I dont think I will feel comfortable shooting more than 500 yards or so.
They dont make an MOA turret or I would just use that. I will still have my charts for backup / wind / etc...
So my questions is from your experience, will a custom turret setup at 11,000 ft be sufficient for a hunt taking place between 9000-14000ft? I need it in the kill zone if I do my part, but it doens't have to split hairs at 500 yards.
