Re: dialed in 500 hundred yards..
First of all, welcome to LRH.
You might get better, and more informed opinions and advice, if we knew if the rifle is a factory or custom gun, what is the caliber/cartridge, what is the bullet and load, what is the current scope etc.
Also when you say “dialed in my new rifle to 500 yards”, do you mean you have shot it from 100 yards out to 500 and know all of the drops and ballistics to that point or did you just shoot at 500 yards. Also, what do you plan on shooting, game or just targets, and under what conditions?
What do you plan on shooting, as far as ranges go? Up to 1000 yards or do you plan on going beyond if the gun is capable?
Lots of questions but they all apply when making a decision about changing equipment. I’m sure you’ll get lots of help and opinions so good luck with your shooting. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
