Re: A few picts from MOAG shoot in Idaho

Big Al is still the only guy that has successfully hefted the MOAG into standing position without ripping a whole in his pants! That pic is definetly one for the books.

    Yeah, if you had a deer running away from you at 100 yards you would just have to wave good bye to him! If you had a deer at 800 yards, it would be hard to bring the scope down that far to shoot. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    I never did ask you what your minimum range was for shooting the crosshairs with the MOAG? Is it actually around 800 yards?

    Well, we don't really like to shoot the moag at anything under a mile but when I was doing load development, we were able to get it down to 300 yards by bottoming out the scope. The highest point in the traj for a 2k shot is somewhere around 150 feet high at around 800 yards if memory serves me right.

    We have 40 minutes into the base and rings which gives us a 1500 yard zero. Then we have about 43 minutes left in the scope so that can get us out to about 2200 yards give or take a few based on the atmospherics.

    That is so wild. If you were aiming at a 2000 yard target looking through the windows of a 10 story building, and the building was at 800 yards, you could hit the target and miss the building.

    Wicked.
