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?

Re: A few picts from MOAG shoot in Idaho

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.
