That is what everyone tells me, but I originally sighted in at 200 yds. at the elevation here which is about 800 feet. When I sighted in in Wyoming at an elevation of about 4,000 feet I could not tell the difference in my zero at 200 yards. Then when I went to the 2,000 yd range. Out there I was able to hit the gongs by turning the turret to the yardage and hit the gongs all the way out to 1,200 yards.
Now let me make it clear that I just didn't lay down and hit the targets one after the other. The two guys in the picture were calling the wind for me and some times I would hit, but most of the time I did not. The wind was the determining factor not the elevation of the turret. That was perfectly clear to all that was there. They had a 3" gong at 700 yds that I hit 3 out of 5 shots.
My rifle was shooting so good with the Viper PST that they all retired their rifles and only shot mine so they could hit the gongs too.
and they were shooting monster calibers.
