Just got done watching the video... made me want to bust out the gear and head for the hills! Great job Shawn. My favorite shots were the two on the 1103 yard rock... didn't hit it either time, hey... it was only 6"x9". But, I'm sure the two 1/4 Min. misses scared the crap out of that poor rock. Can't wait to get the long range bomber put together so I can join in the 1K fun.

Thanks for sharing all this wonderful information and experience with us... ~yb

Glad you liked it. On the 1103 shots you just can't hit all of them. That spot you see is where a small spring comes out of the side of the hill and the elk and deer have beat it to the dirt. Seemed like a spot a guy might want to know the shot on.

Allow me to clarify... either of those shots would have absolutely hammered a coyote, let alone a big game animal. That's why I was so impressed with those two shots, even though they were "misses". We shoot at 4" clays all the time out to about 600 yds... even with an extremely accurate rifle they are tough to hit beyond 300 yards or so. But, as long as I'm peppering them consistently... with an occasional busted clay... I know I'm inside the boiler room of any critter I care to shoot.

Another thing I truly enjoyed about the video was the way all the technical data was presented in a digestable way. Shawn did a great job presenting data, providing a situational example (often with a diagram), and then teaching how he compensates/corrects. I can see how one of his two day classes would make me a MUCH better field shooter. I'll have to get signed up for one... as soon as the LR rifle is put together.

Thanks again Shawn for a video that I'm sure I'll watch over and over... sorry if it sounded like I was razzing you for missing the rock, my intent was quite the opposite. ~yb

YB,

I hadn't taken it that way at all. Like you say very small targets are just an aiming point at really long distance. Just like the 1600 yard shots on the 12" plate in the video I miss the first shot by 2" or so and get a second round hit. The first shot would have still been a great shot on a deer or elk.

Shawn,
Saw that your video has info on MOA, is there anything on millradians and use of mil dot, or is all geared to moa? Thanks... David

David,

It is all geared toward moa and direct dialing. I had considered covering mil-dots, maximizing your duplex, various balistic reticules etc. but ended up with almost 2 hours just to cover moa and direct dialing well enough. If there was enough interest I would do a Mil-Dot volume covering the use and application of Mils. A good portion of this video is geared toward reading and correcting for various conditions in the field.
