That is a great sytem, I like that a lot. It makes sense and I like that you have the best of both worlds.

Out of curisity what do you do for wind adjustments out past 500 yards? Sorry last question, I really appreciate all the help.

Thanks in advance
Patrick

To put it simply I dont do anything the reticle gives you some hold points for a 5 mile wind. If im hunting big game I would not take the shot since its beyond the range or capibilites i have placed on the rig. I would use a different rig or get closer
If it was a rock chuck varmit yote or something I would use kentucky windage.
How ever a good Balistic program will give you wind adjustments so if you want to play in the wind have the turrets installed for both elevation and windage. I had that done on my daughters rig and it works good I had a special cds turrets installed for wind.
