I'm glad the thread is back on track. But Dick did it first....
I've put way too many rounds down the AM barrel to get where I am.
The video actually took me to another level.
I've mounted a different scope since hunting season. I sold the SS and put the Weaver Tactical on the Big Girl, BTW Grey's Anatomy was pretty good tonight, at least the medical part. I have my 200 yd zero and from learning from the video will have limited shots to finalize the drop chart.
My winter camping/scouting will involve truthing the drop chart from the actual shooting spot from about 780 out to 1200 to 1300 yds.
I've developed a nifty way to create a near perfect range chart that requires a gizmo for the camera to rotate properly a stitcher feature in photoshop or special software and the range finder.
For where the range finder won't reach, I'll fire for effect and factor the come-ups into the system to get the range.
Then let that bull, bear, cougar, coyote and maybe a moose, if I get a moose tag, pass through that area.
The only problem anticipated will be the5 mile snowmobile trip to the trail head then the snowshoe trek up the hill with a couple of days of stuff and digging a hole in the snow for the bivvy. What fun
