Don't do the shoot at 100-yd. deal and try and match your trajectory to the reticle. The only way to know what's going on downrange is to shoot at those distances. Shooting @ 100 doesn't tell you anything in this regard.
Thanks..... But im not trying to match my trajectery to the reticle.... What im trying do do is see if can use the reticle a little differently. I will zero my second cross hair for 300 yards and all dialed shots will be shot off that cross hair. My thinking was I could measure that wind hold at at 100 in moa, then that way all my dialed shots would have at least a 2 moa hold if I needed it.trying to eliminate dialing for wind. Now I realize that two moa of wind is not alot and ill still have to dial some if its blowin more than say 5-7 mph but figured if this works I could ge some good practice dialing elevation and holding some wind out to 6,7,800 yards or so....
Example if the hold measures 2 inches at 100 I could assume this is a two moa hold then shoot at say 600 and measure the same hold and it should be around 12 inches... This will allow me to hold for up to 2 moa of wind on all dialed shots...... Does that make sense..... Im not sure if it will work or not thats why I was wondering if anybody had an actual moa measurement for the wind holds. All it saus in your link is 10 mph drift.....
Perhaps I will give Leupold a call and see what they say.... Ultimately I want to get into an Nightforce like I said but was just trying to make what I got work for a little longer til I can afford one. And also to get in some more practice.
