Re: Did the laser RF killed the MilDot ??
I dissagree. Most critters I hunt while using mil-dots are about 18" from back to belly. 27.778*18 = 500. 500 is a constant for 18" critters. If it takes up 1 mil its 500 yards if it takes up 1/2 mil its 1000 yards, 2 mils is 250 yards. You get the point. I regularly get readings from my LRF within 25 yards of my calculation by mil-dot out to 750 yards. 25 yards with the 308 at 750 is quite a bit but 1 quick sighter shot and youre in buisness. I agree that LRF's are way better but there is no harm in practicing for when the unit goes T.U.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
