Re: Holding over compared to dialing in MOA
The further you reach out, the more problems are encountered as the bullet slows down.
Yes indeed, the sighter shot does eliminate many of them (at the distance we shoot)and that's why I mentioned the different styles of shooting/hunting, the range your attempting to reach out to and also the equipment used.
We are usually (not always) setup in a stationary setting with heavy bench style guns, heavy tables and extreme long barrels on our big rifles.
Like I mentioned, it's not for everyone but, most Longrange hunters in our area of the State, hunt the same way.
Even in a thick area, a person with a good set of bigeyes can see the vapor trail and bullet impact (normally) going into the target.
To each his own though on this topic.
I know what the Longrange hunters do here and when we go out west for elk and mule deer.
