Re: Horus Vision scopes

Darryl,

I have not used their scope, that one is WAY too much clutter for me and I'm sure most anyone. I haven't heard too much on them except when Dick told us they won a match using one, that's about it. It looks like I'll get dad to go shoot the steel with me today. He's watching the mercury pretty close and not liking the 15 degree temp but I sent him the pics from yesterday and it was just too much, pushed him over the edge with those. He'll be over in a hour and head down with me. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I think he's determined to out shoot me today. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] We'll put the plywood backer up behind the steel to see where all of them go if we miss any.


John,

I just used the TMOA setting on accident the first time at 500yds and when it was on the money I just tried it at 1000yds too and damn if it wasn't on there too! There was only 2 mph of wind and I wasn't real concerned with that much. If it gets worse I'll start paying attention to both settings predictions. It called for .8moa this last time but wasn't really needing more than .5moa, the wind was just very, very slight, almost unnoticable.

Re: Horus Vision scopes

I got dad out to 500 yards today. We used hold over this time the others were clicked as I usually do. He was intent on figuring his drop out in relation to the mil-dot reticle in his Springfield Armory. I was on target instantly because I could see the exact moa point on the R2 reticle. He was having a hard time when we got to 500 yards. The program called for 8.6 moa and he didn't have to much experience with the reticle to find 8.6 moa. Well we went at it for a few minutes until we just ended up going down to the target to find he was hitting 18" high on the plywood backer. He was on after that holding just above the second dot a little. I figured it was shooting a lttle flatter than we'd figured. I havn't looked into it yet but will when we go to 1000 yards. He was having a blast after he got on the steel. We were using the 1/2" thick plate and didn't move off the targets to it until we got back to 500yds. It took quite a beating even at 500. 600 yds would be better to start with, it's pretty pock marked and warped now. I ended up using 1.5 tics at 300, 2.5 at 400 and 8 tics at 500 so far. I was dialed in at 7.5 moa yesterday for a perfect zero so I'll have to reconcile why I needed .5 moa more today. My Ballistic Tip loads were shooting over 10 inches higher with the same load, they might be hitting a little higher at 100 yards skewing it a little. I'll recheck, the BCs are real close between the BT, BST and the Scirocco. The BST and the Scirocco are working well at the same settings with the same load and OAL.

Here's a pic of the damage today... that bottom bunch is partly my 7.5 moa hold. The 8 moa line was just checked on paper next to it because dad had the steel pretty wasted and I couldn't pic em out no more. Dad had some iffy SMK loads he was gettin rid of here. All 10 of his 210 Bergers were low in the plywood.
