Re: Nightforce problems.???
You must have posted as I was typing, slowly [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] .
It took me a minute to see what you were doing dividing by two, and at the same time keeping the results the same.
You are ruducing the object size number in half, and tics are 2 MOA apart, so counting them as "one" reduces them in half too. This does make it easier in the head. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Thanks for the tip.
I've noticed that a mature moose is about 1/3rd deeper through the chest than a 2 yr old. I was looking at two different ones at 400 yards ranged with a laser, the reticle clearly showed the difference and by how much too. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I think it was about 6 ticks vs. 4 ticks or real close to that.
We've ranged rims on our vehicles (no one in them of course) out past 1000 yards with the R2 while using the lasers to verify the distance and always were +-15 yards and we weren't even using a very good rest either.
Another pointer too is if you have a laser range finder and can range an animal accuratly, you can then measure it's head size, ear length, chest depth and OAL etc using the R2 reticle with amazing accuracy.
