Re: Parallax vs Focus

Darrel...

Thanks. I'm shooting a Sniper's match in W.Va in the 17th/18th, and for the first one, I may not be ready, but I'll make the one after that if I can.

BTW... do you know the altitude (above sea-level) of the Williamsport range?


Dave...
Eyepiece focus has never been a problem for me, I've never heard it confused with parallax.

There is the belief by many (and I've heard it from military shooters also), that you can correct parallax by using the eyepiece. Very badd juju.

You live near the match... come to the Sniper's match on the 17th/18th. It's going to be a blast (HA!).

Me and my spotter are bringing two 50-BMGs (AR-50's) for informal shooting after the match, and someone is bringing a Barrett 82A. I have made a spigot adaptor thingie for the AR-50 that allows the use of either the Parker-Hale or the M14 (unmodified). They both work very well.

I'm shootin 830 grain M48's that are better than the forth of July... trace for over two miles, and a big detonation and 8 foot cloud of smoke on contact...

Re: Parallax vs Focus

Paul,
An engineer who can talk "people-talk"... you are a what this world needs more of. Thanks for a great batch of info, easy to read and understand.

Dave,
I have several boxes of Barnes .50 cal projectiles, they look like copper toothpicks. Won't work in in-lines, maybe we should get together and launch the suckers. I could pull eight or ten .308 cartridges to get us some powder for each .50, you just bring the new GardnerGun and some primed brass [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Parallax vs Focus

Hi Darrel...

Thanks... I wrote it for a friend in a fashion that it could be understood by anyone (even a G... Gi... Gir... Girl! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] )

As to the information... Yes (I think [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] )

I have boxes of mail from the last few months that I have to go through, but I do have a memory of the letter getting here.
I plan to send in my money, grab a stick, drive the eleventeen hundred miles, and let you guys embarrass the hell out of me [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

When is the first weekend that it starts?

CatShooter.
