Re: Range finders

I guess when I sell my Russian units at $2950.00 it's really not so bad of a deal then, especially since I saw them advertised elsewhere for $10,000.00.

Maybe I should raise the price? [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Take care and good shooting.

My 338/416 with the 300 Gr MK at 42 degrees (just rechecked) is good for 7 Miles out. It don't have a heck of a lot of energy dropping out of the sky though. I still wouldn't want to get hit by it.

Re: Range finders

I am curious about something???

Is the reading from a rangefinder the actual distance OR do I still have to adjust for angle is shooting uphill or down? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]


Good Shooting!

Re: Range finders

Rangefinders give you the actual distance between you and the target... you will have to calculate all other factors.

Re: Range finders

Catshooter, does this include angle os shot?

If I am shooting downhill at a 45 degree angle and I range 800 yards with a laser rangefinder.....do I still have to compensate for the 45 degree angle?

Thank You

Re: Range finders

John...

Of course. The range to the target is 800, but the horizontal range (the effect of gravity) is less.

For a laser ranged target at 800 yds, and 45 degrees down, the setting you would use on your scope is 565 yards.
