Re: Ranging elk with a Nightforce NP-1RR?

Crowmag, when is your hunt?
I`m going on a longrange elk hunt my self during the 2nd hunt in Oct.(16-24). And am also using the same scope as you. Would be interesting to know what ever you find out about ranging an elk with it if something else comes up besides what is already posted. Would also like to know how things turn out on your hunt.

thanks, Warren

Crow

Call the nightforce guys and ask them. They can give you exact references for power settings for sizes your requesting.

I called Nightforce and they said to put a box the size of an elk at 300 yards and bracket it in the scope and turn the power to the spot that works at 300 yards and mark the power ring.

I`d have to say that this puts us in the same shoes, then.

Re: Ranging elk with a Nightforce NP-1RR?

Hey guys where u gonna be hunting-- i live in Pueblo, CO, and i'm going deer hunting in Area 43. Let me know if u pass thru Pueblo. If u have time we can get some coffee together or something-- 719-564-5609.

Hey Eric, let me know how well that bracketing system works out-- my calculations should be right on if the ocular, and subtensions are calibrated properly. I've tested some of those ranging calculations, and they're usually real close if not right on, on some signs at various distances out in front of my house.
