Re: RETICLE?

Hello Dave

I recall you saying that you had a self imposed range of 750 yards.

That would warrent the rangefinder scale at that distance and I see why you like that one.

I can't remember a shot less then 1050 yds that we have taken to kill our game while LR hunting.

We are talking different yardages here and the norm is 1250 "plus" and usually out to 1500 or more for us.

Like I mentioned, the spotter round first works best for us at the range we shoot.
Some have stated they don't like the additional ranging grids in the view finder & some do not.
I happen to be on the side of the one's who don't.

That certainly does not make me right and someone else wrong.

It's just something that has worked for many of the Longrange hunters I have been around for 25 or 30 yrs now.

I guess we can all "agree to disagree" with the others point of view and let the newbie make his choice in the field and at the yardage he wants to shoot.

It's real hard to argue with "actual fire" when seeing the bullet impact with the spotter first system at extended range.
As you know, most if not all ballsitics charts are not dead on from day to day and at different altitudes.
Actual fire now comes into play

Re: RETICLE?

Okay Darryl... I get the idea [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Have you been taking to my wife? She also feels the need to tell me things a few times to let is soak through/in.


P. S. I'll fix the rapid fire response posts, put a little oil on that mouse trigger..

Re: RETICLE?

Hello Dave and All

Sorry for the repeat on the posts.
Just changed computers.

I'm having problems on the Lap top and it is working so slow that I didn't think the post went on the forum. .

I kept hitting the button.

I will delete it unless Len would like to.

SORRY [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

Re: RETICLE?

Entertainment value is called "the day Darryl had a pituatary malfunction"

See what Old Age does to you.

I better go burn some powder and haul some corn to the deer. The Local Sportsman club gives out two bags (100 # each) to each member every Saturday. I will take the 4 bags (2 for Carol) and let the deer have a treat. The Temp. here is about 8 degrees right now and it was 1 degree not long ago.
