That was a great video and a great shot by your friend Jerry. Does your wife know about your habit yet?
Question... what was the MV of the bullet (if you know) and what was the SST's performance at that range? Did it expand? what was the damage? Did it exit?
On the RF reticles I'll share my opinion for the sake of the readers education and nothing personal intended. I have an NSX 5.5-22 with NP-R2 reticle (2MOA) and I used it once to range a 300 yd antelope while shooting a 300 WSM
. It worked well. A lot more wiggle room at 300 yds vs 1000 yds. The average buck deer body is maybe 18" from brisket to top of back. I'm not sure what those Shepherd range circles are calibrated for? Anyway, a 1" error in guestimation or 1" variation in idividual deer size causes a 5.5% error in range estimation which is 55 yds @ 1000 yds, which equates to about 40" of drop difference. And a 1/2" error would result in 20 in drop difference. Dont take this as a flame becasue it's not. It's just an FYI for all the readers. My personal limit on using a reticle for ranging would probably be about 400-500 yds, but that's just me. I noticed you mentioned you had wind flag markers set up at 50 yd increments. Did you use them as backup and how did you did you determine the "exact" yardage of 1022yd?
Once again, enjoyed the video.
