That is an impressive bullet but not as impressive as that shot! Congrats on an outstanding day of hunting!

Broz - nice shooting!! Especially considering it seems to blow like crazy most of the time in antelope country. Were you dealing with any wind on that 1200 yard shot? That would make it even more impressive.

Thanks for the continued updates.

Not much wind. It was morning and I was in the shade of the rising sun and the antelope was in direct sun. I used Coriolis Drift and SD and dialed a 3 mph 7:00 wind. But even a light 1/4 value light wind had a correction of almost 24" with SD and CD 1285 yards.

Honestly, you are inspirational. You humbly say 'not much wind' then go on to state how 'not much' is really a 24" correction. To me that's MUCH wind! I appreciate you being so open with your efforts and sharing the info.

And it seems like Bryan's new app is working really well for you. Has it been a big improvement over Shooter or whatever you were using previously? (sorry to stray off topic)

No, I am using bryans AB app but at this time have not gotten indepth enough with it to see the benifits of it over Shooter. I think they are both awesome apps.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755
