Re: Kestel 2500NV
I was thinking about this a bit more. I think in the instructions it says to calibrate the kestrel each time. I might be wrong. I calibrate the unit for that day and set the altitude via the baro pressure. Once that is in I can leave the baro section set to zero altitude and then have the correct elevation and absolute baro on the kestrel.
I have still not worked out a great system yet for all this as I have a GPS, kestrel, and Leica with me at all times. Realistically I do not need the GPS anymore for elevation referencing. In fact, all I need the kestrel for is windage now. If I range the target with the leica I can get horizontal distance and absolute. The kestrel will give me wind. If I do this right I can simply range the target, turn the turrent, hold for wind, and shoot. I plan to order a G7 knob for my Night Force. For now I just need a chart for 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, with MOA zeros from 300 yards to whatever.
