Re: Shooting on an angle

Thanks, Michael, for posting that corrective bit of information. I had assumed that was what was causing minor offsets in some of my calculations, and was just about to consider the fact that the 100 yard zero was only applicable to level-fire scenarios. <knocking his head> Sometimes I really am not so swift.. Sheesh! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Anyhow, thanks for that bit of info.

Dave

Re: Shooting on an angle

Dave,
You gave me a SWAG wind-dial deely, neet little gadget that works. I have a Slope Doper in my kit, mainly because I like the name since here on the flat-ass prairies we never shoot more than 5 degrees from flat.

More rifles - no way, not the Dave King that I know!!! Nikons just arrived in the US, should have something this coming week. Hope to hunt with one in Texas next weekend. Maybe the new Hornady Bonded boolits in factory loads.

Guess you are aware of Steve Suttles situation, he is in for an operation tomorrow. Steve's in our thoughts and prayers.

Re: Shooting on an angle

I need to do a little more testing first. I will say, though, that it is rated to 4,000 yards.

Stay tuned.
