Re: WildcatBullet 338 cal 350 gr elevation at 2000 yards ???

Ok thanks for the imputs :

300 grain bullet w/ rated bc of .768 at 3005 fps.

Rifle zeroed at 1500 yards and is 40" high at 100 yards.

It took between 29 minutes and 31 minutes to hit around the gong.

Elevation is 4888
humidity was about 30%
temp was 50
pressure was around 30.0
wind direction variable but not more than 3-4 mph at the bench.
Scope is mounted about 2.50" off bore.

I need to know the elevation between your closet zero ( 100? 200 ? ) and 1500 yards by the way I can link your muzzle velocity to the trajectory because if you make zero at 1500 yards I doesn t know the velocity at 1500 yards

good shooting

goodgrouper, he wants to know how much elevation it takes to get from your 100 yard zero to 1500 yards.

You didn't say what your closest sight in distance, you told him it took 29 minutes of elevation, but 29 minutes from where? 100 yards 200 yards?

Oh, OK. It takes another 29 minutes <font color="blue"> from</font> the 1500 yard zero to make it to 2000.

I don't know this one in reality because I can't zero it at 100. The scope won't come down that far. According to the ballistic program, it has to be 40" high at 100 to give the 1500 yard zero.

Crunching the numbers, it would be
38.19MOA from 100-1500, or
67.19 from 100-2000.

Re: WildcatBullet 338 cal 350 gr elevation at 2000 yards ???

Okay just trying to figure this one out. We have Dantec running numbers to figure bc out from how many moa or clicks it took and then we had kirby do the same thing and was bashed on it about how erroneous of an error it is. What is the differance or am i missing something. Not trying to start anything just wondering for clarification? The way i see it Both guys are doing the same method and Dantec is using the customary .25" click value for moa. How do you know it is a true .25min click and not a higher value?

Either way from my understanding and what has went on in the discussion about Wildcat bullets bc's is can't go by what one guy gets from how many moa it took for him. Unless goodgrouper of whomever would actually give true specs on his scope using a true .25 min click scope (as advertised) is flawed.

Help me out and understand this. What is making this situation different from previous discussions?

Matt27,

My testing method is to simplistic to offer hard reliable data [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!!

I guess that kind of defines me, simple!!

To each his own but there are far more ways to skin a cat then with a computer or a ballistics calculator in my opinion.

Good Shooting!!
