I'll have to agree with you on this one. I got a chance to do some P.D shooting on Sunday with my 6x47 with 105 Amax's. My youngest brother(15) managed a 400 yd. shot that launched the P.D 6 feet into the air. I have rarely seen one go this high. We made a lot of awesome one shot hits on P.D's out to 600yds. I tried 4 shots at 950 with my first shot landing 12 inches right with perfect elevation. The next three were missed only by inches, but the wind was up and down too much. my wind meter
was reading 10-22 mph. in a very short period of time. I had my Exbal on my phone and with my swaro range finder it made it pretty hard to miss at 500yds. or less. With the lighter bullets 600yd shots. would have been like my experiance shooting at 950 with my heavy's in the wind we were dealing with. Needless to say I was very impressed with the bullet performance and the ability to make one shot hits at extended ranges.
P.S My 7 yr. old son managed to take a prairie dog at a ranged 399 yds. His very first shot at a P.D and his very first shot with a center fire rifle. I lined up the gun off a bi-pod with a rear bag and told him when he got the dot on the p.d to pull the trigger. well it sure didn't take him long and he had one down range. Upon impact the prairie dog lifted off the ground about 1 foot and fell as dead as dead gets. I must say I was one proud papa! exit wound was one whole side of the P.D. He also managed a head shot at 50 ft. with my .22 rim-fire. It was an awesome day. If I get a chance I will start a post with pix of my P.D shoot.
