Wind drift is considerable at that distance.
I was shooting my .338 Lapua with the 300 gr Berger Hybrids and I use a G1 BC of .820

I custom fitted my base so I am 3 moa off bottom when zeroed. That is roughly 43 moa. The Baro was 25.61 and I would say it is real close to 4100 ft altitude. If I run into the problem many more imes I will go back to a 5.5~22 to get the added 35 moa. But most of the time I am good and can reach 1900 and change with this scope.

For sure " wind drift" is something you can believe in and count on especially at these distances...

Re: A Great Day of Long Range Shooting

Hey Jeff, had a great time out with you and John.

I was the shooter manning the 30-06. it's a 22" bbl, and I'm launching 208 AMax at 2720 fps via RL22. Glass is MK4 16X, with 140 moa internal, mounted on a 45 moa Badger Ordnance base.

This rifle/load is consistent out to the mile target. I tried the 2295 yd target but was unable to get any feedback. Had dialed 110 moa, and held another three mils on the erector. No impacts observed. Retained velocity would have been around 925 fps or so. Pretty much out of steam that far out, but had to give it a try.

Seeing John's consistency at 2295 yds was pretty impressive, he was launching a 208 AMax at about 2900 fps.

Our firing point was at an elevation of right at 4500'. The target at 2295 had to be 500-1000' higher than that.

Good Shooting, Shane

Hi Jeff,

Nice shooting. I noticed the 1 mile with 300smk, if you KNOW TO READ the wind you are right on. The rest is just fun, fun, fun...
How did you range the 2225yrd?
My swaro ranged to 1985yrd on bright day on rocks, and the rest is just ...back off the rest 200-300yrds and we are ready to shoot.

I have the 8-32x56 NSX and used the same custom rail to be 2MOA at the bottom for 100yrds zero... In this way I noticed I NEVER LOOSE ZERO...

My Swaro would get 1900 just before dark on a rock wall. But would not even come close in bright conditions. I ranged the 2295 rock we were shooting at with my Vectronix PLRF10 in mid day sun. It will range to 2900 plus yards in most conditions. BignGreen and I were even ranging off hand to 2300 plus with it a few days ago in moderate rain. The PLRF10 is an amazing unit and I love the very small beam divergence it has. It is the most precise RF I have ever pulled the trigger on.

Jeff
