ok went out yesterday and the wind was all over 2-18mph.
i was shooting at 760 and 1000 yards the wind was 3/4 value out of the 2:30 the first milk jug at 760 i missed it by 2 inches to the left and the second hit dead center. now the 1k was diffrent i shot 7 rounds at it and hit it 1 time i kept missing it by about 4 inches on either side of it but my elevation was right on from the start. i know that i need a lot more practice do you guys have any tips for me what made your hits at long range more consistened

what made shooting in the wind easyer for you guys?

I'd Rather Make a Slow Hit Than a Fast Miss!

I have been trying to find that smiley face for the same spot on my gun. Where did you end up getting it from ?


With each step in the bush, you are a step closer.

I couldn't find one either, so I just drew that in AutoCad That one's just a paper tester with some stick glue, I want to get some actual stickers made now.

That which does not kill me......has made a huge tactical error
