Re: Boone and Crocket reticle range test.
Grouper is right, only most hunters don't want to go to the bother to learn the math and techniques, nor do they buy into the idea that there is time to crank on the necessary adjustments.
Fact is, multiple aiming point reticles do work, but again to make them work you have to practice just like Nottoofar is doing. I tested all of the available reticles a couple of years ago, even photographed live deer through some of them, and shot them a bunch. Made some pretty long kills (525 or so) with the TDS on one of the .308 rifles.
There ain't no free lunch. Atmospheric changes, loads, barrel quirks etc. induce variables that these reticles do not handle automatically.
I believe that the multiple aiming point reticles are good, the NPR-2 is a great example, but we can do similar things with the good old mildot design if we shoot enough to learn what dots are on out to what distance. We can even play games by varying the power of second plane scopes to customize dots to distances.
I am using both, either by learning where the NRP-2 intersections work or where my dots coincide as we shoot our drop charts.
Anything that lets us shoot longer more accurately is worth using. My goal is to continue extending my confident killing distance (as in first shot hits) - and to keep up with wind and mirage reading skills. Much more accurate to click in wind than to hold off - if there is time.
