I guess I missed the mark, so to speak, by using dated information such as contained in uclideen geometry. After months of googlin' to determine the correct spelling of cosine I applied the theory to the LRH application of filling the freezer. Needless to say all attempts were fruitless.
As I was next to my son, calling out cosine of angle changes as the fork horn was standing facing the both of us at a distance of precisely 110.5 yards as indicated by the Leica 1200 scanner LRF.
I called out .995 the shooter made a quick adjustment through the 10X Super Sniper Scope and broke the trigger. It too a few moments to fiddle with the trigger to get functional.
By then the 2 x 2 was still standing there, same spot. I shouted, well kind of whispered a new angle adjustment. After the adjustment for the new .9915 reading the shooter yanked the trigger. Learned w/the first shot to do no more of that breaking stuff. Rifle went off. A 140 gr Hornady spbt left the muzzle at 3195 FPS and went somewhere down the mountain side.
I reacquired the said target in the Nikon XLII (Waterproof), BTW made in china [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. The target remained standing in the same spot with an inquisitive look on his face.
I called out a new reading, .900! Again adjustments were made. The Mauser 98, fajen thumbhole stocked, Lilja barreled, W-W brass, Forester Neck turned, RL-22 Alliant powdered, Federal primered 270 Win with the same load as above barked with much authority. Again after a dumb look from the shooter and reacquisition of the target, yep, there he was. Standing on all 4s as motionless as the local diner.
While looks were being exchanged the subject of the hunt decided to mosey off to the left with his neck and head just above the 36" sage brush. Surenough a huge muley! Wudda had to buy an additional freezer.
The shooter then commented that while all of this was going on the scope was pretty blurry. The giant rack was hard to see and the body was fuzzy. I scooted over to where the rifle was set up to look for my self.
Sure enough things were very fuzzy. Seems as though in the excitement of seeing the deer coming he set up with about 5 feet of scrub brush about 5 feet in front of the muzzle.
And the whole time I was blaming it on the mountains to the rear causing the uklideen thing to vary while neither the scope nor target had moved. Or maybe it is that this Euclides fella excaped from under the afgan is hiding out in Montplier, Idaho.
How do I factor in the attraction between two bodies of mass thing. I tried one of those conundrum thingers but that didn't work either.
When does the money from Mauser, Fajen, Nikon, Winchester, Forester, Hornady, Alliant, Federal, SWFA and Lilja start rolling in?????
