Getting to 500m
I have a Sako L691 in 25-06 AI topped with a S&B Precision Hunter 2.5-10 X 56, all up with bipod it ways 14lbs.
I have been playing around with Point Blank and made up a bit of a range card, I am running 85gn BT's at 3600fps and the software was spot on at 250m (6 clicks up from 100m zero),and it says I will have to go up roughly 33 clicks for a 500m zero does this estimate sound right?
Tha temperature I shot at 250m with was 41'C which is filthy hot, took forever to cool down between shots, how much would high temps like this of effected accuracy?
I mainly shoot varmints to 300m so a 500m shot is new to me.
BTW, whats a good target for shooting 500m? cross, square ect?
Any input is appreciated
