Re: New Guy Questions

I hope this will help. That scope operates in MOA and 0.250 moa per click; each line is equal to 1 moa. 4 large lines, as stated above, equals 8 moa.

    With this load zero'd @ 250 yds, your drop in inches to 600 yds will be 50 inches give or take depending on your sight height, temp etc. This works out to 8 MOA (7.96). On the NP-R1 reticle this would be the 4th large cross hatch. Maybe this is what it means?

    Eaglet, how do you get those LB screen shots up? I got the exact same thing you did but could not get it posted up through photobucket.
    The OP states he's making hits on target when he is holding on the 8th large bar which should put him @ 16MOA and he is having to double his correction on the turrets also which means its not just a reticle hold issue.
    Everyone is coming up with the same correction with different software so it seems there it may not be software inputs that are to blame, leaving what? Wrong range?

    I believe he said "8th bar", not "large bar". And he also said....

    ...or hold on (even bar) Four ...
    which makes me think that "even bar" means the large bar, which would correspond to the correct 8 MOA.

    bigngreen, try using www.tinypic.com

    Once you have on the computer screen what you want, hit the PrtScrn button on your keyboard, paste it on you Paint application from windows, crop it to your specs, save it and then in the above link hit the "Browse..." button, look for the file in your computer, click OK and in tinypic.com click "UPLOAD NOW", in the page the appears click on the second yellow line it will high light and also will automatically copy the content into the clipboard. Go to the screen where you post in longrangehunting and just do Ctrl and "v" on you keyboard and it will paste it there... when you preview you should be able to see it.

    Re: New Guy Questions

    The 8th bar and the 4th large bar are the same bar so he would have the same POI thus he would not hit steel on the 8th bar either, unless he was using 4th large and 8th large, in his second post he says he's using the 2MOA bars. His table being 33 IPHY is of by 50% ish so there is one clue to bad software input issue. Or am I confusing myself?
