I know what you mean about the ground swells and ranging. If the animal will allow time wise, it is good to double check with the ranging reticle.
That is a good idea about checking with the reticle, but my reticle ranging skills at 600 yards, are not good enough to determine a 35 yard difference @ 600 yards.
My shots were 6" low each time which is right at 1MOA difference or right at 35 yards with my drops.

What I like about McRee's stock is that it is so versatile. I change forend out easily and can got to a 3" wide forend and a comp grip with bag bar in a matter of minutes for LR pd's or a 1K match. Since it is all aluminum I don't worry about POI changes and it is really tough to boot. Also I can use any grip that is made for the AR platform as well.
Simple, strong, and versatile. Keeps POI the same when taking it off and on as well.

Pic of the same rig set-up for BR or pd shooting. Not the best group in the world at 500 yards, but still pleased. I won the shoot-off in those conditions with this group.

Thanks!
Yes, those are horns. It is called an "uncommon doe." I was intentionally hunting for a horned doe so as to make doe hunting a little more challenging.

Re: Couple of Critters beyond 400 yards

Ernie, did you range (laser I assume) the animal wrong because of the ground swells or was the POI just different?

Re: Couple of Critters beyond 400 yards

Nice story and pic Ernie!
I sure do like the stock but how is it in cold weather, I would think your hands would get cold holding onto metal? I guess you could have Erik carry it ;-)
Out west wouldn't be as much an issue as it's in a pack but here in WI i usually carry it by hand.
I know I didn't like having a metal riser on my bow.
I was looking at weather reports and looks like I better take my snowshoes for the hunt in two weeks.

It was my error. I saw the swell, but I did not think it was enough to catch on the beam-I was wrong. This issue, has helped remind me that the little things can make a big difference.
When shooting steel, I have lasered the ground in front of it accidentally, but I really didn't think this was enough to make a difference this time.
