Re: 557-yd. AR-15 Coyote

steve, i would assume the dots are set up for that specific cartridge/mv? what spacing are they? are the wind dots a specific distance?

Re: 557-yd. AR-15 Coyote

Congratulations!!!!

Thats what long range hunting is all about! Coyote hunting really makes a "sniper" out of us, because they're smart enough to usually only give us one shot. Sometimes too smart for even one good shot. That's definately long range considering the .223 caliber and AR rifle.

What kind of groups do you get at 200 or 300 yds w/ your gun?

No it's not a trajectory-specific BDC reticle. It's a 3 MOA vertical system and 4 MOA windage.
Here's the dope for the 65 SGK @ 3150 mv using that reticle and 10 mph windage calcs.--

Re: 557-yd. AR-15 Coyote

Very nice for a 'rifle' mister reticle ;-))) That's the only one I would use when not handgunning. It's perfect for predators.
Did you use a call or el natural like you did the nite we headed back to camp in Casper in the dark and they were singing to us? You sure are muliti talented !
