Re: Got my 1000 + Yard Yote!!!

That is just outstanding, Broz! The world of flat land, coyote sized RF's must be pretty small. Where did you get your PLRF? Tremendous shot. Hope to get to that place some day!

    Re: Got my 1000 + Yard Yote!!!

    Thank You all for the kind words. As I have progressed and learned here on this site the last few years the importance of a RF with a small powerful beam has become a must have to me. I was lucky enough to get a chance to buy a used PLRF10 and I am so glad I jumped on it. I was able to range this yote 3 consecutive times with 3 distances with in 1 yard. The most important thing to me about a RF these days is the beam divergence. One of the Rf's with a larger beam would not have pulled this off, especially over snow with full sun.

    B&G, note on that screen pic the + and - above and below the distance and the wind value. I didn't have to use it but if the yote was moving farther or nearer or if I wanted to add or subtract wind all I had to do was hit the respective + or - and it corrects the dope automatically ..and fast! And get this, If you go up in range by hitting the plus it jumps to the yardage it takes for another .25 moa. For example, from 1008 the next click was 1013 and .25 moa more up. So you dont have to sit there and keep clicking the up in one yard increments. Pretty cool! And yes, the latest free update for shooter gives you the option to use the U / D and L / R for your corrections. That makes the correction in windage a no brainer as the L / R is exactly what I see when I grab the turret knob on my scope.

    As for a 1200 yard yote.... I am a lookin...

    I wish I was up for a phone update or had the coin right now to get into Shooter and give it a try, my wife caught me eyeballing a Droid on the web site and I got told in no uncertain terms she gets the next new phone
    You'll have to give me a walk through on Shooter at one of the shoots!! Oh, and you better keep your eye on that Vectronix!!

    Jett, I started with a chronoed velocity and then fine tuned it to match the drops as I don't trust my cheap chrono. Or hardly any of them for that matter. I used the option to pull bullet data for the 210 Berger VLD from the bullet library in the shooters program. I chose the data labled (Litz) as Bryan was instrumental with data for this program.

    Jeff: I have not used my program since the update. I usually use altitude and slp. You have had good luck w/ station pressure? It appears that you just whacked a yote at a grand so it obviously is adequate. I thought alt and slp would be closer. ps.. Love the Droid, 49 bucks seems like stealing
