Cool, very very cool!!

What version and power setting were you using on the NXS? Would you change anything about the scope if it were specifically for long range yotes (lets say 400-1000 yds)?

Congrats Jeff.

I have always used ststion pressure so I continued to do so. I didn't even look into other options as I remembered long ago that it was said station presure was they way to go. But maybe that has changed?? Can you tell me why Alt / slp could be better?

Thanks!

It was all the way up. It's a 5.5~22 NXS. I usually leave it up. A while back I took the 5.5~22 NXS off my 338 Lapua and changed it out for a 8~32 NXS. I shot my tightest group at 1000 yards with this scope right off the bat. But I lost 35 moa of dial up and at 32X target acqusition was a little bit of a challenge at times for me. Above all, I am a hunter and I was afraid this was going to bite me one day. So I changed it back to a 5.5~22 again. A 32X would have sure made the yote a bigger target at 1000 but it would hae been harder to get on him and the mirage also would have been worse. So to answer your question, I feel 400 t0 1000 you would be fine at 22 X on a yote. The image of the yote was big enough that I was able to pick my point of aim then move a little left for a last minute wind hold.

Hope this helps.

Jeff

I don't know why or if it would be better Jeff. I used it in Id for the first time and had some bugs to work out. Everyone else used exbal. Shawn dialed my dope on his exbal until I got things dialed in. It turned out that I didn't turn off the powder temp setting. When I got that turned off I was right w/ Shawn's exbal. I did use and have since used the alt slp.

Great shot! Does the PLRF10 give you the station pressure as one of its options?

No, I use a kestrel 2500 NV for that info. But anywhere close to home here I have shot so much I have the pressure memorized. The house and my range are at 25.63.
