That chart that Greyfox posted is a great help in trying to understand the AMOUNT OF LEAD vs the coyote's speed , along with the bullet's speed. Even if this Guy is off a little bit, it still has some solid information to work with. We all have a choice to believe fact or fiction. Sometimes opinions end up combining them both together, but there must be more truth and facts when mathimatical numbers show up better than just opinions that are without proof.
If you have sound reasonable data or experience for how much to lead running targets... I'm all in.
I appreciate your post.
Do you have anymore information on how to lead targets or tip and tricks for practicing running shots....?
Obviously you have not read any of the previous threads . The trouble with learners is they are not capable of recognising good advice straight away .
I was a specialist moving target shooter in the military a trained sniper and a combat infantry soldier yes it was a long time ago but i can still do it all . I spent many days of my life practising shooting moving targets from the ground and from choppers but , hey !! " what the hell would I know " . My last post was about a poster accepting what is on a web site as "GOSPEL" but saying what is in this thread is just " OPINION " Weird.
However I am done with this thread as I don't feel like helping anymore because it is unappreciated .
