449yd coon.

While glassing with my Swaro 10*42 EL's, I noticed a coon working down the bean field. Ran inside and unlocked the safe.

Grabbed my GAP .223ai, Swaro EL's, Leica 1200, and my Iphone.

Went onto my Ballistic FTE app on my I-phone.

Ranged the coon at 449yds. Called for 6.28 moa of elevation on the Ballistic FTE app.

Dialed 6.25 moa of elevation on the NF. There was no wind, so I held directly on the coon.

Boom, and it went right down.
