Re: pd at 3260yds
i have the blue and white gun in the pics. two years ago i made shots over 1700yrds with the same 20x50 prem. boosted leupy. last year i shot one 2217yrds with a 12x42 nf, back down to about 30 power (mirage). this year i switched to a 10x60 march. you are right, the conditions have to be darn near perfect to see that far. when conditions were good i was up on 60 power for some shots. the wind does help to keep the mirage from getting too fat. as for the mount, i called elmer two years ago. he said he no longer made the mount. if i wanted one i would have to buy from someone who had one. i guy in minnasota. had one. (met him through vha mag) he sent me detailed pics of his, i thought of a simaler but simpler design with less moving parts and had a machinist buddy make two of them,one for each of the guns. if you are interested in it i can send pics and scaled drawing of it. the elev adjustment is .750" which works out to juat over 4200yrds. and windage is good for about 30 to 35 mile winds at same distance. i'm not sure about my eyes but jg and i were load testing today for the upcoming pa williamsport world open shoot on the 11th and 12th. at 7:30 this morning we could see 6mm holes at 1000 yrds on white paper with a swaro 60x spotter. at 10:00am you could only see the 30's. again in the right conditions you can see. happy shooting.
