Bighorn through NF 5.5x56 at 1670 yards

The deer hunting was slow but we saw a ton of bighorn sheep. This guy was ranged at 1670 yards. This is hand held through my NF 5.5-22x56 at 22x. He posed standing broadside several times while looking through the spotting scope but not for a picture. He's just over 3/4 curl and there was a couple of smaller rams in this bunch along with 14 ewes. We saw a couple of bigger rams in a different canyon but no pics of them.

    ss7mm,

    I have never tried to take a picture through the rifle scope like that. I think I will be trying pretty soon, it's kind of cool.

    Do you agree that the white spot to the right of center at the first hash mark on the scope is at 5'10" from center of the crossed hair?

    91.6 inches ?

    edge.

    5.24 x 1. 047 x 16.7 = 91.6
    assuming the reticle ranges at 22x and we are at 22x and they are 5 moa hash marks???

    Of course I make 5 mistakes before I even get out of bed

    If we consider the "white speck" to be right on the 5 moa horizontal hash mark, then wouldn't it be 16.7 x 1.047 x 5 = 87.42"
