Re: What does my Cooper need?

Yeah I know, I've watched alot of Sniper shows and have done some playing around with mil-dots myself. If I had the time and money, learning the things a sniper knows would be the first thing I do.

On a side note - Shooting Prairie dogs in the range of 200-800 yards is fun and is a learning experience aswell, This year I shot one after about 6-8 shots (AR-15 w/ Burris 8-32x50) that was all blurry in my scope and he was at the bottom of the vertical cross-hair, not really sure how far that would be tho, guessing 700yrds


At the link above, what is SP class up there in the RED records...
1/4MOA AR-15? Is it possible?

For me that would be a 1.4 mil hold or dial and a .4 mil windage, if I was elk hunting it would belike taking candy from a baby
