No I have never shot benchrest. I shoot service rifle and long range steel targets with a bolt gun.
I am just a guy who practices sound marksmanship and can take my custom .260remington and hit anything I want out to about 1100yds, with or without wind.
Unknown Distace shooting is what I mostly do...in about 3-4 minutes I can quite easily rangefind 6 different (MOA) targets at various distances between say... 320 to 900yds using my (Leupold Mk4 M2), figure the dope for my calculated distance by using my written data book, read the wind and hold for each shot and achieve a first round hit. There is absolutely without a doubt no need for those dumb gizmo levels. I purposfully have canted my rifle at 900yds and still made the same hit I did a few seconds earlier when the rifle was not canted. Explain that?
