Re: 655 Yard buck with MCR 338-408 Chey-Tac

Nice video and good shooting
I noticed that the shooter was shooting down hill but I couldn't tell if the rifle had a cosin indicator? How did you figure for the angle?

Thanks
Bigbuck

Re: 655 Yard buck with MCR 338-408 Chey-Tac

bigbuck, im not answering for kevin as he's quite capable of doing that for himself. fact is i doubt he even owns an indicator.
this is not a gadget oriented area. ive never seen a cousine indicator or a weather station used here. thats not to say those things are unimportant.
we rarly hunt alone here, a spotter is almost a must. if you noticed he asked the shooter several times if he was ready. that so he could be ready to call the shot. dont blink or you missed it. a more experienced shooter would know to do that.
at that distance gravity dosent play much of a part with guns like that.
our group has a chart for cousine made up years ago. we just guess the angle. cousine does play a major roll at the long distances.
im going to buy an indicator and attach it to my glasses using a small weaver base on the bracket. that way ill only need 1 regardless of which gun we use.

aside from good guns and glasses, kevins group is successful because of their basic ability. that includes packing back to some remote spots.

but he's not very good at 2000yd. bears in trees.

Re: 655 Yard buck with MCR 338-408 Chey-Tac

Yobuck's absolutely right. I've been long range hunting for 20 years now and we never needed a cosine indicator. We were shooting at about a 20 degree angle down hill. At that distance I just took 2 clicks off. Robert hit exactly where we had discussed to hold. I agree shooting uphill or downhill does have an effect but under 1000 yards and with enough experience you just know how much it will effect the impact.

As for the bears in the tree they were pushing the 2300-2500 yard mark, and I'm firing my spotters, they couldn't see a damn hit. I won't even mention the shots at 1500 they couldn't see
