First to all who attended, thanks, a great group of guys to work with and it made my job much easier. I had a few notes to pass along and I am sure some others will have comments from the class as well. Equipment everyone was pretty squared away, the 700 dominated of course with a lone Nesika Bay. Nightforce & Leupold had an even split of the class. There was a good varity of spotting scopes to look through and compare as well as range finders, but the Swarovski was the dominate LRF. Spotter / shooter comunications , most were getting tuned into calling corrections or dope in MOA as opposed to you were a foot and a half high. The class as a whole picked this right up. Spotting distant hits/misses with binoculars vs spotting scopes out to 500-600 yds most did pretty well with the binos but I watched the wrong dope called several times beyond those distances with binos if your going to go long you need a spotting scope. The importance of hig BC vs High velocity the up side to shooting in crappy conditions is that it makes people learn firsthand what really works. The high BC guys had a much easier time connecting in the wind even though they needed more elevation, their mechanical advantage was where it was important in windage. Where to stop shots out to 500 where high % shots for the group. The high BC guys were probably pushing 600 for high %. No one myself included was shooting high % at 800 and beyond. I am sure it was a real eye opener for some. Comments like, " When you said it was all about the wind you were not kidding" were pretty common. Hunting site selection when given a choise you can do yourself a big favor by picking a zone and direction that will allow you to work the wind. Shooting across multiple draws and ridges that run different directions gives you lifts, down drafts, left, right, and calm all at the same time. Some locations are better suited for LRH than others. All in all, it was a great class and a very enjoyable way to work over the weekend. I look foreward to hearing how the guys do this fall.
