    Well I have decided to share the good and the bad with you all that way when I do really good maybe you fellas will believe me :)

    This morning I headed out to shoot my first cold bore shot at LR . I set one target out at 744 yrds and then another at 812 yrds. I had recently shot a pretty nice group at 752 and I felt pretty confident this morning but boy did I get humbled big time in a hurry !. I didn't allow for any wind as their was some fog and it didn't look like their was any so I don't know if the wind got me or I entered something wrong into my pc . Below is the data that I entered , maybe some of you could plug it into your NF program to see if it matches .

    Note: I did not hit anywhere on the targets(only one shot at each target) They are atleast 20 X 24 something is bad wrong . (The cross hairs were on the x mark when the gun went off)

    Data

    Temp 75 Altitude set at 0 Calculated standard pressure unchecked.

    Baro 28.78

    R.H 67.2

    812 Yards called for 18.25 MOA

    744 Yards called for 16.50 MOA

    I have no ideah as to what went wrong . Any ideas ?

    Thanks ,
    BigBuck

    All of the Gizmos in the world do not help if you are not able to access and correct for condition. PM me and I will email you comprehensive information on how to do it. Then you need to practice.

    This is what really separates the big boys from the wanna be's.
