Bumping this thread.
I have been doing some cold-bore mapping.
I place 2 targets at 500 yards.
I warm up by firing other rifle first....and dry fire test rifle at least 10 times to get settled.
I fire single shot at Target 1( cold bore)
I then fire 3 at Target 2.
I haven't finished testing...
Resurrecting this thread...
Has anyone had to rework a load switching from "old" 7mm 168 VLDs to the new ones with revised b.c?
I have 200 of old style...just got a new order and they came in yellow box and revised b.c
I will try but do not think it will work...
The first step to setting up scope is to zero it at 100 yards.
Chronograph the load.
Use a ballistic table or calculator and find your drop #(in inches) and enter B.C, drop # into scope.
Next step would be to shoot at 600-700 yards and...
It's not about getting to 750 yards.
You need the drop # for 750 yards to program the laser rangefinder to calculate and plot the aiming for.
If you cartridge has more than 230" of drop at 750 yards then you cannot program the # 200116 model.
The #200119 (newest model) has option for...
Honestly I bought it used for a good price just wanted to try it and see.
Not sure IF I would ever buy updated model.
Poor design because it should be like a G7 rangefinder where you plot all the variables.
There's much more to long range than just b.c and bullet drop @ 750 yards?
This is quote off Burris website...
The Eliminator 4-16x50 (Model #200119) has enhanced ballistic software that makes it a triple threat in the woods. Not only will it work for centerfire cartridges, but will now work on most rimfire, muzzleloader and slug guns as well.
I was also mistaken as...
Ya not sure
The way their computer works it says you need a 750 yard drop #.
Trouble is it maxed out at 260 inches.
I don't think it will work.
But I will contact Burris tommorow.
It will still range the target but I will have to make a drop chart and use dots accordingly.
I can only...
I am wanting to use the bullet drop feature to have 100 yard zero and be able to shoot out to 300 yards (maybe 350).
My calculated drop @ 750 yards is 490 inches.
So when I go to program the scope the bullet drop number maxed out @ 260 inches of drop.
Anyone have any ideas how I can trick...
I was lucky enough to pick up a Redding 7mm comp full set years ago on eBay for dirt cheap.
I just ordered a VLD stem(but not sure if even required.)
I plan on testing a few of the sizing dies to see which produces least runout.
I am leaning toward Lee collet and bumping shoulder back with...
