    Cronograph's ??

    PORWATH, by now you must realize that I can get it done under all sorts of conditions and environments with my rig and data. I do not care what the velocity is, only that the numbers I use produces repeatable predictable drops. YOU get this yet? Who gives a crap about the stupid...

    Rifle + scope for 1K, is it possible?

    I am apparently confused. Are we talking 1k rifle or just 500 yard dear? edit never mind I see. What range are you hoping to engage? General purpose is too easy for a thousand bucks.

    Rifle + scope for 1K, is it possible?

    Without the extra window dressing or peripheral equipment, it can be done but just barely, not totally ideally but a capable rig none the less. If it were me: savage accutrigger in preferred long action caliber $500-, a fixed power swfa 12x42 mil/mil scope $320-, a decent base, rings and a...

    Small Caliber Long Range Questions

    While the 243 is not known for being fur friendly I bet you could find a fur friendlier bullet for it. I would look into that if I where in your shoes. I would bet 9 outa ten varmint hunters carrying a 223 now are doing so for the same reason. I think my next on is going to be a 6br just to see...

    Bolt action rifles and cheek weld

If you made one of wood to match your stock...

    Cronograph's ??

    Once I have my base line established, I shoot all over with positive results. ES is obvious at distance. Groups fired repetitively can eliminate shooter error and needs done anyway to develop a load, test it's consistency and stay in practice. Agree that not all software is equal and the bc...

    Cronograph's ??

    It just occurred to me that perhaps my system was not elaborated on adequately. I am using ballistic software, I am dependent on pre established bc numbers just like everyone else. I am not running on just drops and expecting that to work in a variety of conditions. I am just using known...

    Cronograph's ??

    I was not saying you had said anything about only shooting close range, I was just saying. Now for the rest, You are assuming my bc is off......ok I have bean trusting Brian's data on that and have no reason to doubt it or method to research it beyond what he has done, since apparently you do...
