I did five shot groups at every 6 moa up to 30. Five feet of shootable target on a six foot tall 16 inch sonotube. It tracks just under 13inches every 6 moa at 200 yards. All the way up and all the way back down. It's not a problem with the scope.
Well. I sent the scope back to vortex. They say there's nothing wrong with it. They gave me some pointers on stuff I was already doing. So Scopes back on and 0ed at 200 again. Went back out to the same spot under considerably different temperature conditions but with no wind. I also have a...
Actually. You may be right. I just did the math and if you count the amount of clicks and convert to mrads instead of moa it comes out to what I'm actually hitting with. Moa is 1/4 per click and mrad is .1 per click. So I may have a mrad scope with moa turrets. Damnit vortex!
Check this out. I just punched in all my numbers using 4dof and in hornadys bc calculator. The 4dof is saying 16.8 and the bc calculator is saying 13.75. Absolutely no different numbers. ????? What is 4dof adding in that isn't in the bc calculator?
That's what I was coming up with too. Even with the long barrel and big precision armament muzzle brake it shouldn't change anything since we know what the velocity is through the chronograph. It will be a bummer if it's the scope. That thing was expensive and is practically new.
I went through all the inputs and used the kestrel my cousin has. This brought the app down to 17.01. Still no where close.
As for the bullets. I figure since im shooting a 0.3 inch at 200 yards with 178 gr eldx and a 0.5 with the 200gr eldx they should be more than accurate enough for 900. I...
