I have heard similar stories, one guy told after 400 yards you just crack light on the back and the hold increases as the yardage does. Some years later we were shooting ground hogs 400 yards in with a 22-250 REM 700 heavy barrel 55 grain Federal factory rounds . Clear mostly windless day and we killed quite a few and miss as many as we killed. I heard later we were slaying them at 650 yards!Have to comment again! People who know that I shoot LR competively have commented on how good they are at LR shooting. Something like "I shot my bull elk at 900 something yards with a one shot kill!" Asking what they were using they'd say something like a 30-30. Wow, how did you make that shot? "Just held slightly above his back and shot."
Well, I know my competition 308 has 24 ft of drop at 1000 yards. His scope must have been way off!
