    Well all I have done in the past is pick a distance and walk the rounds out until I hit my target, then shoot at that distance. It wastes time and ammo and does little for me when I go to hunt (Coyote etc) I want to get better at firing one shot and getting the effect on target that I want. meaning adjusting for elevation and compensating for wind

    I typically shoot out at davenport or mica, I dont really like mica because the guy that runs it always asks to shoot my 1911 and asks me all these questions about it. which isnt a problem but he always asks about it even though hes seen it before.

    I hunt out near davenport and up in colville nat forest

    Welcome madcow,

    If you plan on shooting one load out of your rifle at 800 yards or less, then a ballistic type reticle may work for you. There are quite a few to chose from but theres only 2 or 3 that work well enough to consider in my mind.
    You can get a scope that allows you to dial in and they can be more precise and versatile but generally run slower, atleast if I'm behind the trigger.
    I believe that first and formost is an accurate rifle which I'm sure you already knew.
