Great article. I agree with you on African game. When I was there had a similar experience with a black wildebeest. I hit him at about 450 yd a bit far back (later to find out I nailed the liver dead on) with a 220 gr out of a 300 WIN Mag. He too ran back into the heard and we ended up chasing them for about 3 miles and 4 hours before I hit him again right behind the shoulder which took out his leg but he he kept on until a 250 yd heart shot.

One thing to note about shooting rocks.... is that when in Africa I found that all the long range shooting created a mental block at close animals and I actually shot over a Kudu that was about 60 yds out.

Since then I have varied my shooting between long and short to keep my mind sharp in identifying distance changes and remind me that sometime you get lucky and an animal just walks out in front of you.

Great article. Shallow wind angles and complex terrain are beyond tricky despite the lr marketing

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
