Steve, I was thinking today about some of the things that we witnessed yesterday. A 1 mile shot is unchartered waters for all of us and I am convinced that we do not have a clue as to the effects of conditions over that distance. I once had a good shooter suggest to me that a 2″ group at 500 yards would equate to an 8″ group at 1000 yards. This is opinion not science of course, but if it is anywhere close, can you imagine the factors that would apply to a 1 mile shot? Another thing that we seemed to notice was that the bullet seemed to track higher later in the morning. I was wondering if that could have anything to do with the temperature rising throughout the morning and the air getting thinner. Anyone out there have any thoughts on this? WWE
