after getting frustrated with the heavy mirage that we had last Saturday. I have been trying to get some information on how to deal with it and came across a couple of interesting articles. and if anyone has information that would help me and others please share I would greatly appreciate it. http://loadoutroom.com/12938/snipers-mirage-tip-week/
Brett, lots of interesting information in the article. Thanks for publishing. Mirage deals me a fit. Dialing the scope magnification down until the picture stabilizes and clears up is the only thing that I have found to help. Something that I have noticed many times while shooting in a heavy mirage, the group will look like a 12 gauge buckshot pattern with no two bullets in the same area. Congrats on the good shooting last weekend. WWE
My group at 500 was about 2″ high and on steel it was centered. I have been wondering if the small change in angle from the steel plate up to the paper target would cause group to be high. Most likely not, I’m now thinking it was mirage which makes sense. The mirage was moving upward and slightly left-right when I shot. The center of the target was not where it appeared to be!
