Thanks to Michael Claunch we are now closer to having something to shoot at all the way to 1000 yards. It has not rained in the last several days but the hill at Reese Bottom is still very wet[see the boots]. I took a few photos as always so click to enlarge. Weather permitting, we should be ready by the third Saturday in December. WWE
Looking forward to this 1000 yard stuff. Sent 10 rounds today in this 15 mph switching wind. It was difficult keeping the bullet on a 16″ wide metal plate. Was using 5 moa’s windage and the wind was not full value. Hope it is somewhat calm when we shoot!
Steve after reading your post got me to thinking I’ve never really used the Horizontal correction on my ballistic app. and as we embark into the world of 1K shooting I’m thinking I NEED TO. Just to see I punched in a 5 mph 90 deg. Cross wind (which an’t much LOL) based on my 107 @2700 I need to ADD 4.1 MOA windage for 1K correction WOW that’s a eye opener!
now here is the kicker if that 5 mph wind is @ 45 degs.(not 90) then I only need 2.8 MOA. now if that 5 mph 45 deg cross wind changes to 7 mph I now need 4 moa and if that 5 mph wind that changed to 7 mph now goes back to 90 degs I now need 5.7 MOA who said the wind is your friend
yep 1K going to be fun
