    I googled this real quick so I wouldn't have to type a lot. Haven't read all of it. But, it seems to cover most everything you might want to know.

    Very impressive. I still struggle at 300 yards, on a windless day.

    You are fortunate to have the opportunity for such experimenting while you are young, although I don't discount the likelihood that hard work and determination got you to where you are at, and provided your opportunities. :up:

    You are correct. I truly am fortunate to have had people and opportunities that helped get me where I am. It was not done on my own.

    100yrd Zero
    21.5 Mils Elevation Hold for 1,400 yards.

    One mil is 3.6" @ 100 yards. By my math, 21.5 mils at 1,400 yards is 3.6x14x21.5, which is 1,083.6 inches. That's 90.3 feet, or 30 yards, or roughly the effective range of the 270 Winchester. You had to hold 90 feet over to hit the target? Damn.

    I know from the Field Artillery there is 6283 mil-radians in a circle rounded to 6400...............17.78 mils = 1 degree

    Here, give yersef a read up if so inclined................

    Thanks for your answer
    I have 12 power available.
    I need 6.2 mil to get me to 750 and 10 mil to get to 1000m with a 140gr 6.5 amax leaving at 2745fps
    I have only shot this far although the farmers place where I have my range would easily go to the 14-1500m and more if I shifted location
    My biggest problem is not seeing that far nor running out of elevation with the double turn PM11 it is crossing the sound barrier at by my calculation a couple of hundred meters short of 1400m and how that would effect my bullet flight.
    Though if I went to yards I it would probably be right on the 1400yard mark
    I could always try and find another node with a little higher speed as there is room in the case,
    Currently using Vihtavuori N560, I could try Adi 2209/ H4895 and see what happens
    You post has inspired me. I shall give it a crack.

    Try some 123 Amax or ELD. You'll get more zoom out of a lighter pill and it may stretch the transonic zone a bit farther for your application.

    Apparently, the .308 bullet is still spinning at 300 yards. I would not have even been sure of that.

    OK, 93 feet of drop - how many feet of windage?

    Roughly 10-20 feet of wind age hold.

    DA-YUM!

    I'd need the Hubble to be able to even SEE that target!
