    Is this a bad time to insert an inside joke about dispatcher math?

    To sell you more on the NX8... Mine is on a 16" SR15, and I love it. Eyebox was no issue at 1x, glass looked great at 600yds.

    I was getting hits at 550yds, but 600 eluded me. The wind was very high. Still, it's an awesome scope. it'll be nice on a SBR too.
    It is from the construction of underground FEMA camps. I can't say more because there a guy parked in front of house in an AMC Pacer. He is acting like he talking on the phone, but I know better.

    I have to sign off now & put my laptop in the microwave.

    Wind call is going to be more of a limiting factor than distance past 500 yards.

    I was running my NX8 on my SR15 this AM, I don't mind holding over to 300 yards, then I like to dial, its much easier for me. To each his own. I'd put the NX8 on a lot more guns if it were not for the $$$$.

    Your 11.5 should do just fine. We run our 11.5's out to distance and its fine.

    Ironman's DOPE looks dead on from my experience.

    2.8 mil @ 400 yds

    Here's my dope for BHA 77gr TMK, 16" barrel, ~2630fps. This was trued on plates from 4" to 12" in 50yd increments.
