    I pretty much had to shoot a sighter every time for wind. I would try to judge the wind but there is just so much that happens in that time between you and the target. At 1500 it was much much easier. But still, if your .2 or .3 mils off, you miss the plate even.

    Here is the rifle right now. Put the TB ultra 7 on it instead. And just got the new TBAC bipod (finally). The other pic is me standing at 1.5 miles looking back at the truck. Its the tiny black dot at the arrow. The larger black thing to the left of the arrow is a grain silo.

    Thanks. It was in Kansas. Right at the CO,KS boarder. About 4 hours from my house. Left at 4 am. Arrived at 8. Out at range til 9pm about. Lets just say I got a little too much sun!

    Another mention... we were using Magnetospeed LED target indicators. So when you hit the plate it flashes a strip of bright Red LEDs you can see it through the scopes and spotters. (Using Swaro and Hensoldt)

    Sighter for each shot, I would think so! The God of Wind hisself could not call it at that distance if there was a flag every 100yds.

    Very interesting stuff, thanks for sharing.

    We would shoot about 5-7 rounds at a time in this PRC before we would let it cool down. First round typically I would hold much less wind then I was at the time before. We had a general idea at 1500 that it was around 1 mil, so we started there. Sometimes it hit and sometimes not even close. So pretty much without wind flags as you just mentioned it's a crap shoot. The ground wind could be 10mph and 30 where the bullets flying. Then it would be 30-45 minutes before we would shoot again sometimes and conditions changed big time. Part of the fun and I can say it's not easy. That's for sure.

    5.6-3.2 = 2.4 mils difference.

    I know absolutely nothing about the s stuff. What does 6.5prc do that 6.5cm doesn’t?

    That is a wicked sweet rifle. TB ultra doesn’t exactly suck either. We’re you shooting slightly downhill, to get a good view. Or were you shooting off that platform ?

    Thanks PB. It was flat.. maybe slightly down to 1k. Then went uphill ever so slightly to the 1500, 1760, 2k and the 2560. Picture is a little deceiving going back to the truck. Was shooting off a bench with stools. I'll be putting my 338 Ultra on this rifle and then using the TBu7 on the other 300prc.
