Ninja's love a Sunday roast - can't miss that can we?
I did some bracketing in the garden yesterday on k/z sizes 15,20,25,30&40mm but I'm thinking I should do 35mm too. Some of the differences are so minute it seems impossible to tell between 35 & 40yrds (25mm k/z reading 0.6mildot for both!). Scope is on 7x mag & paralax set to 25yrs. I guess I need to read blur when judging these further distance?
I haven't done any bracketing for the target sizes yet I'll try to do that today. As these are much bigger I'm hoping it will give greater differences on the mildots. I'll also try side by side readings for a half md hawke scope to see if that helps reading.
Great article but the download link for the targets isn't working for me. Are you still able to download the targets ?
There's a copy of the useful HFT distances here : > CLICK <
As I started to download the computer flagged up it already had an file of that name, I knew I had them somewhere
great read thanks for putting these various bits together!
If trying to bracket kill zones 7 magnification is too low you need at least 10 magnification to see any small differences. And even at that not too easy but it is a tool to have in your ranging box.
Also use blurr can be your friend too if you spend time with your scope.
Also know the course setters rules for what kill zone size can go at what distance you be surprised how many poeple shoot HFT and don't know the rules.
Bracket targets most targets have something in common no matter the face plate.
Also improving your range judgment with your eyes
All of the above takes time so no quick fixes here
Put in the practice with some knowledge and scores will get better
Also positionals need practice if you want to improve scores too.
Any thing earlier. Gotta be a cataninjapillar.
Great article Brian- just started and I know exactly what you mean regarding the set up, just made that mistake at Fort last week, but we live and learn.
Useful link to Anston FT cheers.
Cracking info on there
great read thank you
