So what do you do when a rabbit isn't conveniently sitting at your zero range? Guess the hold over?

Even a blind squirrel finds the odd nut. :rolleyes:

Buy your self a good ballistics program and you will have all the data you need!!
Then buy a good chronograph and double check the data!!

Nice to see the same old bull being talked, Dial in, range chart, clicks up clicks down, while your pissing about clicking up and down I put scope on rabbit pull triger and kill



And thats what I do out to about 65m-75m as the scope is zeroed @50m/55y. But for the longer shots where you will have a little more of time I will range the target and dial in the value. OR as I now have the drop in inches from the chart I will hold over the correct amount of inches. Easy peasy......................... :D
