Long Range Shooting
Long range shooting, teenage sniper kid almost nails propane tank 1,245 yards - We graze it about 4 times but never enough to blow it up. VERY long shot however.
Long range hunting is not as difficult as you might think. A couple of keys to nailing a target at a very long range are #1 you must have a scope with a Minute Of Angle elevation adjustment and a Minute of Angle wind correction.
Most high end scopes have a MOA adjustment. The scope we use in this video is simply a Bushnell Elite. I think it has 45 minute of angle.
We use a program called Exbal that we have installed on a handheld device so we can use it in the field. We also have a handheld weather station.
We use a Lieca 1200 range finder and we just plug in the data which includes Altitude, Temperature, Humidity, and Barometric pressure.
The device already has all of the ballistic information we inputed from our loads and after we range a 1,245 yard long range shot the computer spits out a setting for wind and elevation.
In this case if I remember correctly we had a 37.50 minute of angle adjustment.
Don't get me wrong long range shooting requires practice. My son and I are out shotting long range at least twice a week or more during hunting season.
Good luck with your long range shooting and if you have any questions or coments please feel free to leave a comment.
