Thread: Extreme angle shooting

    Default Extreme angle shooting

    Yesterday me and TRGR went out to do a little extreme angle shooting and some long range shooting too! Longest shots taken yesterday was at a 24" rock 1603 yards away on the other side of a mountain BUT I didnt take a pic of it, kinda easy to hit that rock after practicing 2100yards 1600yards looks like a chip shot.lol I also FORGOT my Swaro Rangefinder but I had my Lica and TRGR had his Newcon, the Lica was shooting 1200yards everytime in bright light yesterday and TRGR Newcon was hitting right at 2000yards, I have to take that new toy of mine out and see what it will do or not do, will be the deciding factor if I send it back or not, the Swaro is alot heavier than the Lica and looks to have about the same glass HOPEFULLY itll range allot further than the Lica and if it doesnt down the road it will go!

    Heres a few pics of yesterdays adventure, last pic is a coyote at 15 yards

    Very nice, Chris!!

    Do you use equipment to calculate the shot considering the degree of angle and the horizontal distance, or do you just guess at the horizontal distance then plug in the numbers into your program?

    I like the Leica for the same reason; very light and very compact. It's perfect to stick in a shirt or coat pocket when bowhunting.

    Great pics Smokin! Some questions, did you smoke the yote? and how about some insite on the extreme angles. Did the exbal do ok for first round hits? How much did it change things? See any Elk??

    JB, we adjust for everything, you have to to be a good LR shooter!

    Broz, Yote still lives, if he would of been 1000yards away we would of smoked him, but at 15 yards Not much fun, PLUS he was on the Res.... LMAO

    Angle shooting wasnt any big deal, imput the degree and adjust for it, pull the trigger and white dust flys off the rock!!! LOL

    I remember shooting a rock at 987yards with a XX degree incline (I can remember) and it was like shooting a rock with no incline at 914yards,,,,, TRGR also showed me the formula to calculate it out, which was cool.

    All in all a good day shooting rocks at different distances and different angles, gearing up for hunting season and working all the bugs out. NO ELK were seen!

    It's about time you get a little dirt on that four wheeler Smokin
    Fantastic photos.
    I'd rather make a slow hit than a fast miss!

    Smokin, that little camera takes pretty good pics,glad to see it works lefthanded. I still have to try my SDcard and see if mine will download.
    Did you check your GPS to see what our max elevation was? My watch showed 9700. That must have been on top of Whiterock.

    On the angles, at Whiterock I think it was 30 degrees. South of Badger cabin I think it was 15 degrees.
