    my mate might have been slightly under powered with the thing. 288m and 338 edge just did the trick.

    That fork looks like an old eelers spear we have one similar if the boys haven't lost it.

    Not yet, but soon. Crickets seen to have disappeared, so these fellas might start being tasty again. Worth a crack.

    also ran the elevation dial up 2 turns (30MOA) to check click value . . all good.

    200yrd group was under .75inch - 100yrd while only 2 shots were still well under .5inch - its a shooter

    with just enough time to shoot a couple of rabbits at 187 - 200yds before the light went

    Does being half an inch high mean that you aim half an inch lower than what you want to hit if it's at 100 meters away?

    the 100yrd square is 1 inch ( 25mm ) 200yrd ( 50mm )

    it means i can be lazy and not dial in any elevation to well past 200yrds with a center mass shot ( i dont do head shots ) on a rabbit with the .204 making a quick shot possable . . . in contrast to when i use say .22 subs i may need 130+ clicks of elevation which all takes time, range, firing solution, setup the shot . . and the rabbit has moved, start the process again . . maybe not get a shot at all . . also rabbit numbers are down this time of year so its nail them quick and back to the subs next spring . . . ya gotta love the variety of shooting styles, i do anyway
