    Just got back from Taupo was a pretty wet day,was good in the running boar range as its covered but only goes to 50mtrs, now my question is:
    If I get say 1/4inch high at 50mtrs what will it b at 100,200,300?
    I can't b too far off because I was putting holes in the bottom of a small V can at 50mtrs haha bit of fun before coming home

    Rough maths would say 1/2 at 1oo m etc but you really need to shoot at that range.

    Next time you come down keep driving 30-40 mins out of town towards Napier. There's plenty of spots to stretch your legs

    The answer to that will depend on a lot of factors such as the range distance the rifle is zeroed at, the BC of the projectile, the speed it is travelling, etc. There are plenty of gurus on here (I am not one of them) so give them the data and they will have a ball telling you.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Using the calculater in this link Handloads.Com Ballistic Calculator it puts you zeroed at 150 and 6inch low at 300. That was just with rough figures .
    Try it , its the easiest one too use but don't forget too calculate BC and scope height.

    You may have to wait until after calving as that is full swing now on most farms.
    RULE 4: IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET BEYOND ALL DOUBT


    To be a Human is to be an Alien, ask the animals, We invade this world and we are killing it, we are destroying the earth and nobody gives a fuck except for the animals
