    CDS turret help

    Looking at a CDS on my Kimber 308 - 600y max.

    I hunt (or once did) South Island river flats to tops.

    What is best alt/temp settings, and distance increments to go for?

    Cheers!

    If you like maths see if Leupold can uuse smoot's as the distance unit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoot
    If you can't beat them, beat them.
    They will be expecting you to join them, so you'll have the element of surprise.

    I know of a forum member who dials elevation in subway footlong units

    Mind you it was for a long range shot using a 45/70, but worked impressively well
