    338LM ELR practice

    Kiwi not allowed to laugh of these puny mountains!

    Just doing some ELR shooting, no ballistic apps, and seeing what results all the position work at 100m has done.

    good stuff norway, i have been concentrating on 1250 with the trg and getting some good results so will be trying to get out further soon.
    the 300 smks are not quite as cheap as the 6.5 to run but way more fun!

    Nice video again. What did you judge wind speed as on the balloon?

    I used the wind at my position only and judged it to 4,5 msec. Effective wind was almost 6 msec which was plain to see up at the ballon really.
    I use the same windcall methods as I taught you guys horihunter, but DO look at the wind properly...

    Toby: Not much choice here, average 345 days of wind here.

    Sweet. What you taught us has helped me a lot. Certainly makes the learning curve a lot nicer

    I enjoyed the vid as well Thomas. I felt a bit ripped off that there was no thermos of coffee in this edition. The chocolate was ok but I look forward to the coffee and your pink case
    At least you could hit at that range mate. My effort would be classed as 'harrassing fire' at half the distance.

    Get his CD off one of the boys Jas. You will learn heaps.

    I am pretty sure we taught you all you need to know on your corps trg didnt we? Picking up dirty girls in Thailand can translate to all facets of life, especially shooting....no?

    That was hands-on and face to face during my last visit, it is not really on the CD (very basics).
    I've given up on the "internet-lessons" as they attract too much hostility, me not using/teaching gadgets.

    But it works.
