And how do you like the 4-14 HUD reticle ? I'm a fan of PA's optics..
This potentially sounds fun.
I don't know his business model, but he does it mostly online, so I'm betting CC is in his business wheelhouse.
I'll contact him if this happens.
I am still waiting for the 300 yard 22LR

.223/5.56 is easily doable at 300 yds. I've done some 1.5" groups with a factory rifle/pencil barrel MSR's at that range with my reloads tuned to that rifle.
It looks daunting if you've never shot at 300 yds, but after a day of shooting, it can get boring banging those steel plates time after time with semi rapid fire.
Don't overthink it. Use some quality ammo that is known to your firearm and work on keeping steady and working the wind. Wind can be the downfall at that range.
For a 168 Sierra MK (.308), leaving the muzzle at 2700 fps with a .464 BC, the numbers are as follows, with a 10mph, 9 o’clock crosswind:
Drift at 100: .75 moa (3/4″)*
Drift at 200: 1.57moa (3.14″)
Drift at 500: 5.06moa (25.3″)
The .223/5.56 is going to drift even more as a lighter bullet. So worry about the wind as much as anything IMHO.
Late March to April looks good right now. I'll be on some 600 yd ranges between now and then.
@thor447 If you want to check out Athlon scopes, let me know next time you're up here, I've got a few...
Uhh build something new.....everyone needs an excuse for another gun. Lol
It's pretty good, hold overs are nearly dead on for 68/69/75 grainers or close enough you can make a follow up shot fairly easy.
Okierider kicked this off wanting to shoot his Grendel out to 500 yards and maybe further.
Without sounding snobbish (which I’ve been accused of), I would venture to guess most who will attend a long range ENS with a max range of 300 yards will find it too easy given they have adequate optics/peep sights. Depending on muzzle velocity and if shooting 1/2 or 2/3 IPSC steel targets, any type scope adjustment really isn’t necessary to get hits assuming a head hold. Even with a full value 20mph wind, holding off target 1 to 1.5 MOA you’ll roughly center punch it. If you dial adjustments to your scope, have a bipod and rear bag, it’s as easy as squeezing the trigger. Naturally, shooting smaller/round targets will make it more challenging.
300 yards may challenge one or two shooters, but it won’t challenge many centerfire rifle cartridges, especially Okierider’s Grendel, but it will still be lots of fun.
For 300 yards with a 100 yard zero most shooters will require between:
~3 to ~4 MOA elevation
5mph FV wind, ~0.6 MOA
10mph FV wind, ~1.4 MOA
15mph FV wind, ~2.1 MOA
20mph FV wind, ~2.9 MOA
Depending on optic, you can dial or hold for it.
