    @dms16 - I am seeing this video in my head as we plan this.

    You ought to see me when I get the AI's out and s#it gets serious....
    Congratulations on getting the BDC to line up - I've only had limited success, but then I have to deal with serious altitude issues.

    That country is really flat - much like where I grew up. The wind never bl00dy stopped howling (except at night).
    That's why I love now living in the mountains...

    I've tried to use SIG 550 (PE90) out to 800-900m with 20.7" barrel, and it really struggles.
    But then I was limited to only using 62-69gn projectiles because of the 1-10" twist.
    Maybe my 416 build (under construction) can do better...

    I really don't care much at all for BDC's...as they rarely ever work right. This is the closest I've ever come and it's not for the load it was marked for.

    Yeah, the wind is a real b!tch here, but that just means I get a lot of practice at it. Stay tuned...we're going to push some 77gr out of a 20" 1:7 and see how far I can go.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan either.

    I keep telling the Swiss shooters that they'll get murdered in a competition with the "flat-landers" because they have very little serious wind to practice with.

    More that 30 years ago one of the gun rags wrote a story where they cut down a 12" 44mag revolver

    First they shoot it over a chrono

    They cut one inch off of it's length, then does another chrono

    they keep cutting one inch off and repeating another chrono

    until it gets down to about three inches

    BASICALLY the pistol lost about 200 fps with the loss of every inch of barrel

    Given this is a rifle, I would expect more loss of FPS with the 1"/2" loss of shorter barrels

    THANKS FOR THIS INFO, very informative

    Yeah...that's still being done

    There's a blog (Rifleshooter) that has done this with .223, 6.5CM, 308, 224 Valk, 300 win mag and more...

    Yeah, I no longer 'keep up' with all the new hotness that is coming out of the gun industry.

    That is why I still like reading what all you folks WHO DO keep up, and what it means in your application of it

    Sigh... any day above ground is a good day

    So true...


    Re: "keeping up", there really isn't much new under the sun worth the hassle. I love hot, new s#it that is supposed to make my life easier but little has changed. The flashlights are brighter, the AR's shoot a little softer and pistol red dots are coming into the norm...that's about it. Case in point, I'm sitting here in a thread I made regarding a rifle/optic combo that was "cutting edge" in 2005. All the while I'm contemplating paying a premium for an unobtainium CA762SSAL/RE flash hider so I can finally get my XM3 build on...

    So much for "hotness" LOL.

    And BTW,

    Initial testing of the 20" 416 has begun. So far, results are...
