He won't care in a minute.

Not far enuff (for his sake, anyways).

I don't know, but he's about to be blown someplace far, far away!

Shoulder to waist~ 18"-22"

If he were standing a perfect 1 mil.

1.0 mils @ 10x

~ 600 yds.

Don't know the power of the scope though.

Damn, I thought I was the only one that made my scroller roller thingy in the middle of the mouse click with my trigger finger when I saw that pic.

Don't shoot him till he has shined all those boots!!

If you killed him you would have successfully eliminated the man incharge of disinfecting shoes.

talk about a badass pic! rack up another raghead.

Gotta be photoshopped unless the guy is really big, or right next door. About 3 mils standing!

Photoshopped mildots.

It has to be a photoshop. Aside from the picture looking so good...
THE MIL DOTS ARE PERFECT CIRCLES THEY SHOULD BE ELIPSES
Didnt anyone else notice?

He's about 100 yards out
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 8:02:02 PM EST
665 yards at 10X Easy shot.

It would be a simulation of a Army scope due to the mils being round. The Marines use a oval dot.

Thanks! I just got me another "Own3d" pic!

100yds?! Nah! I agree w/ bigbore... 650yds, maybe 670.

Gotta figure asscheeks-to-shoulders = ~ 24" @ 1 mil, and assume dots are calibrated to scope power. Crank it into my Mildot Master => 670yds.

If you dial your dope for 100yds, you'll wake him up, but that's about it!

A nice slow breath, hmmmmmmmmmm feel the tension on the sling as pulse bounce settles to nothing, gentle squeeze, crisp break at 4.1 pounds, recoil, settle in scope and watch the asshole fall over. Good bye militia shithead. Have spotter scope for his buddies and see if we can get a few more before lunch.

I keep coming up with around 700yds or so, maybe 750 tops if we call him 6 foot or so. We all seem to be a little different, maybe he has some friends who can stand there and we can see whose right.

Uh what? The dots on my Premier Reticle Gen2 are perfectly round. I think the USMC-spec dots are ellipses, but that doesn't mean that is the right way to do it.......

Most mildot scopes are elliptical but there are round ones also. I believe I heard that the USMC uses round dots.

Exactly. Let the big guns do something about the owners of all those boots.
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 9:50:23 AM EST
I'm guessing between 600 and 650. Call it 625. Wait 'till he stands, or turns, then squeeze......

I've seen that view before, somewhere, except I was looking above the #12.

You could always use the Adirondack SmartScope that SWFA sells. Of course you have to pull the trigger to get the picture.

Okay how the hell can you tell the distance just by taking measurments of the guys body?
