Hello All,
I have a question to put forward to you guys with way more experience than I.
I have recently upgraded my rifle scope on my Tikka T3 African Hunter 30-06 Limited Edition. I have put a Leupold 4.5 - 14 x 40 ( no CDS ) on with the Varmint Hunters Reticle. My question is :

There are 2 size triangle settings for use when using the longer distance hold over points. Leupold has a few graphs to guide you on which triangle to use, but I cannot find anything that is close to my ammo. The ammo I am using is Federal Premium 180gn Trophy Bonded Tip, about 2700 fps at the muzzle. I am guessing the smaller triangle !!! Would I be wrong ? I do realise the 200 yard, 300 yard, 400 yard will not be exact, but I do want to know ( time for the range ) what the distances will be for mora accurate hunting. I will convert/ set up in metres as we use Metric system.
THANKING ALL WHO ANSWER IN ADVANCE. REALLY APPRECIATED.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
