The 25. of July I was out to try to make some regulation by the fox pups. I sat in a stand and had a great view to a harvest field. There were no fox pups this morning, but after a while a Dow was coming out of the woods, and started feeding, about 120 meters from me. I turned my riflescope on 20-x magnification, and it?s succeeding me to ?catch? the Dow with my camera through the scope.MauserPosted Image

It?s a bit difficult, but I had lined my rifle up on the edge of the stand. The camera settings are on ?MACRO? and then it?s just to find the right distance from- and full pictures in the scope. This work requires some practice. :lol: Mauser

I've used bullet drop-sheets for many years. I started doing it with my airguns due to their somewhat artillery trajectories. :) But even with my new Varmint Reticle scopes I feel it's worth it to have a chart to glance at when taking the time to use my rangefinder. :)

Hey John,I used to have a "cheat sheet" taped to the top of my home-made telephoto flash before they had TTL metering. I wish I had marketed the tele flash when I first thought of using one. I did it for a project in a biological photo class when I was working on my BA in Bio-Photography. Nobody had one at the time. Oh well, wouda, shoulda, coulda.It was funny. I received an A on the project, but the instructor didn't understand half of the physics involved in what I doing to prevent light falloff. Nowadays, most flash units have the same thing integrated into the body of the unit.db

When I decided to make my first stock, I broad a plank of American Walnut (2,5? x 4? ? 6 feet long) in the local lumberyard. Price: 150 $. It?s enough fore 3 ? 4 stocks.Then I joined me fore a Carver Class, to learn with kind of tools I shod use, and how I shod do the Carving work. It?s a good occupation fore a long cold winter. :) I think the 220 Swift is perfect for fox, especially on long range. I use a 50-grain Hornady V-Max moly-coated bullet. Of course, if the bullet takes a rib, the fox coat can be damaged. :) Mauser

I am very satisfied with the accuracy in my A&B barrel. Can keep a 5 shot group less than 1 inch on 100 meters.Mauser

So it looks like the "Dow" is up but how is the "nazdak" doing :P Sorry couldn't resist B)

Of course, ?Dow? and ?Doe? it?s not the same, but in my ears its sound like. Sorry :D Det er ikke altid nemt for en Dansker med alle de m?rkelige engelske ord! :P Mauser
