I decided to shoot it proper HFT style with no scope adjustments even though they where allowed, all was going well untill i shot a close target without holding over, Doh! just an absent minded mistake by me, then at the end of the course i missed 4 out of the last 5 kz's, on completing the course i rechecked the zero and the windage i had put on earlier had to come off again to correct the poi, so the difference in temp from -4 to +2 had an effect on something, breech mounts scope or a combination, maybe steal mounts on an alloy rail and scope are the problem?
I still won but should have had 5 points more!! the other miss's where just down to me!

One of these days i will put in a good result and come away knowing that all the mistakes where down to me, but i supose we are all in the same boat at the moment dealing with the problems that extremes of temperature bring.

nice going yesterday Simon. Missed the chance to blag a look through the NF..... damn

If i had known you where there Dave i would have made a point of finding you, the Nightforce 2.5-10x24scope was awsome, a definite improvememt over the bushnell 10x40 i uses to use, even out to 55 i had good clarity with no noticeable px error, i was shooting a resetable 55 yarder on the zero range and it was too easy so i resorted to shooting it standing with more hits than misses, i had a shoot with a couple of other guns with 3200 10x40's on back to back with my own gun, there are like night and day, they are that different! i have spoilt myself now though, theres no going back!!
I have a very slight blurr at 8 yards but as it was clear beyond 55 i might adjust the px a little more for proper hft.
I cant wait for normal temperatures to resume to elimanate the problems i experienced yesterday.
