I don't get it!! So you make one of these to see who can guess the wind and get the clicks in the scope right first? Once you set one of these up there's no skill involved. Just skill in who can set up the fastest and get the dope right first.
I agree with Antlurz. These are machinist/gunsmith types who enjoy the building of the precison apparatus as much or more than the shooting.
Reason for existence #2. This has to be the best way to test ammunition.
THese are like battlebots for the gun nut. Because we can.
Btw, the second scope is for spotting. Not in the sense of a spotting scope but getting the gun lined up with the target. Then you make your adjustments to the one over the bore. Kinda like that one on your telescope.
Well, my first reaction is they have built some really neat devices. But it aint shootin'. Then again some people feel that way about benchrest of regular rifles. Useful for sighting in and testing ammo, but it isn't shootin'. Not like 3 position, or silhouette or something.
I would like to know though what groups rimfire rail guns shoot.
Does anyone know? Some of the targets I have seen pictured of centerfire rail guns look almost all like one hole groups. Would
be interesting to know just what rimfire ammo is capable of since it usually is considered more variable than hand loaded centerfire. If rimfire rail guns shoot one hole groups, it would make you think the ammo is good enough not to be a problem.
