Every rifle user who enters the battlefield for hunting has a moral obligation to have his gun properly seen.
Whenever there is a chance to shoot on game animals, there are usually other factors that will reduce our chances of throwing all the important fatal shots.
Some of these elements are the intensity and direction of the wind, the distance to the target, the level of excitement and physical exertion we get when shooting, and whether the shooting is uphill or downhill.
We try our best to control or allow these variables by using a laser range machine to determine the distance, using a stable still device and allowing wind and shooting angles.
What we don't need is the possibility that game animals are injured or missing because our rifles are not seen correctly. Sighting-
Rifles are not too time consuming, difficult or expensive if we have the right equipment and follow some simple steps.
The first step in rifle aiming is to install a durable, high quality range.
Don't be stingy with this because your gun can only shoot if the range allows.
If you install the telescope on your rifle for the first time, use a threaded locker or Loctite on the screws, torque the base down until they are very tight, but don't overdo it.
Connect the Laserlyte boresighter level to the base and adjust the level of the gun by fixing the bubbles to the level and then fixing the gun to this position so that it will not be easily
The rifle must be within a few feet from the wall, because in a later step you will be firing a laser beam for adjusting the range.
Now remove the leveling machine according to the manufacturer's instructions and attach the ring and range.
When the rings come from the factory, be careful to keep their top and bottom matching to ensure the pressure-
Free alignment with base.
Adjust the range for proper visual relief, but do not tighten the ring screws for the time being.
The next step to aim in the rifle is to insert the laser sight into the rifle's muzzle and connect the bubble level and turn them until the bubbles indicate that they are horizontal.
Now, tighten the northern lights of this position by turning the tightened collar.
When you turn on the laser force meter, you will see a horizontal line projected onto the wall.
View the range, adjust the marking by turning the range until the horizontal marking matches the horizontal laser line and tighten the ring screw.
Your guns and ranges are now exactly the same as each other.
Take out the bubble level.
You are now ready for the Northern Lights.
You will want to determine the best line of sight before you go to the shooting range --in your rifle.
If your rifle is only for short distances, you may just want to see it within 100 yards.
But if it's also used for long distance flights, you'll want to see --
In order to make better use of the trajectory of the rifle, in a longer range.
A good system is MPBR (
Maximum margin range)system.
This is a aiming system.
At this point, the hunter can target the dead MPBR and make sure to hit the important area of the game animal without delay. When sighted-
In the MPBR system, the maximum number of bullets rising above the line of sight is the middle
The amount of the range track and bullet falling below the line of sight is the same as MPBR.
Most large game hunters use three 4 inch as this number.
The Varmint Hunter may want it to be 2 inch or even 1. 5 inches.
Of course, the scope of the bullet and the line of sight is the line of sight-in distance. Once sighted-
In this way, the Hunter limited his shooting to the MPBR, just aiming for death.
If the shot is kept within MPBR, the bullet will remain within the critical kill area of the animal.
There are two ways to find the MPBR for a specific cartridge.
The first one is to take a look at the trajectory table of your rifle/bullet combination, and the second more precise method is to use the bullet ballistic program of Barnes or Sierra.
With these programs, you can enter the details of bullets such as bullet caliber, weight, ballistic coefficient, speed, etc. , plus the amount of mid-range trajectory you choose to use.
The results will show the rise and fall of the bullet in all the actual shooting range and line of sight range, as well as the line of sight-in range.
Pay attention to your load trajectory at 100 yards and the rise of the line of sight
At the shooting range, then to the shooting range.
Once you arrive at the shooting range, you will need a shooting bench or other type of stable bracket with a front and rear shooting bracket.
Place the target at 25 yards and support the rifle with an aurora borealis laser projected onto the target.
Adjust the cross until it perfectly matches the center of the laser point.
Your rifle is now being targeted.
Take out the targets of boresighter and fire shooting.
It should be very close to the bull's eyes.
If there is no corresponding adjustment to the scope.
Now put the target at 100 yards and shoot one shot.
At this distance, you want the bullet to hit the bull directly above the eye, as you have determined from a ballistic table or a ballistic program.
If not, adjust the range, fire another shot, repeat until it is done.
Once the shot hits where it should hit, shoot twice more to form a 3-shot group.
Determine the center point of the group and adjust the range if needed.
Continue shooting 3 shooting groups and adjust the range until the group prints out where they should print.
If your shooting distance is long enough, you may now want to move your target to the line of sight
Shoot a group in the distance to verify that the death was hit.
If so, your rifle is visible now.
On the bench.
I like to see the scenery-
Several steps in the further process.
I used a set of shooting sticks to shoot 100 yards from sitting.
Most of the time, shooting like this, I can keep my team almost as small as it is on the bench.
If the group I shot from this position is a bit off, I adjust the range so that the rifle can shoot directly.
I didn't really realize my rifle until nowin.
But I'm not ready to go hunting.
I like to run two or three more times in the distance, shooting targets from venues like sitting, kneeling and standing.
These shooting processes are always rewarding.
They showed me the exact distance I was able to continuously hit important areas of a certain size from the field position, and then I limited my shots to those ranges while hunting.
I also practice fast shooting at 50 yards.
When hunting, it is sometimes necessary to do follow-up shooting, which taught me not to hesitate to shoot quickly and accurately.
After seeing my rifle, I went back to the bench and placed a target at 25 yards, projecting a laser beam directly into the bull's eyes with the Northern Lights.
I mark the cross hair position on the target, and then whenever I go hunting, I take this target with me and my laser sight, so I was always able to use them to check if my rifle still had vision
Went in without shooting.
This is an important consideration when my rifle has been riding on a bumpy safari car for a while, or after an accidental impact. Sighting-
It's not hard to use a rifle, but once it's done well, we can rest assured that there will be one less variable between us and the trophy animal that packs us so eager to try.
The time and ammunition spent is a small price, which can give us confidence in our shooting ability. Happy hunting.
