Anyone dial on a handgun?

I don't have a scoped XP100 in mind. I'm thinking the kind of handgun where the muzzle velocity is under 2000fps, maybe just 1500, and the BC's are pretty low so that it's dropping 6" fifty yards past zero and triple that after another 50 yards.

The animals beyond 600 yards I was dialing a 7mmRM or 6.5-06.

I used the reticle for lots of animals at 400 yards..

Last evening my son and I were looking for a good whitetail buck overlooking a deep draw. Far ridge was 500 yards to the gate at the crest of it so we had it pretty well covered. Group of does comes out and we watch them feed across the hill waiting for a buck to come by. All of a side the does go on alert and tail go up, a couple bolt and most just get real nervous. Coyote slips up from a little wash and tries through the group. I dial for my boy and the coyote does a flip and a spin before crawling into a patch of brush. 465 yards on a walking coyote in the grass is a pretty good shot for a 12 year old. I think he's still grinning in his sleep.

Thread is a bit of a hot mess but we recently ran an extensive field test with some of the most well respected shooters and Dialing any time beyond intial zero was determined to be a better solution for western hunting.

I'd rather die in a BAD gunfight than a GOOD nursing home.

Some Vortex.

Jerry Miculek and Rubin A ran Vortex optics, which worked very well.

Most others including Kyle Lamb had Leupold which also worked very well.

Lots of very good optics these days.
