I`ve just got back from the range after having a 2 hr practise session on the running boar range. The boar are 60 meters away and travel at about 10mph.
First, I started with the 9.3x62. I have a Swarovski Z6i 1-6x24 CD-1 scope sitting atop of an R93. It is zeroed at 100m. I was practising with PP 285 SP which travel at 2236 FPS according to the Privi website. I was aimīng at the tip of the boar`s nose but found most of strikes hitting the gut. It appears that it needs a good deal of lead, about a foot in my estimation.
Next came the 300 Win Mag. I was using a Zeiss 3-12*56 scope again sitting atop of an R93. Again it is zeroed at 100m. I was using Privi 150 Gr SP which travel at 3150 FPS. Not much lead was required at all. I`m thinking of swapping the swaro Z6i on to the 300 Win Mag. Or should I practise more with the 9.3x62?
Forgive my ignorance but can anybody recommend a programme if such a programme exists, that will calculate the lead required for different cartridges at various ranges?
