    Nice shooting mate. 180 yards with the hornet is a cracking shot. I had my personal best last week with the 6.5x55 at 200+ yards (not checked with rangefinder yet but paced out at 254)

    Well done mate ! Good feeling isn't it ? Rather than a Rangefinder, especially at night i take steps measurements then compare it on Google earth the following day, making sure i got some landmark of somekind first, tree, post, gate etc.

    Yep. Google earth works for me too. The problem with where I shot my last one is that it was out in the middle of a moor with no decent landmarks to measure. Paced it out but I was up a slight hill so obviosly line of site is shorter. Will borrow my mates rangefinder when we are next out there in the day.

    One reason why I splashed out on a pair of Geovids, indispensable when foxing at night, no more arguments how far the fox is away. Good shot though.Couple of weeks ago I missed a curled up sleeping fox at 335 yards, bullet went a fraction high as I gave it a little to much. It was asleep in the morning sun and I was unable to get any closer, must say fox woke up quite quick and just trotted off. He wont be so lucky the next time.

    Keep up the good work
