    Great video. 

    How DID you have the crosshairs floating, while not shaking the video around?

    “Smaug”Great video.

It’s the stabilizing feature in Adobe Premier Pro called warp stabilizer. Not sure if any other program has this same feature.

Thanks! The 25 cal 25.39gr JSB has been the favorite for my unregulated mrod. Only mod is a depinger and the classic WAR de-bouncing hammer.

    Thank you. 
If you’re not using one already, may I recommend using an  external battery pack and save yourself the headache’s later. Weird glitches tend to happen when using alkaline or lithium batteries. I used the external battery pack I recommended in my video description for 5 straight hours and still had about 80% charge left. Note I did have the WiFi turned on and also kept my phone fully charged. The battery may be a bit over kill. Oh well. If I decided to go ratting later that evening that battery pack would of kept on going all night.  I did. put the battery in a stock pouch which I also purchased on Amazon for $35. Fits nicely in the pouch. Please share your videos of your hunts if you don’t mind. Happy hunting.

    Aside from stabilizing the video, I thought I’d modify the video to add POI.  Admitingly, I do wish ATN would add 240fps to their software.

    Good shooting, really enjoyed. Looks like your zeroed at 75 yards or something with the hold under

You’re close. It’s zeroed @ 17 & 63yds using Profile1. I created a separate profile for 100yds which can be quickly selected since I stay connected to the X-Sight with my phone at all times. Also, creating your own range card when using the NP R2 reticle is necessary, I think, if you plan on using only one profile for various ranges. Then practice shooting at that profile.  Here’s an example video of me getting familiar with the XS. At one particular target, realizied I was on the wrong profile shooting at a 63yd target.  Quickly changed profile and hit the target. If it were a squirrel, it would have been a clean miss.  Practice,  practice practice.  You never know where a squirrel will pop out. At this training session I was using random targets laying in the road.

    This statement is puzzling to me: “Admitingly, I do wish ATN would add 240fps to their software. “.

    I didn’t have any problems programming the ballistics of my .25 caliber WARized Mrod into the X-Sight II. Perhaps that is an issue with the older firmware?

    Yes, just got done redoing my range card after 619 firmware update because they changed it to have the same  parameters as one of the nightforce scopes. I just set zero as I would a glass scope on the .22 mrod. 35 yard zero for polymag shorts & 50 yard zero for jsb 18g . Us hold over and hold under on both. Polymag out to 50 yards jsb 18g out to 100 yards. Had just updated to 619 a day before my last night rat ops and if you look close you can see how the pellet was off a little

Would be nice to have video at 240fps

Sure would, the best we got going is 1080p @30fps or 720 @60fps. Might be a power usage thing, but they should know 90+% of all users use a power pack and fast draining batteries are not an issue

I suspect the limitation is in the camera and/or the graphics processor they are using.

    Does the range finding feature work on these small critters or does it take to long to use the feature
