    My little bulldog chased the squirrel up the tree and it sat there chattering at us, and 1.5 mil dots later, it fell.

    That is the 22 Talon SS on Maddog stock. It is just too reliable.

    Thanks for the practical tips Ted, keep them coming.

To be frank, I suck at math. But Ted you explain stuff really well. What I figured was that if you
    shooting at something in a tree, aim slightly lower that your intended point of impact. Haven’t tried it yet but am gonna.

    You should get a tilt-technology rangefinder. No more elevation corrections necessary. You'll always get horizontal distance so you can simply use your software's zero angle numbers.

    Hopefully the target stays put long enough to get all the calculations done, if not just aim slightly lower than your intended POI.

    The "aim low" trick is problematic because you need to know the hight of the scope and distance to target, if your scope is 5mm from your barrel, point of impact only get low beyond 14 yards (60-75 grade angle) more closer in fact the  point of impact ist hight!! you get lucky this time…nice shoot nevertheless

    lol :-). That's why I got a tilt rangefinder! Bunnies don't seem to be very patient. I do enjoy Ted's videos, though. It's nice to know the science behind the technology. He definitely da man!
