    I shot this about a month ago. Pretty bland as there isn't anything going on downrange and the cross hairs aren't on anything but the backstop, but I just wanted to see if I could do it.

    Opens up a lot of doors, I think....

    Oh, by the way, for the uninitiated...the thread title is a general motto of military snipers.

    The shot was taken through the glass of my M40. The backstop and targets are 500 meters away. The railroad ties at the bottom of the scope are at the 100 meter impact area.

    Next time, you should exclude the practice targets, and put a fake deer up there, if you can get your hands on one. Also, balance the ravine out if you take this photo again.

    the shot is hurt by the slant of the berm as seen in the reticule.

    (Yah, I know it slants in real life, but you are making the picture and the angle hurts the image because it causes the viewer to think about the slant
    and whether its important.)

    Yeah, there is that. But, as I said, I was only experimenting. It isn't easy to hold the rifle steady and keep the camera at the correct distance to see through the scope. I have another rifle with an illuminated reticle. Might work a bit better...or even for use with long exposure at night...
