Fun Day at the Range

I took an AR-15 class today.  Top notch instructor.  The Bushnell 3x9-40mm BDC scope is past its prime (bought in the 1980s) and trying to adjust elevation by clicking CCW moved impact point down. CW also moved impact point down.  At least we managed to get it to reliably let me hit steel plates at 200 yards, 300 yards, 400 yards, and 500 yards.  By the end the wind was strong enough at 500 yards (and of course bullet speed drops a bit at that distance) that I had to hold left about a foot to hit the plate.

I may replace the scope with Redfield Rebel 4x12x40mm (made by Leupold in the USA with a lifetime warranty).  The Vortex Diamondback is an alternative made in the Philippines.
