Haha. Think about a whole farm using burples.
I met a Cousin from Kentucky who is a CBD farmer during Christmas dinner on my Father’s side of the family this year. It was hard to avoid the temptation to ask all kinds of questions without letting the cat out of the bag that I am a micro-farmer myself.
I lived about 45 miles from Snowflake, AZ back in the early to mid 1980’s.
Snowflake is only about 100 miles from one of the sites where I do some of my extreme range precision rifle shooting.
I’ve driver through Snowflake before. It’s in the middle of nowhere.
I have lived in the middle of nowhere and Snowflake was way further away than that from anywhere. LOL
Seems like a crazy waste of energy. They have to have better lights but with the right wavelength light to produce those hues.
It’s one of the things I hated about that burple I bought. I had to buy a pair of protective glasses because tending to my plants with the burple on caused acute vision problems.
Is it anywhere near ‘Resume Speed’ Arizona? Haha
The closest place to Snowflake is “Where the hell am I”, AZ
My longest hit is 1 mile (1,760 yards.)
Is the purple that brilliant to the naked eye? That is, as @Covertgrower suggests, crazy!
You mean 100 x 1000 watters!
My best friend shot a bad guy with a Barrett, cold-bore, no dope on the shot, later evaluated at 1,345 yards. I’ve seen him do amazing things with a rifle. THAT was an amazing shot.
Absolutely. When I’m on the mile range I start at 620 and work my way out with stops at 740, 860, 960, and 1,100.
It’s experience that puts you on target for a cold bore hit at those ranges.
Nice yeah my dad goes to the range every weekend shoots everything.
I believe there is more to it than that. I"M experienced and could not make that shot. What he has (and have seen in 2 other people) is a processor in his head that can dope wind, deflection etc into a hold that is amazingly close.
I watched him chase down and kill (sort of) a coyote: he got him on the 4th shot at 975 yards with a 243 running and we had to finish him off as the bullet penetrated about 2 inches. I’ve made a few impressive shots but only when my brain was disconnected from the shot.
I understand in consistent shooting long range you have to have a good record of the gun, the load, ambient conditions etc in addition to the ballistics etc. Another reason I’m looking forward to Colorado as there are a few long ranges available. Ft. Carson, the Dragon Man etc.
