Trying to compute the sight settings for my 45-70, 535 Grn cast bullet load at 1300 fps, for an upcoming creedmore match followed by a match at one mile. It computes to just shy of 3 inches on the rear sight.

My Cheek weld is gonna suck big time.

Wow at that angle maybe you should replace your shoulder with a mortar base plate. ;)

Do you actually plan to hit anything at one mile? (Besides dirt, of course.)


.... Sounds more like a neck weld.

If there's any chance you'll be shooting from bags, I think I'd work on using your off-hand between your cheek and the stock like we did with the M60. You can cup your hand more or less to make your artificial weld after you load and make ready for the shot.
