Nightforce long range "wedge"

This looks like a novel approach to adding a gob of elevation to your optic, rather than attempt to describe go take a look at their website: https://www.nightforceoptics.com/rif...=Wedge%20Prism

A clever way to shift the LOS angle 50 or 100 MOA. Its instructions don't state the MOA units; actual minute angles or inches per hundred yards.

Users are cautioned that some windage error can happen. If the scope elevation adjustment axis isn't exactly aligned with the prism axis, horizontal error at target range will equal bullet drop times the sine of the error angle in degrees. No instructions provided to correct the problem. You have to twist the scope in its rings.

There were 2 such groups, one with 190's and one with 200's. One round with a 190 then one 200, shot alternating for a 30 shot composite near 6.5 inches.
