Want to put that in meters?

When would Ya'll like me to ask a few Ranging questions?

The standard utility pole in the United States is about 40 ft (12 m) long and is buried about 6 ft (2 m) in the ground.[3] However, poles can reach heights of 120 ft (37 m) or more to satisfy clearance requirements. They are typically spaced about 125 ft (38 m) apart in urban areas, or about 300 ft (91 m) in rural areas,

Want a few lessons in ranging via intimate objects in the background?

....nothing to do with feet.....whats a 100 meters?...around 110 yds..???I don't see how anyone, even Hathcock could tell the distance when looking at a photo with no reference points,not even the Power Poles...

Leica Range Finders work better...Just kidding....my point ,is unless you know the range of an object in the photo,which you would have had to take the pic....it is hard to "Range" it...I have been into long range shooting for a while and thats how I respond in a hunting situation...I do much better with a Leica...When I hunted in Texas , we used standard points to range an animal...

I beg to differ....being raised with a gun in hand will do a lot for your confidence , in a shooting situation...man or beast...
