Climb segments

Company has changed sop's and wants us to climb to moca in the event of an engine failure.

read 99 confirmed kills by carlos hathcock. his longest snipe was a little over 1200 m with a m2 .50 and a scope cobbled on it . BTW 2567m or 2.57/1.6=1.60625 miles. The missouri prior to retirement with a 16" gun would regularly put a shell within 100 m at 20 miles. that is marksmanship

True enough that 6rds of 357 would kill a bear, the question is would it realize that it was dead, before it mauled you. as i said earlier I pumped 3 rds into the boiler room, and the postmortem was not a textbook biological lesson, the third shot hit the spine which crumpled it up.
