stepped BC charts

So how are you guys going about developing your stepped BCs at these ranges? Trial and data collection or some kind of formula to work off of or what....?

Re: stepped BC charts

I have tried everything I know of. Nothing replaces shooting groups at many distances, on flat grond if possible, on vertical targets and recording data. Then with that data for what it takes to be spot on, tune your program to get it on at all distances.

Longest I remember was 1805 yards and it was doing a good job. I am sure it would have went firther, but just didn't go there.

Re: stepped BC charts

when I get mine here in a couple weeks and get everything lined out with it I plan to push it out to 2000 on some steel targets
