so i know how many clicks i need for what range.
kinda new to the long range thing. out past 300 yards.
im not gonna be shoot no further then 550 yards.
the nikon has the bdc reticale in it but not sure if i waanted to use that or not.
any info will help please thanks!
need help gettin started!!!
Sounds like a new adventure about to begin. First thing to help develop a drop chart is getting some data. You need to know what bullet you plan to use. Knowing the ballistic coefficient is necessary to help develop your drop chart. Next is to chronograph your loads and see what the avg velocity of your rounds are. Then you need to go out and shoot to verify your work. There are different programs out there that allow you to put this info in and get a close idea. JBM calculations on the internet is a good one. I have the Ballistics FTE program offered to Ipod users.
Or you can forgo the above and simply go out and start shooting targets at range and see how many clicks it takes to get you to center. That will be good exercise.
