I am using the JBM Program that I modify a little. The charts are in meters so I do not have to convert to yards to mach the Wild range finder. When I shoot I take Temp, Barometer, and Humidity, readings and compare the charts to my notes for reel world shots in similar conditions. I practice at all the I shoot in all kinds of wind and weather (rain snow) . When I go out to shoot I will put targets at unknown distances and set up the Wild range finder and start ranging and shooting. My goal is to hit on the first shot. I use streamers and mirage weeds and trees for wind readings. I have used wind meters in the past. I use to race sail boats nationally and have a good feel for wind.

I was looking at the Oehler how do you like it? When making a drop chart out to 2500 meters can you go in 20 meter increments?

Re: 338 YOGI 300g Deer Hunting Story

CM,
It works a little different depending on the total range of the chart. Up to 1000 yds it's as low as 20yd increments, up to 1500 it's 30yds, up to 2000 it's 40 and up to 2500 it's 50 yd increments. It has four increment selections for each one of these scales mentioned, the others are higher. I'm not sure if Oehler has a demo download of the program, it might be worth a check. I think they do for the M43 PBL software.


The 20 yard increments are really needed beyond 1000yds where they start increasing it to 30 and so on, ass backwards if you ask me. Other than that it's the best program with all the nice features, charts, graphs and ammo/bullet database etc.

FYI: Oehler does have a demo available on their site. I was just there the other day and got it. I have used their original program for at least 8 yrs and am looking to update...

Re: 338 YOGI 300g Deer Hunting Story

Many people don't condone MatchKings for sporting use, but do you know the funny thing about actually using them? Well the 165gr. HPBT GameKing(No. 2140) IS a 168gr. HPBT MatchKing with its nose swaged into a four corner point. In the past I have killed 17 deer with that particular bullet fired from a .308 Win. I have had more instant kills with that combo than all the other bullets I've tried. Too bad Sierra wouldn't offer the 300 gr., .338 cal. MatchKing in the same configuration........then you really would see an impressive exit wound!!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
