Re: Adjusting Drop chart to real World Results
I believe that it is quite common to have to make corrections for a particular rifle load combo when working with standard ballistic programs. I have had good success with the calculator on the Best of the West site. I am sure there are other programs that do this, but the program provides for the correction of the actual impact points at long range and then enables you to determine a very precise ballistics chart. It then will provide an output that show either a "true velocity", or a "true ballistic coefficient". You can choose which one. My personal approach is to get the true ballistic coefficient since I am pretty confident in my velocity readings that I confirm on multiple set ups. I can then plug my true ballistic coefficient into my I phone FTE calculator which then will coincide and produce the same ballistic info, or use the data to make a ballistic turret.
