Re: Ballistic Application Question

I think you may be right and I am wrong. I stand corrected.
I hadn't gone back to edit the bullet information in a while and just noticed it does ask for temp, alt, & humi etc. in that section and also in the main page.
Wonder if it distinguishes, remembers and does the math...............Hmmm

Re: Ballistic Application Question

It does remember. I had set my load at 4200ft, 10F, and baro for the day. I used this all winter and into the spring. My elevation was dead on all the way to 1500 yards.

I don't use Altitude anymore. I do use absolute barometric pressure though. It works very well and has not let me down yet. For example when I shot the 160 matrix loads I was shooting at 25 abp and 59F. The rifle was zero'd at 200 and 2850 fps used as the velocity. I don't use the powder temp. I would leave this in my iPod as the go to Hard coded info for the bullet unless I re-zero for some reason somewhere or sometime else. I can also go in and select my 140 VLD and just re-zero my turrent. I have a note in the comments section that says .75 MOA down from 160 zero. I dial .75 MOA down and that is my zero for the 140. I took that out to 1000 last weekend it was dead on.

Shooter makes me giggle. I almost feel like a shooter. LOL
