Ballisticard sleeve for scope

How do you guys attach the ballistic info. to your gun/scope for quick reference? I'm thinking small pieces of thin cardboard with required info. slid into a plastic sleeve glued to the scope body/ocular housing??

I write or type my data onto a sticky label and place it inside the rear Butler Creek scope cap. I also now have Eagle Stock packs on all my rifles and keep a/several laminated set(s) of data in there too.

Look closely at the rear scope cover.

You must have excellent close-up vision. I need reading glasses for something like that. Plus, much of my hunting is done at "oh-dark-thirty" when the mature bucks are just barely (and legally) visible. so here is how I handle my drop table needs in the field. This is on one of my "antique" wooden-stocked rifles from years ago.

I don't read the data off the sticky...the person with me reads it to me... [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I'm wearing trifocals now and thinking about getting reading glasses too. I can read your data sheet no problem... but with it being that big so can the folks on the International Space Station [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Ballisticard sleeve for scope

I just carry drop and windage cards with me in my pocket. I use kentucky windage and elevation since I don't have an easily adjustable scope like ya'll. My cards are on regular index cards and I carry wichever one I need for the load. I have a whole safe full of guns but only use the m-14 sniper for hunting so at least most of the time I know where the bullet is gonna go. I got the card though just in case. On the top of each load card I write the scope cliks for it zero with this particular load. on the rest of it is comeups in inches for ranges to 1000 yards and windage chart for up to 50 mph. I got some windage wheels too that are very helpful but don't usualy carry them in the field. I only use them when shooting real small targets like prairie dogs usualy from right next to the truck.
BTW: that's a nice rifle you have there.
