Re: Dope inconsistancy

Ive experienced the same thing. Dead on 0-800 in an xp handgun except at 450 where I was always low. By a min or so. It was always consistent so I made the correction on my drop chart and hunt her with incredible confidance. It's why you should always verify dopes. The computer will usually get you very close and my ohler is dead on but in the real world it just works out a bit differently. Still minute of deer but I prefer minute of exactly where I want it to go

Re: Dope inconsistancy

Have you ever tinkered with your ballistic software to iron out the "bump", or "dent" in your case.
