Let me put it another way. How many times have you ever heard "Oh hell I blew the shot of a lifetime because I set my scope to shoot West and the deer was to the East. Forgot to reset my scope to account for spin drift variance. "
Or... "Oh hell, I blew the shot of a life time because I didn't have the right dope"

Man I wish I had a scope that calculated spin drift and variances in bullet strike relative to whether I was shooting east or west.
All mine has is windage and elevation knobs.

Played with ce today at 1220. Went back forth with each direction and shot a solution facing east and elevation was good. I didn't read wind right so I got another mountain shooting education.
