Re: long range shooting
I print sheets of ballistics that have been calculated in 1000 feet ASL increments and 10 degree F conditions. For example: If I know I am going to be hunting between 3000 and 6000 feet at 30-70 degrees I print ballistics in 25 yard increments at 3000' at 30,40,50,60,70 degrees. Then 4000 feet at 30,40,50,60,70 degrees and so on. I pack them up in a ziplock bag and I am good to go. There is also 10MPH wind in there as well. Then I print on the back of those ballistics the raw or real bullet drops (drops figured with the gun fired level with the earth.) with a seperate sheet of multipliers for angle shooting.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
