Greyfox

Did you get away from using Balistic AE?

I see now you can input actual turret values in the program now!

    Yes, this does work and allowed the correction. It wasn't instantly recognizable to me in Shooter. My experience with a previous program I was using allowed for a direct input of the actual click value correction, ie .264/click. Shooter requires that you enter a correction factor in the rifle program section for the increase or decrease in elevation or windage. This factor .264/click would be 1.056 which is calculated by dividing .264 by .25.

    I am constantly amazed at all the things that must come together for LR shooting. I am not talking about walking rounds into the target either. I mean flat out, 1st round kills on the target. Thanks for starting this thread. Another opportunity to be educated.

    Greyfox,

    Would these factors be "Elev Correction Factor" and "Wind Correction Factor"?

    If so . . . well I'll be darned!!!! Have wondered what those are for.

    Not trying to answer for Greyfox, but that is correct from my perspective. I left at mine at the default of 1, which is 100%. If you input 1.10 that is basically 110%, etc. I have not done an actual like Greyfox did, just "assumed" .25MOA was .25MOA not anything else.

    Me too for assuming. Guess those days are over.

    Think I'm going with CE bullets for the 375. Hell may as well spend as much shootin' as was spend buildin'.

    Next thing to digest is the wind affect from that other mind boggling thread.
