Re: Question for S1

Everything under the sun has kept me from shooting for a month or more now it seems. My dads well pump quit working, had to set another one in the new well and hook up a new psi tank too, rain, replace the wifes CD burner, get a friends three wheeler out of impound because he got a DWI, take care of some personal things for him too, sheetrock dads garage, Christmas shopping, flat tire x2 in one week, oil funace loosing prime... still fixing that, and several other things I know I'm forgetting too. Did I mention the wind is blowing about 40 right now? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I'll get out soon now probably after Christmas though. The R2 should work out well with the 300 Ultra but I think I'll need a bit more speed out of it, we'll see how it prints out to 1000 and I'll know for sure.

Here's that chart I was refering to earlier. You can't see the 1 mph lines on the smaller pics but the larger one shows up well.

Find the wind direction on the chart and the speed ring that intersects with it, from that point draw a straight line down to the 3 or 9 o'clock line, count the rings to get the actual full value CWC at this point. From this you might understand what I was refering to earlier a little better. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Hi S1, Regarding your 5-5-15-20-30 rule. I know this seems painfully obvious but I want to make sure. The specific numbers you listed were for 1/4 of the clock face. Just apply those numbers to the rest of the face in the correct place.Right? Please don't say something like add 5 for a head wind and subtract for a tail wind.The formula seems very uncomplicated as it is,for me that is a good thing.

Re: Question for S1

What program do you use for your calculations for elevation and windage at home? In the field after you have determined the distance wind direction and velocity in the field what do you use for your calculating the proper elevation and windage adjustments do you use a computer program or a pre made drop chart?

Re: Question for S1

S1, may I ask why those numbers? They don't correlate with the vector components of the wind velocity: a 10:30 wind is a 45 wind, and sin 45 = cos 45 = 0.707, a not 75%.
Thanks in advance.
