Re: Spin Drift

What ballistic calculator are you using if any? I use shooter and just add in the SD and Corolis automatically. My buddy just sights his rifle in 1/4" left at 100yds. and has good results. Actually the 1/4" left is the same method Mike Davidson and Bob Beck both use. I have spoken with both of them and they both told me the same thing.

Re: Spin Drift

It sounds like your over thinking it a bit. First off, it should only be 4-6in at 1000yds. All i I do is incorporate a little cheat chart on my field drop chart. It's something like this for my 30WM:
Spin Drift
Move right MOA
200-400 =.2
500-600 =.3
700-800 =.4
850-900 =.5
650-1000=.6

You could also use inches if you don't have a MOA reticule. Which would be for example: 700-800yds=.4
so. .4 x 1.076=.43in ----.43 x 7.50 ( 750yds)=3.2in

Re: Spin Drift

Negative. It works in relation to time of flight, not distance.
It is not an angular issue.
My 6 BR has about 9" at 1000yds, but only 1.8 at 500.
