Re: Steep Uphill/Downhill with CDS/Kenton/Huskemaw type turret
about 15 years ago when I was trying to figure this out for myself, ((after shooting right over the top of a trophy Dalls Ram at 350 yards)),,,,,,,
I ran the numbers the old fashion way, with a piece of paper and a ruler ,,,,, this way you can also visually understand the concept better when you can look at it ,,,,,,
all that matters to bullet trajectory is what I call the horizontal distance to the animal or target ,,,,,,
does not matter if you are shooting up or down from horizontal, all that matters is the horizontal distance to the animal ,,,,,
take a large piece of paper or the back of a cardboard box and using a ruler, first draw a perfect 10" X 10" square ,,,,,
then within the square, draw vertical and horizontal graduations every one inch ,,,,,
now assign each inch to equal 100 yards ,,,,,,,,
now draw an imaginary line within that box at whatever angle you want to calculate the horizontal distance for ,,,,,,, and then measure the length of the line, with the ruler, again 1" equals 100 yards ,,,,,,
so if you measure one of your lines at 8" for instance, or 800 Yards, look and see what the vertical line grid it intersects at 8" corresponds to ,,,,,,
if you drew a 45 degree angle line 8" long, it should end up about halfway between the 5th and 6th vertical grid line ,,,,,,,
I hope I am making sense ,,,,,
