What kind of shooting log do you use?

I want to start using a log book to keep track of all my range time,so hopefully I can use it to learn from.What kind of information should I use each time?I was thinking,temp.,wind,pressure,humidity,group size,distance.Anyone who keeps track that could chime in and add some advise would be appreciated.If you know where I could get a good log book,that would be helpful also.

    If you are trying to learn from different shooting conditions and such, Sinclair Internatinal has some (mostly for highpower competion shooting) that should work. If you are thorough in you recording you can see patterns form such thing as cold bore shots and weather conditons.

    Here is a page out of mine on a day testing at 300 yards. A properly maintained log book is a very valuable tool.
