Home-Made PM2 BDC result

Iím sure Iím not the first to do this, but I thought Iíd just share with you all this homemade BDC idea.

ĎField Testedí it this morning shooting 2 yearling bucks.

Being able to go straight from LRF to dialling the turret Ėwithout having to refer to my comeup chart- massively increased my speed of engagement. Very satisfying.




Itís simply a printout from a Word document, printed at a scale ratio to match the turret marks, then covered in waterproof tape. The Mk2 version will see it printed on waterproof paper.

Iím extremely pleased with the result of this extremely simple mod and thoroughly recommend it!

    I did that for my VXIII but it wrapped all the way around and had 3 levels to represent the 3 rotations of come-ups. Worked quite nicely. When I settle on a new load I may very well do it again. I made it in Xcell and used "small fonts". This let me angle the numbers slightly and add color to the different levels.

    What would be the cats meow is if someone made custom engraved turrets so I could take my hunting turret off and put on my varmint turret for a different bullet and velocity. Oh baby!!!

    Only problem with those custom emgraved turrets is that after you get out there a bit, the variables start stacking up so as to make them useless. Differances in temp, barometric pressure, altitude (anything that effects air density), shooting uphill/downhill ect are all contributors. That being said, for good ways out there, say 600-1000 depending on your BC/MV and your origional zero distance this is the best way to do it. My 243 is set up exactly this way. 0-600yds in a single twist. Mine is not nearly as spiffy as Brown Dog's. Maybe ill spend some time on the computer in the morning whipping up a new one.
