Leica 1600b - Question on ballistic curve
Im looking strongly at purchasing a Leica 1600b but I had a question on choosing the proper ballistic curve out of the 12 that are available.
Lets say I did my handload testing work at an elevation of 600ft but I will be hunting at 7500ft. Should I use my drop figures for my load work at 600ft elevation or should I use a ballistic calculator factoring in the 7,500ft elevation I will be hunting at?
I guess what Im trying to determine is what does the device use as a starting point to calculate the proper holdover, clicks, etc, for the elevation you are currently hunting.
I looked at the instruction manual on the Leica website but it was not clear to me how they chose the ballistic curves.
Thanks for any info you may have on that. Mike
