It does make since why my 1500 yard shots in L to R are low. Also the 677 yard shot were really very good. I need a user manual for dummies I guess. If you feel like it explain why the drop and rise please.
Also in the picture with the impacts in the divet there are 4 total. 3 in the dark section and 1 out. Those 3 are about 4 inches apart max. The out 1 is actually only about 5 inches from the center. I have to stop shooting rocks I can not reach. Idiot. Lol.
I think you guys with hot rod 6.5s getting close to 3 might see those higher bc's. they do seem to shoot though.
No, you are no dummie! The first time I heard of that was several years ago when I was talking to an ex fighter pilot who used the bomber sight. He also was the designer of the reticle on the Swarovski scopes (TDS) His name was T.D. Smith, thus the TDS reticle. The last time I spoke with him, he wasn't doing well. He may be gone now? Anyway, The rotation of a bullet with right hand twist tends to drop more when the wind is on the side of the "up" rotation, which would be the left side. Converesly, a right to left wind pushes on the down rotation "right" side and tends to lift more. The twist rate, and some other ballistic factors, affect how much this occurs............Rich
Try shooting with a well dialed in load someday at 1000 yards in zero wind and then try the same load with say a 10 mph crosswind and see what happens. Very revealing!
