    Eaglet,
    If you had posted 2560 Yards Shooting! it would be more believable, that is where they state the bullet goes sub-sonic.
    Have been shooting long range for more than a decade and the only absolute is that once a bullet goes from super sonic to trans sonic to sub sonic the results are not ABSOLUTE.

    Biran b,

    You are correct. I will continue to use CB1 without the absolutes.

    The original posts by DTA and the comparison made in SH, never stated any reference to absolute values, because all systems have inherent dispersion, as we all know.

    However, a prediction is absolute by its very self definition, since dispersion is not accounted for, unless a Monte Carlo type simulation is performed against the input/output data.

    What counts here is the size of the error taking the field data as the absolute reference, since as said before, we as shooters cannot control the other parameters.

    Moreover, the interest thing about the test was precisely the fact the shots and the predictions were in the subsonic region!

    Really! Eaglet states at the bottom of his first post that he is in no way affiliated with Patagonia ballistics.

    He is simply informing shooters about a new ELR product.

    Gentlemen,

    What can I say?

    You may believe whatever you like, it surely makes no difference to me.

    Respectfully,

    Eaglet
