actual MV

How do I calculate the actual MV when I chronograph at 10 feet (or more) to prevent blast interference?

Re: actual MV

1: You can use a ballistic calculator,



Or you can deduct 0.64 FPS for each foot. This is the Army's standard. Calculators are much more acurate.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: actual MV

Does this program also give reticle analysis with Leupold B&C reticles as well as Swarovski TDS? I'm eager to find a program so that I'll know for any zero chosen for the crosshair and any given flight characteristic for a given load (vel. BC, etc.)the actual ranges that each bar represents in those reticles.

Re: actual MV

I am currently working on the latest version. This newest version will include the TDS reticle.

Currently, it analyzes B&C, Lupy Varmint, Mil-dot, 2nd Generation Mil-dot, NF NP-R2, NF NP-1RR, Lupy TMR, USO's GAP, and IOR's MP-8.
