Re: Ballistic calculation - double check

My calculator says 703.61" of drop and 44.80 MOA.

This program does not take into consideration the zero conditions either. How close is this to yours??

Posted that last one before reading your last post. So I guess 44.80 MOA is pretty close. I use the Berger ballistics program. Love it. Very very simple and so far has been very accurate. Retumbo is an "extreme" powder so temp is suppose to have very limited effects. All of the powders I use are extreme. Let me know how it all works out.

Yers and mine seem to be in agreement. LOL. Nice. 44.8MOA and 703.5"

Hornady is 45.5MOA. .7 MOA at the distance is 10.5".

If it all works out I will let it rip this weekend on a rock and maybe get lucky and see another black wolf, a dumb one that will stand still.

Re: Ballistic calculation - double check

Wow. I got curious and ran the same ballistics for me since I'm getting pretty much the same speed. Shooting exact load you are. But I'm at 600 ft elevation. To get to 1500 yards it'll take me 52.18 Moa. That's a huge difference. The drop for me is 819.52". That's 116" difference. You must be high up there. What elevation are you at?? I don't know if ill have enough turret to get there or not.

About 5000. Most of the wolf hunting is done around that elevation this time of year.
