Re: Ballistics Program question?
You are on the right track.
After shooting in the real world, take your data and make a ballistic program match by manipulating the drag function and BC. Note that most BC number's when used on a scale other than G1 are generally lower in number than the BC's that are based on G1. This doesnt meen that it is a bad thing. The high G1 BC's are more marketing hype than anything. Anyway, back to the program. Just make sure that you input accurate enviornmental factors such as temperature and the like. Also, if it takes 100 clicks on a .25 MOA scope this doesent meen that the bullet dropped 250 inches. Rather 100 clicks would equal 261.75" due to the differance between MOA and inches. A scope (provided it was made and distributed accurate) with .250 MOA/click is .26175" per click. From counting clicks, you can get a rough idea how many inches your bullet dropped from zero.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
