I will also add for what it's worth. It may surprise some to know even a G7 BC is not lineal to slowing velocity. As velocity drops you can actually see BC drop , then increase then drop again or visa versa.

A question about Shooter (hope I'm not over-thinking here): when inputing the range to target when shooting at an angle should one use the horizontal distance or actual distance?


Cheers

if you're using shooter to do the angle measuring, it will do it all, but unless you're shooting over 15^, don't worry about it, it wont have any effect..

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I realise this but I would still like to know if the input value is true distance or horizontal distance. If shooting at angle of, say 20, which one do I use?


Cheers

put in the true lazed distance, set shooter to 20, it will tell you the horizontal "ballistic" distance
