Re: Confusion on My Ballistics


I share your enthusiazm on the AMAX's. I have seen amazing accuracy out of multiple rifles as well as good BC's. (I hear they are VERY lethal on deer sized critters too.)
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.

Re: Confusion on My Ballistics

Because it seemed like a good topic for discussion that everyone might benefit from. And because I like to have multiple inputs when making a decision. Chris is awesome, as well as the rifle he built me, but this question dealt with ballistics and not specific to his rifle. This is by no means a problem with the gun. I'm just trying to understand the physics of it.

That said, I've loaded up few more rounds that I plan to test my scope's elevation adjustments with. I want to know if 1 click truly is 1/4 MOA at 100yds. I figure a 6-10 MOA up/down adjustment at 100 yds should suffice. Once I rule the scope out as the issue, I just plan to build my own charts as Chris has suggested.

I'm in Indiana county just 1 1/2 hours north of you. I have the Infinity program too. I use in on my 6-284 and it's doing the same thing yours is. It's driving me crazy it would take forever to shoot at a target every 10 yards out to 1000 and how much money. That's why I bought the progam so I would know what to dial in and spend my time shooting hogs not burning powder. Email me maybe we can figure it out.. Shrpshtr30@aol.com
