In a bunch of words jumbled together to form incomplete sentences. Waist of money. There are a whole bunch of folks that will chime in any minute to tell you different so with that in mind, this is my opinion.
Drop tests at distance measured and reversed threw jbm or g7 free calculators will give you BETTER data for both establishing velocity, drops and verifying all at once. If any discrepancy exists in bc for instance it will be automatically compensated for within your individual rifle system within reason out to what ever range you tested.
There is no need to verify every 10 feet
You'll hear the tromp of there boots any minute , They will come to tell you to buy an expensive one, or to suggest a bunch of other gadgets to carry around and make this all way more complicated than it really is or to lecture on irrelevant technical details, But it doesn't change the facts or the reality. They will come, confident in there numbers..............................
Just so you know who is talking hear and now: I should probably add a signature line about being at odds with everyone as this is the case with increasing regularity, And just to kick the hornets nest (because i am in that mood today) The rem700 is not the best anything, the golden ring used to mean a good scope and the 308 aint the best sniper round even if it's the most common.
