Re: Long Range Shooting and Rain?
Michael and Bob are both spot on here. Trajectories flatten out due to reduced air density, bullets make it to the target just fine, and you DO get wet. We got absolutely hammered at Perry during the NRA Championships two years ago, worst conditions I've ever seen there. Biggest complaints I had, all had to do with the fact that the bullets tore large, un-paste-able (?) holes in the soggy targets, you couldn't keep the water out of your sight apertures or off your shooting glasses, and your shooting jackets wound up smelling like a wet dog. If you had a diopter sight or used a front lens like a tiger eye, you were just flat out hosed. But no, the bullets do just fine in the rain!
