Re: A new spin drift and coriolis question (I think) Exbal
In my opinion, spin drift AND coriolus change a wee bit in differing conditions. However, not to the same extent that drop is. So what I am saying is that SD and CE are a farily concistent issue.
Forget the calculator, get out there and test it to see how much there is and use that info rather than the calculator.
The calculator will be more accurate than you, your perception of the conditions, and (this is a big one) how plumb your scope was mounted.
Once you determine how much combined right hand impact you see, you can compensate for these issues more reliably than your software can tell you. This is because your software has NO idea how plumb your scope is. There is "I think it is plumb" and there is "It really is plumb".
Let the paper tell you and not the software. Leave the software for calculating drops values and wind values. Then you can add or subtract these other factors.
Of course, this works out to 1K. Once you step out to 2K, these variables become MUCH larger, to the point where software utilizing CE and SD is usefull.
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.
