Here is the info we just called on the calculator to generate.
At the very top is the elevation we skipped over on the load definition page. You can go back and enter it if you want but I don't know quite what benefit it is. In fact it will muck things up if you try to display the same chart with a 200 (or whatever) yard zero.
Your PBR has been calculated for you. Here it is 259 yards and your MPBR is 304 yards. This means that if today, you are hunting coyotes like Remingtonman25-06 you adjust your scope when you head out as though you wanted to shoot 260 yards. About 2 MOA+ 2 clicks. Then if you see a coyote out to 304 yards you simply aim dead center up and down. The bullet should not fly higher than 3" above the line of sight and drop to 3" lower than the line of sight at 304 yards. These numbers will change with flatter trajectories or larger or smaller kill zone radii.
Take a few moments to look at the chart. There is alot of stuff going on here but I'm sure you are familiar with most of it.
Now again lets focus on the come-ups in clicks and in MOA= clicks columns.
We long range shooters shoot at 400 yards fairly often. It would be silly to sit there counting,1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 clicks. Or was it really 45? One extra click at even this range is a miss on a ground squirrel mellon shot.
Instead of counting clicks use the numbers and marks on your turrets to simply turn 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, MOA and click, click, click, click. DONE.
If you then see a coyote at 700 yards simply go up to the next full MOA (that would be 6) and go up from there. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. (or 1 moa short of a full rotation if you have 15 MOA turrets), breathe, aim, squeeze. DEAD YOTE!!!
Yes you will have to figure in for wind but the adjustment should be all the same.
Now lets look at a simple range card.
Here are the basics. If you dont have a Mil dot reticle then don't select this option. You can also highlight and copy and paste this chart directly into a microsoft excell spreadsheet with little effort. You can then recalculate for different temps and inclines of shooting and paste this stuff into the same spreadsheet. Then you can scale it down so when you print it and cut it out it will fit on the non cheek side of your stock.
OK I'm stopping here. I'm tired again and it is 6:15 a.m. I might get 2 hours sleep before the kids get up.
Let me know if you have any questions Roy or anybody else. I hope this helps someone.
