Shooter for Android Question?

I have been using Shooter for a while now and it is a great program. I am having problems with the "sight height" setting. If I set it to 2" which is the measured height of the bore to the center of the scope and zero at 100 yds it still tells me to drop down .4 mils. If I set it at "0" and zero at 100 yds then it stays at zero.

Shouldn't your zero stay at zero? What am I not setting up correctly?

Thanks!

Sight height is in firearm profile. Zero range (all mine are at 100yd) is in ammunition profile. Make sure zero height is 0. Thats for of you sighted in 3" high at 100 or something similar. I'm not sure thats the fix, but it may be.

i was gonna say the same thing. Make sure "zero height" is set at 0 more than likely that is your problem

Re: Shooter for Android Question?

Thanks everyone! You were all correct somehow I started entering the values backwards for sight-in vs sight-height. I updated it and tweaked the variables for atmosphere a little and it looks like it is right on now.

Now it is time to go shoot it way out there!


My goal for this hunting season is a deer or a javalina at +500yds. Not too far for most on here but it will be my furthest yet.
