Re: trajectory help please...

Here ya go Grit....

Here's what you posted:


Here's the drop chart. The numbers track real well with your numbers.

You have no email address on your bio or I would have sent the spread sheet.

I keep things pretty simple. When you ground truth the chart you'll be ready to go.

Keep in mind that it is good for only the elevation, humidity, barometric pressure, up or down angle you were shooting and, the way you were holding your mouth the day you charted the numbers. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Sorry for the smallitity (new word I just invented), kind of hard on the eyes but is the best I can do in the time I had.:(

Also no quality control applied. Verify all number. Not responsible for any misses you make. Though, will take credit for any hits.;)

Len's right. You guys are fantastic!

Roy, I updated my profile to include an e mail. Please send me the spreadsheet. mybyky@yahoo.com

About the bc: The bc I was putting in the program (eskimo.com something, from this forum) is the one listed on the hornady website (what's it based on?). Adjusted bc?? The bc changes with altitude and velocity? How do I figure an accurate bc to plug into the programs?

Thanks gentlemen!!

I just realized I made a mistake. Let me clarify a couple things.

I realized I stated a five degree cant on my initial post. What I meant was I shot at a five degree inclination. What I want to do is get a match on a ballistics program I can save and vary as necessary. I don't know how much difference a five degree inclination makes.

Dave do you have a terminal ballistics program that calculates the drop in mils or did you do as I and calculat them from info from your ballistics program.
If your ballistics program does, what are you using?

Re: Dave KIng

I use the "Thing" and it calculates this for me.

Check this thread, it's listed as one of the programs in the first post.

Re: trajectory help please...

Len
Yep, there are.... But on the other hand [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Grit,
The program that Dave posted the results from, takes care of changing BC with environmental conditions. You enter all of the info, barometric pressure, temp, etc and it takes it all into account.

That's why I said that what I posted is good for the conditions under which you shot. Recall I said all you wanted was a "bonk".

With the program that Dave used, calcuate once, then enter the values for the day you are shooting, whenever it is, and you get a 'bonk' every time.

Me thinks that Dave gets a 'bonk' about every shot. Unless he forgets which bbl he has screwed on the action. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Regarding you 'cant'.

Angle is 5 degrees. Cosine of 5 degrees is .996

1000 yds * .996 = 996 yds. So at 1000 yds you hold for 996 w/a 5 degree up or down angle.

I'm not into the click thing quite yet, using a mil dot so I just nudge up/down as necessary.

There's a thing on that eskimo.com site that does all of the above for you.
