Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

In another thread bigngreen said:

I would like to see a range book specifically for the LRH, the sniper ones aren't quite right and the BR ones aren't right.
bigngreen, can you be more specific? I met with a company at SHOT last week that can make us a custom range book for long range hunters. In fact they approached me on the floor saying they want to do so and could I give them some input into features to be included.

And others, please chime in, too.

My intent is to sift through the ideas of members for this project and then come out with my boiled down version picking some of your best ideas. I'll offer the book for sale in the LRH Gear Shop.

Re: Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

My thought was that LRH really is a blend of the BR, Tactical sports and Sniper craft, each keep careful records of each load and target hits. I have had a hard time finding a book that blends all those plus charts where you can track kills and hits on animals, after all that is what all this work is for. With the possibility of adding terminal performance and reaction to the hit also.
I found something real close last week and was going to send it to you but you beat me .

Put it in a binder like this one, 8541 Tactical with the LRH logo!!!!! It'd look sharp

Re: Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

A few early thoughts being as I have two of these and neither is quite right

Should be made of water proof paper
Should have about 10-20 sniper range card sheets
Should have conversion tables for common things such as meters to yards, IPHY to MOA, Cosine Table -Modified rifleman formula.
Should have a set of diagrams of common game animals chest dimensions

Should have about 10 clear envelope pages for drop charts etc to be put into.

Should have a set of pages to record field drop data and weather conditions for that data,

I might think about this some more.

This would be awesome. I would add to compile the data from actual animals taken not what the internet says. Have buck and doe, bull and cow sizes.
Also maybe a good diagram of bone structure and organ placement.

Re: Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

I have one of these

9200-KIT (Binder, Pen, Cover)



It has a lot of the right stuff in it but also has a lot of F-class stuff in it.


I also have one of these. It tells you how to call in artillery fire on elk once you get the herd spotted. It also tells you how to lay out an NDP incase the elk counterattack. I got it because it has a really lot of lined/grided pages for data or making range cards
