Re: Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

I have the 9200 kit also. I would like to see a shot log along the lines recomended by Shawn Carlock. The other ideas put forth by bigngreen and buffalobob would be great too.

Russ
Do you have a reference to what Shawn recommends? is there a thread or article on it?


The Improved Rifleman's method of angel shooting is covered in Ward's article and it should be summarized with the appropriate diagrams

Re: Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

I really like the diagrams Buffalobob put up! One thing I have noticed on the binders is that most don't have a way to secure the pages your on. I have seen a couple that have a elastic strip that holds the corners down in the wind, I think that would be a major plus.

Re: Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

Here is my thinking up to this point.

The standard field logs have about 75 pages plus cover pages. So I assume that is a good design parameter.

Cover w/ LRH LOGO 9200 style
Water proof paper
1 page – owners name and ID
2 Basic Rifle information page – 5 pages assuming multiple rifles per page
Include Model, serial #, caliber barrel length , twist. Base MOA, Scope Reticle, Scope height and 5 lines of bullet loads -bullet make, weight and type, BC – G1, BC-G7, muzzle velocity
3. Drop Data sheets (cold bore deviation) page– 10 pages
4. Round count sheets 10 pages
6- Range cards -10 pages
7 plain lined/gridded 25 pages
8. vinyl pocket -5 pages- new
9. 1 Honey hole page - animal, number, date, gps can be blank page- new
10. Elk anatomy page- new
11. Game animal Body dimension page- new
12. Conversion table pages
13. Angle shooting improved rifleman page Cosine page- new
14 Existing sniper Wind page


Anywhere it says "new" then the company would need to design a new page otherwise the existing pages from other manuals can be used.

Jim, that is well thought out and an excellent start on specifics.

Re: Need help to design LRH Gear Shop range book

Idea's mentioned so far:

-Something to track kills and hits on animals - bigngreen

-Mounted in a zippered binder - bigngreen

-Should be made of water proof paper - Buffalobob

-Should have about 10-20 sniper range card sheets - Buffalobob

-Should have conversion tables for common things such as meters to yards, IPHY to MOA, Cosine Table -Modified rifleman formula - Buffalobob

-Should have a set of diagrams of common game animals chest dimensions - Buffalobob

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

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

-A good diagram of bone structure and organ placement - bigngreen

-A shot log along the lines recomended by Shawn Carlock - Russ Hatch

-A way to secure the pages you're on, an elastic strip that holds the corners down in the wind - bigngreen

-Post #12 by Buffalobob
------------------------------------------------------

-On the diagrams of the animals, is it safe to say that members of the deer family (Antelope, Deer - Whitetail & Mule, Elk, and Moose) are anatomically similar enough as far as vitals go? Meaning, a simple diagram showing broad-side, front, quartering to and away shots should all match up close enough as to add just a generic drawing rather than all of those for each animal? I suggest that simply because I'm assuming you'll want to keep this book as small/light as possible?

-Ringed binder so that pages can be added and removed easily?
