Re: Ian, I need your help, please?

Thanks 700 for wanting to help. We`ve been home now from our trip for about 2 weeks.
I`m sorry about your e-mail to me. I deleted it before I found your post on this board. My server said to delete it if I was not sure of the e-mails origin. It referred to a 6.5x55 and I don`t own one, so I was a little scepticle to open the attachment. We`ve had some mean viruses in the past, so I don`t open everything now.
If you want, you could do a chart for me with the following information so I could do a comparison with mine whenever time allows.

1) 220gr. Sierra MK
2) 3125 fps at 15 feet from muzzle
3) 2.25 inches scope height above bore line
4) 300 feet altitude
5) 60 degrees F.
thanks, Warren.

I have sent you a copy of yesterdays email.

I realised too late that the hunting trip was last month, not this month.

Regards

700

700, thanks for the charts. I`ve tried to take a look at them, but my computer has a mind of it`s own sometimes seemingly. Will eventually get to check them out.
and again, thanks, Warren

Let me know how you get on with the ccharts. They were calculated using the ballistics coefficients on the Sierra Website. If you have a set of real world drops I might be able to add these to the ballistic stew.

Next time you are hunting in the rockies I will have you armed with a chart which will allow you to zero at your local range and then take angled shot at high altitude.

OK 700. That sounds great. It`ll be in January at the earliest before I can compare the charts to real world data.
Thanks again.
