Sooo I'm trying to figure out this program and here is my dilema.
On my preliminary drop tables the system calls for what seems like twice the amount of adjustment that is needed.
100 yard zero
200 yards 3 mph wind from 3 oclock calls for .3 up and .1 right...shot high and right...took adj out of scope and all is well.
350 yards calls for 1.1 mils up and shot for no wind. Hit .5 mils high and we did trajectory validation which seems to fix the drop table but changes speed to 4214???????
Shooting a 22 BR at 3230 fps. 55 grn hornady v max, 30gn 4895
Thanks for your help and let me know if I need to give more info, Grin
Velocity...3230 (5 shot ave. from brand new CED)
BC..... .255 (from exbal)
Alt...854 ( from local airport website)
Scope height...1.89 (measured per LRH recomendations)
Unchecked box and entered Kestrel readings ( not too sure if I have this correct due to reading about setting Kestrel to 0 for Alt. reference)
5 shots for 350 yards, group is approx 3 inches, all were high and right which is where i came up with .5 mil corrected adj.
Due to group size I dont think wind was a factor. Shot at 3in dot and cross hairs pretty much covered dot. Pretty confident in rifle just not the software. Am using this rifle as trainer for 300WM(Sept moose/bou hunt,gotta be ready.
I cant think of anything else but I'm studying more about the baro/kestrel relationship. Basically I watched Mr. Carlock's video to help fill in info.
Measured 5.5 inches high to center of group..... 2 1/4 group size.
FPS were taken at 67 degrees so I think the change in Temp should have been taken into account by the software right?
I did enter all of the current weather factors at the time of shots.
Scope is a USO but I have not tested the knobs to be sure they are true.
