You guys are right.
I have no idea what I am doing.
I new at this and I'm happy with MOPP ( Minute of pie plate )
I never said I don't use a chony. I use it when it is warrented.
by telling that shooter to debur his flash holes, neck turn, use a chrono to reduce SD, etc etc etc. That shooter needs a change to his load that will shoot consistantly tight groups FIRST. Then apply the tricks of the trade to tweek that last 10%. Period, bottom-line, end of story.
ummm yeah... now you can use a chrony.. that's all I was saying.
Load development like a ladder test or round robin. Do you really need to know how fast your moving until you find the "sweet spots" sure I guess if you are curious.
I guess you could always take all the load develoment form all the forums here and say well thats what they use so my rifle should like it too.
ES, SD all they is important once you narrow down your choices. To break out the chrony from the jump. Waste of time until you get a handle on what your rifle likes. IE: after a ladder or round robin test.
And not to stir the pot but "My Opinion" about a bullet straightning out
once it leaves the barrel is that a bullet has no brain and does not
correct it,s flight .If it starts out 1" to the left it will only get worse
due to outside forces (Wind,temp,humidity.altitude ETC) in a vacuum
if it starded out 1" to the left @ 100yrds it would be 2"left @ 200 and
10"@ 1000yrds so the best way to keep the accuracy at long distances
is to use bullets with the highest balistic coefficient that resist these out
shhhhhh O/C maybe someone has a line on smart bullets... you know like the tomahawk missle types.
I used to think that pitching an yawing ( not asleep yet ) had some validity but I always wondered how the bullet knew to straighten out on the intended path the driver pointed it at and not somewhere else.
I'll be the first to admit I'm wrong if someone can show me this happens. I have heard alot of guys say it but no one has proven it.
This poor soul is in the weeds so far that the sun is not even visable... What a pantload!!
I'm more than willing to test my skills against yours. ;-)
