Zero @ 100yrds- dial from there.

    OK...

    Then on the target turrets, I put a sticky paper cut from 1x3 label stock. I cut it so it covers the top half of the turret, but I can still see the bottom tick marks and moa numbers.

    I set the turret so it reads "0" at the 100yd zero, and mark the paper for 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9... etc. for all the range intersect points.

    It becomes a self made ballistic cam... and you don't have to keep track of a cheat sheet. It's always there.

    So I can range the critter, and dial the range in a few seconds.

    Works every time, and is cheap (.39 cents at Staples )

    This was a thread a while back where this idea was discussed. Scroll down to the pictures to see this in use. I also agreed there that making the moa #s visible would be nice. I would not use lable paper unless you were sure it would come off after being in place for a long time.

    They come off easily - I take the labels off when I change loads, or move the scope to another rifle.

    Did you scroll down past the first few posts? Those pictures are gone. These are the pictures you were looking for about 3/4 of the way down if you open all threads.



    Note that one wrap is missing some "0" athe the end of the numbers. These are picts of a wrap a member made from the spreadsheet I emailed them.

    Range it, Dial the clicks, squeeze the trigger, watch the dog fall, reset dial to ) and pick up your quarry.

    I prefer the clicks to hold over.
