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.

Re: Varmint Survey-click dial or hold over

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.
FNG-- I have Leupold scopes with target turrets
