This is a standard set up for our EOL packages.
Since my equipment is much older than your using. I have to rely on visual sightings to acheive angle degree, it is necessary for me to consult a known
trajectory scale for a given weight. also The wind factor if any, the the time of
day for possible correction for mirage if any. I'd pray for a perfect miss rather
than a hit that wasn't perfect.
Good Luck and keep them in the middle.
