I am surprised more of you didn't choose holdover. Just remember that when you dont have balistic calculators, charts for that load, a bdc recitle, or etc., that the ability to use holdover at long ranges will be a valuable asset.

I voted for "Dial using ballistic software". However, it depends on the situation... If I have the time to go this route, I will use it. But if time is of the essence, I will use a hold over from a data card.

I was at a night shoot about a month ago. We engaged targets from 200m to 510m. I dialed for the mid-range and used hold overs from there as it was a timed event.

I dial for all my long range shots. Making sure my inputs into the software are solid by validating my rifle. Then just print a range card for the area Im hunting(temp, elevation, etc.). Has worked for me
