Re: Degrees Of Rifle Accuracy by Ian McMurchy

I would be highly obliged if some long range shooter would advise as to what would be the difference on point of impact if one is too use rifle on higher altitude and cold weather condition ( could be-20 degree), at present I am using a Blaser R-93 30/06 Professional in synthetic stock using a 180gr Winchester Acca Bond with Ziess 2x8-42 Duralit adjustable Red dot at present my rifle is sighted 1.50 inches high at 100yds which shoots around 4 inch below at 200 now do I need to adjust scope for this hight and cold weather conditions or use a lighter bullet. the are around where I am is around 2500 to 3000 ft above sea and the place where I am headed would be 10to12 the range would be 250 to 300 yds.

Re: Degrees Of Rifle Accuracy by Ian McMurchy

First, you would be best served by starting your own thread in the appropriate sub forum:

Rifles, Bullets, Barrels and Ballistics - Long Range Hunting Online Magazine

Doing that will see to it that more people see your question, thus increasing the chance that you will receive the answer that you are looking for.

As to your question, use of a ballistics program would help you get the answers you are looking for. You can find an example of one online here:

JBM - Calculations - Trajectory (Simplified)

The information you obtain from the calculator is not likely to be exact, but it will be close. You will still need to verify the data and fine tune your zero by shooting at distance.
