Froggy

Froggy is an old and dear friend of mine. He has an interesting background which I'm not a liberty to go into. However, he is a Shooter, both with firearms and a camera. If you are interested, you can view his imagery at the following link:

I have 2 of Ward's ACI's on my specialty handguns and they have always been spot-on. I also use Exbal loaded in a pocket PC for field use.
Don't have one of his C-Level's yet:eek: though-Need to put that on the to-buy-list.

Thanks for making practical stuff for us.

Angle Cosine Indicator

I've used Ward's Angle Cosine Indicators for 3 years now, own his C-Level and have also taken his long range shooting class in 2007. The Cosine Indicator, when combined with a ballistic program, such as Exbal Software, is an invaluable tool for consistently hitting targets on up or down angles, even at extreme ranges. Once a shooter learns how to use this system, it is extremely precise and with some practice, you'll be amazed at how successful you'll be at hitting long range targets, under any situation. If you are new to long range shooting or want to learn a few more tips, I'd recommend taking Ward's Personalized shooting school and using the Angle Cosine Indicator. It is money well spent.

Re: Angle Shooting - Correcting For The Effects Of Gravity by Ward Brien

Ward,

Thank you for you post on Angle Shooting.

There is something that has bothered me about the standard doctrine for angle shooting. The theory behind the doctrine is that when shooting on an angle the flat line distance from the shooter to the target is less than the actual distance between the shooter and the target. Every time it has been explained to me, the compensation for the angle is needed because there is less flat line distance for gravity to affect the bullet's motion. However, gravity's affect is cumulative over time and not distance. I'm not a physicist but would that not suggest that gravity should still have the same affect on the bullet when shooting on an angle as when shooting on a flat line?

If this is true then the bullet would be accelerated by gravity when shooting at a downward angle and impact high as the standard doctrine claims. Now, when shooting at an upward angle, would gravity decelerate the bullet causing the impact to be low?

I have not found a good explanation for this yet. If you could point me to something that explains this I would be very grateful.
