japhunter,

The 20 MOA rail all it does is help for the Vertical adjustment, it won't mess you up with matching your software trajectories.

Jap Hunter,
If you are having problems matching your trajectory these will be your biggest obstacles: Accurate muzzle velocity (backwards calculated from chronographed speed, and distance measured from the barrel), An accurate BC (not necessarily listed), and finally, insuring that your scope's click value is actually what it is advertised as. To check the adjustment value, zero your rifle at 100y/100m what ever you use as a standard, pick an aim point at the bottom of the target and in half or full turret revolutions verify the distance between group centers exactly what they should be in click values. Example: @100yds, 1MOA=1.047", change vertical adjustment up 10MOA=10.47", fire a group, hopefully your group is 10.5" high. This may take a tall target depending about your scope's elevation abilities, but an appropriate target (hung vertically with a plumb bob) will tell you wonders about your scope.
As previously mentioned, the difference of 1/3 of a degree of angle (20MOA) isn't going to make a noticiable difference in trajectory, even at 1000yds it's much smaller than even the best are able to shoot. You wouldn't be able to correct for it either because it is less than one click value on 0.25MOA or .1MIL adjustment scopes.

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

i have a question, maybe yal can help out
i understand correction for angle shooting, i am unclear if you use that correction for wind age adjustment as well
ie
i have the same shooting situation as in Ward Brien article
500 yard shoot
at 30 angle
lets say my my correction for 500 yard is 7 moa, so i take 7moa * .87 (cosign of 30)
= 6.09 moa is what i dial in on my scope

what iam asking is do you also do the same for windage adjustment
ie
lets say same shoot as above but have a 2moa adjustment for wind
would i take 2 moa * .87(cosign of 30) = 1.74 moa that i dial on my scope for wind adjustment?

Use the wind value for the full 500 yards.

Very good read ! but doesn`t the new rangefinders with angle compensation do all the math for you ? minus the wind, temp. and barometer calculations..
