Re: Precision Shooting 1-Part 2: Optics, Data and Logic
Thank you Ward for the very informative article. I am, however, still confused by the following statement you made concerning the Shadow Effect:
If the sunlight is behind you, it will cause a .25 moa drop. If you zeroed your rifle in sunlight, and you then shoot in cloud cover or heavy overcast, the bullet’s point of impact will be low, .5 moa. This is caused by “Shadow Effect.”
If you take away the environmental cause of a .25 MOA drop (sunlight behind), wouldn't that result in the gun shooting higher, not lower? What am I missing?
