    Ok im really stressing about getting Vortex the correct info for my turrets. I chrono'd a bunch of rounds and found my average fps of 2963. I then ran that average through a true velocity equation and ended up with a true velocity of 2973 fps. The problem is that i dont have the area to perform a trajectory validation for my round, if i send them this true velocity along with the other pertinent info should i be ok?

    My guess is you'll be okay(it's not something worth stressing about) but I doubt your turrets will be accurate. You may get lucky, but I've needed to tweak the data on every drop chart I've ever made. Too many variables to guess at.
