    Now that i've got my average mv using a chronograph. I put it into my ppc software i don't have a kestrel yet so my question is should i leave the field conditions set as they are or would it be a little more accurate to get my local elevation were i'm shooting and program that only and leave everything else the same. Thanks jeremy

    The more data you can give it the better off you'll be.

    I use very simple rules to fill in the field conditions.

    For temperature I check to see if water is frozen. If it is, then I enter a temperature less than 32 degrees. If it is not frozen, then I check how many shirts and coats I am wearing and enter a temperature that is consistent with that. T-shirt weather is about 75-80 degrees for me.

    I take off my hat and look up in the sky and see if there is water on my glasses and if there is then I enter a humidity of 90%. If there isn't then I enter about 50%.

    For barometric pressure I just let it calculate that based on altitude.
