    Changed Berger B.C.

    Quote: "The .30 cal 210 BC of 0.575 is a mistake. The real value should be 0.616." In order to get ExBal to agree with my real-world drop, I had to fudge the B.C. down to .615 (from the previously advertised .640 and .631) Kinda satisfying to know I came to the same answer with my limited...

    Nosler 165 gr. accubond and H1000 powder.

    A visit to the Hodgdon Website: http://www.hodgdon.com/data/rifle/300winshortmag.php#top shows that a bit faster powders are more suitable for the 165 gr bullet, which is (in my opinion) a bit light for the 300WSM (unless, for example- you are hunting varmints at close-to-medium ranges, and...

    .300 Win.mag./H-1000

    H-1000 is my go-to powder for the .300 Win Mag. I am running 83.5 gr H-1000 with the 180 TSX, getting 3150 fps. I'm sure your load is safe, it's almost always safe to substitute a lighter bullet, and definitely safe to substitute one of the same type and brand, but lighter weight. They shot...

    MOA reticle versus Mildot...

    My US Optics SN-3 has an MOA reticle, which is actually a Shooter's MOA reticle, and the adjustments are in Shooter's MOA, as well. I actually like it better than a "True MOA" reticle, as it simplifies the ranging formula. Also- although the Mildot Master is designed to work in both Mils and...

    .300 Winchester Magum Bullet Choice - Expanded

    Jon, Thanks for the suggestions, and for taking the time to reply. I'm with you, I really thought it was some kind of Garbage-in,garbage-out problem, and as you said, normally, one would be happy just to have a functioning, real-world drop chart... but I want to know WHY, dammit. Yep...

    .300 Winchester Magum Bullet Choice - Expanded

    I have a PACT Chrony, which I have mainly used at sea level, so let's stick with sea level data for now. 180 Balistic Tip, .507 BC, 80deg F, Zero ft Density Altitude, 3080fps 100yd zero, 1.95 inch sight height. My USO SN-3 adjusts in Shooter's minutes, not true MOA, so all my figures are in...

    .300 Winchester Magum Bullet Choice - Expanded

    I have shot it from 0ft to 6000ft density altitude, I shot across a crony, I checked my scope to be sure it really tracks 1/4-inch per click, and ran my real-world results thru ExBal... in order to get my computer fantasy to match up with my real-world data, I had to fudge the BC down to .415...

    .300 Winchester Magum Bullet Choice - Expanded

    [ QUOTE ] Unfortunately, they are not. You can't believe Barnes' advertised BCs. The 165 TSX is going to have a lower BC than the 165 BT/AB and it'll be a good shot lower than the 180 BT/AB. If you want to stretch the legs of that rifle, the plastic-tipped 180's or 200 AB are going to make...

    SOLD/EXPIRED Shepherd V-1's and P-2

    Re: Shepherd V-1\'s and P-2 There is no "Shepherd" software, per say, but I use ExBal on the PC, and with my PDA, to compute trajectory tables for them. http://www.perry-systems.com/index.html I took it one step further, and came up with a yardage value for the top, middle, and bottom of...
