This poll really needed a multiple answer option.For ranges beyond what your gun is zeroed for, do you
- Dial for the yardage using handheld software generated data aided by weather meter etc.
- Dial for the yardage using drop chart data developed by field testing without electronics help
- Use a graduated reticle
- Use a custom Ballistic Drop Compensating turret
- Pass on the shot
Like I've always said, life starts to get complicated beyond 600 and very complicated beyond a thousand.Use ballistic software and charts...depends..if im doing western hunting vs shooting at the range, elevation and temp changes a lot in a day depending what im doing...its hard to have charts for every environmental condition, new mv for every temp and elevation...its a long *** book of dope. its easier but still accurate enough to use a TRUED ballistic computer. I put a emphasis on trued because in my experience at longer ranges...say past 6 hundo using a 300 win with 200gr pills, if the software isnt trued your drop gets more and more off the further you get.
