    Help leica 2000 b setup

    Hey team, maybe just my sleep deprived brain but I need a local guru if possible, picked up a Leica 2000 b off a mate only he can't find the instructions.
    I did a quick Google search and found the downloads but fook me I'm struggling to comprehend it all.
    Also I couldn't find the ballistic compensation chart in the onlibe download.
    Is there anyone based in either Chch or North Canterbury that could help me ?

    Imagine if all the hunter gatherers 10,000 years ago were like "my spear didn't come with any instructions".

    The human race would have been f*cked.

    Yep. Hunting has come a long way alright.

    If you get stuck for info let me know

    A call on the phone is the easiest way to help you as the setup is quite technically oriented

    @dannyb I can send you some screen shots of the manual, I'll send you ballistic charts through PM if it helps. Or you can give me your email which would be easier. Leica really made it a pain in the arse to setup, tried to get too fancy.

    @7mmsaum I only ever use the EHr function, temp and pressure and ignore all the other stuff. Are you the same?

    Not quite,

    I use my binos for a .22rf, a.223, a 7mm08, a 308, two rem mags, a 338 and then any other rifle that I’m working on

    I get all the data and input it into knights Armament “ BulletFlight” and then dial up the required MOA

    Can then use any rifle and any distance without worry

    If I only had one rifle (had a wee panic typing that) then yes Leicas own internal ballistic software would suit to 1000yrds, but 1500yrds would be better as 1000 is very common in Sika country, - and unfortunately so is the wind

    Is this where you got your downloads from? https://en.leica-camera.com/Sport-Op...ster/Downloads

    Maybe get some sleep and go through it all methodically in the morning. After a coffee. Or four.

    The ballistic charts start way down the bottom, on page 178.

    Hmmm mm according to this the pre set ballistic curves are nowhere near what my 270wsm is capable of. Guess I'll have to stick to EHR and a dope chart (not the end of the world),or am I missing something ?

    That Leica chart isn't in MOA. Looks like inches?

    Yeah but even if I convert the inches to moa it's not close enough that I would use it

    your trajectory would be between US1 and US 2 I think

    Best thing is put a target at 500 yards and see which one of the two work best for your rifle and ammo. Retest at a further distance if necessary but you should be within 6 inches or better of what you are aiming for on the vertical plan.
