    Then you can adjust your velocity in your ballistic calculator to match your actual inches of drop
    Not if I cover it in holes first mwah ah ah

    Dial for 400yrds
    Hit target
    Measure projectile strike on target (in inches) through your scope

    Change velocity to match actual projectile strike height

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Just to make it clear lads there's no hundred meter target
    If you can't splash the 1000 yard gong you will shoot no further.
    If you can't splash 1800 you shoot no further etc
    Im all for guys shooting further than they ever have but i can't have bullets going unseen.

    Righty -
    338 LM projectile 300 gr Sierra matching with 89.5 gr of Adi 2225
    300 Win mag projectile 208 gr with 67.5gr ADI 2213SC

    Not sure on the barrel length Rushy will have to measure his own barrels....

    In the unlikely event that he hasn't already got a good 100m zero, he can check a zero at a longer known distance (doesn't matter what as long as its known) and a click value come up at a longer distance someone with an app will be able to work out a MV on the day. That just leaves checking the click adjustment value and atmosphere - all good fun Im sure he'll be able to bribe guys to help out with the offer of a few shots through the 338.

    Thanks 7mmsaum, I only have confirmed drop data to 400 so I guess ammo requirements will depend on how many times I miss.
