You can call this a Rant if you want; but made me think:
I was at the range this past Saturday, verifying data between my “Dope Sheet” and actual results, a gentleman that was shooting a couple benches over, came over and asked why I don’t use a ballistic program that is available. (He then gave me a 5 minute sermon on an app for ballistics)
I replied that I prefer to use my own data because I know where it comes from and that I can trust it.
Having use FM 23-10 and FM 3.05.222 I can develop what I need and I know how I got the answers.
Am I out of Date?
Do other shooters make their own tables or rely on someone else to do their work?
If you rely on a ballistic program how accurate is it for you?
