    I have been getting more educated on shooting as noticed with my question on paralax.
    IN researching it I came across this Nikon program called Spot ON ( google nikonhunting and look for their spot on program) It is on line and is an interative program developed around their scopes.
    I am sure there are lots of ballistics programs out there.
    This one happens to have my scope in it - Since it is a BDC system it gives me more information on the BDC aim points

    One of the things I did not realize is how much velocity difference there is between sea level and 5000 ft where I live now. ( MAkes sense when you think of air pressure - just did not realize it till I saw it.

    Lots to learn

    sorry need to update - It is Prescott now- just moved

    Loved Oregon but after 13 years Could not take the politics of the region
    But now - everyone loves guns ( Found out most my neighbors carry or have weapons) , open carry most places, Hunting is is a big thing. Education is better.
    Don't have to worry about the mayor being in a gay affair.
