Formidilosus, Thank you, sir, for your time and patience to bring this to us.

Jordan, thank you, also, for your input.

We all have to start somewhere and at this later stage in my life I'm starting to understand MIL vs. MOA. I think I like MIL a whole lot more. grin

Care to go into some atmospheric inputs on the Shooter app? Absolute? ASM? ICAO? Enable Zero Atmosphere? MV Variation?

Correct.





Correction on "Correction Factor"

What is "Elevation Correction" and "Wind Correction" in the firearm profile?
This is used to correct for scope turret clicks that aren't quite what they say they are. For example, if you've come to realize your .25MOA per-click scope is actually .23MOA per-click then you'd put a correction factor of 1.08695652 (.25/.23) because you actually need to adjust more as you aren't quite getting a full quarter MOA per click. An asterisk (*) will be placed next to the angular unit when using these inputs to denote that the given value is corrected. Inaccurate click adjustments are more common than you may think. Don't take this for granted.

Nothing is absolute, wind, temp, chamber temp, cloud cover, angle. You can calculate all the variables you want, but get one thing wrong and your off target. Few scopes track 100%. Calculate, shoot, correct. The more you shoot the better you get, but no one gets its right all the time, I’m happy if I get it right some of the time. Turrets are fun, but they are only part of the game. There is always something to humble you.

I sent Rick a PM a long time ago requesting that this be made a sticky but got no response.
