Thread: Quick reference ballistics card

  1. #1

    Quick reference ballistics card

    OK, i can't take credit for this, but i think it's a great idea.
    I tried my own loads for my 30-06 and 180 grain bullets up to 250 yards and found that my results were almost identical to the data i found on this site Ballistic Calculator GunData.org
    I was going to write it all down on a laminated card and tape it to my stock, like i have seen a lot of guys do in the states, but then i saw this idea.
    I zero my 30-06 to be on target at 200 yards, it also show's wind drift at 10 and 20 mph

    Cheers

    Been doing that for years now until phone ballistic apps came along!

    Thanks for this. I may get one engraved but with only the number of clicks out to 500 yards.

    Not that I know yet if I have enough left after 300!

    when you shoot deer out to 350 in 20mph winds do you dial or hold?

    i just set a chart on my lock screen out to 600m, 25m increments but i do wind to 5mph, its easy to multiply up if there's more wind. Press of a button and it springs to life.

    Perhaps i should have stated, it's on a fixed 8x56 S&B

    There are quite a few calculators online now, this one at Hornady is nice and simple to use:

    Really!!!!! Doesn't sound very ethical to me shooting deer out at 350 m in a 20mph wind
