I had my chronograph out and got some numbers (finally), went to JBL online and plugged in the necessary data, opened up Word Pad and made a few documents. I was printing them off today and made some smaller (abbreviated) ones that I'm hoping to get laminated and throw in my range box. Then I though I should take a pic of them with my cell phone and I can set it as the background pic (or wallpaper or whatever it's called) and I will have it there when I need it. So I took some pics.

As I was typing this I had another brain wave, why don't I cut out the charts and use clear packing tape instead of laminating them as I don't have a laminator.

I do it like that but usually also add in inches of drop before MOA, then scope clicks after, so I don't have to do mental gyrations if I'm in a hurry. Inches of drop in case I'm in even more of a hurry, so I can guesstimate/Kentucky windage.

Yeah, it can get a little crowded on my charts lol. Sometimes I'll print like yours but put the scope clicks and inches in red pen handwritten.

I also usually zero at either 300y or 400y if it's a gun intended primarly for long range boomer work.

I also made the same ones with inches and thought that MOA would be easier to use with the target turrets. I also made them with inches and MOA with 200 yard zeros. I have iSnipe and put the same data in and it's pretty much identical to JBL's output. That's nice to know.

You guys have lots of flat land out there for that kind of thing eh? my local range is 200 yds. thats the longest i can find around here in southeastern ontario. I would love to start long range shooting but you need a long range to start with lol. Are all the ranges out there of that kind of distance?
