Response to It's just a lot of work.

but I find the hardest part of all this is formatting the data collected or generated in a way that is EASY and FAST to use while in the box, on the clock.

We're all familiar with the "dope sheet", but when you start adding in dimensions of known objects (Gamo hinge width, base width, cinder block dimensions, dimensional lumber...) you have find that number, and run it through yer brain computing yer firing solution based.

Ive been including lines and circles of sizes likely to seen on the range during match, on my ranging target, and record the widths/hieghts seen on the reticle. adds a lot of time to my scope setup, but I think its worth it knowing how big a 1.5 inch KZ should look thru the scope at a given yardage.....

Also all that stuff on the sighting "target" gives you many points to check against and IMO helps establish better ranging data.....

Lotta work up front, but I think it saves you a lot of hassle when its your turn to shoot........
