Four different target sizes
Practice MIL or MOA ranging on four different target sizes. A 12" X 12" swinging plate, a 30" X 18" knock-down plate, 48" X 48" steel knock-down plate and a regulation 72" X 19" knock-down plate.
Ranges include uphill/downhill shooting, temperature variations over the course of a day, and differential wind challenges. The .223 courses offer moving targets, targets under partial cover, and hostage situations.
The stages should be used to get a "feel" for changing conditions. The data is not meant to be used to practice with a caliber, but can be used to understand how conditions affect different calibers. The stages are an extension of the classroom sections. Getting a good score is only part of the experience.
In all you get over 300 different ranging exercises with variable wind and other atmospheric conditions.
Every serious shooter should understand minute of angle and exterior ballistics. Learn how to use the reticle to estimate range, adjust for wind, how to use a range card and engage moving targets in Classroom modules. These subjects and more are also explained with interactive tests.
"Your program is fantastic for just running through calculations and doping a scope. Since using your program, I have become even quicker at ranging my targets. I've gotten so accurate, thanks to you, that I'm now within 6-8" of accuracy without the aid of a range finder. I'm now shooting about 94% accuracy on first shots at 600+ yards. Almost as good as my service years. " Todd G. Florida
