How long does it take to find our drop data for a target range? If we need data quickly, most shooters are using some type of paper chart.

Frank is a legend in the sport. Nuggets of knowledge just flow out in these podcast. I teach people to shoot long range for a living, and I spend many a morning listening to Frank and his guests.

Love what your doing with length of pull. I run all my guns short and I’m 6’2”. Couldn’t agree more about “avoiding the hunt.”
