By Ted Hoeger “@Jack Master” Gone are the days of doing long mental math on the shooting line or in the field.  Ballistic calculators have advanced shooting to a new level that make things easy on the brain. The only downfall to a ballistic computer is being able to adjust to changing wind direction and speed …
