Going Inside the Numbers

Many shooters attempt to create hit data (Data On Prior Engagement) utilizing a ballistic chart of pre-printed data points based on the basic ballistic solver parameter inputs; bullet diameter, bullet weight, muzzle velocity, ballistic coefficient, yada yada yada. I get it. It can be done, but it is neither predictable nor repeatable because you are working the problem from the wrong end. Don’t start with solutions. Start with problems.

Eliminate the Cumulative Errors of Precision Rifle Shooting

If one is “outcome-oriented”, an impact on a piece of steel smaller than the actual torso of a man is a wonderful feeling, especially when followed up by a rapid second impact. It was Predictable because we took an empty space at a firing line, occupied it with our shooting gear, loaded a rifle, dialed elevation on a turret and hit with a cold-bore shot. It was Repeatable because we replicated that impact. But to a great degree, we are not outcome-oriented, we are “process-oriented”, and constantly striving to improve our processes and, if not consciously, subconsciously we are eliminating errors, one-by-one, and grow as shooters.

Predictable Weaponized Math and “X-Factor” Voodoo

It’s voodoo.   Algorithms utilize our input parameters and spit out numbers representing ballistic come-up.  That is, AFTER the algorithm bounces our bullet’s performance characteristics off the atmospherics conditions provided by link-up to Bluetooth devices that use other algorithms to spit out numbers representing atmospheric condition.  Absolute voodoo I tell you.  No way to figure …
