    Rifle Scopes Erector controls

    Why noone explored switched knobs. Elevation changed with windage so you would actually turn knob up to raise impact, turn left to move impact left. Sure the mechanism would be more complex but i guess it should work. And for the USAF you can simply do a "ccw" version where up is down and down...

    Advanced Marksmanship Using bullet trace for accurate compensation

    Using a spotter and bullet trace it's relatively easy to get onto target however from our recent shooting session we were unable to compensate for small amounts. For example shooting at 300 or 500m we weren't able to see bullet holes due to severe mirage and sun in the face however bullet trace...
