Whats everyone's preferred way to have their DOPE available while shooting?

I've seen armboards from Sunrise Tactical, Hawk Hill for SPUHR and pic rails, less expensive Amazon armbands, taping their 3x5 index card to the stock, just taking a shot then looking at their DOPE book, COLE TAC cheat sheet, etc.

Personally looking to see if this is something i should get for myself (I also have a SPUHR mount)

I have cards that I velcro to the rifle that are specific to conditions (temperature) and various loads.

But I also have this for a drop Quick Reference Guide.

    I was leaning toward a setup like this, using the Hawk Hill.
    Do you ever find that your FOV is being blocked and hurts your shooting?
    No. At PRS, distances most targets are really hard to spot without some magnification. Backing the mag down and scanning through the scope works better for me than trying to find the targets unaided. And, if I am scanning unaided, looking directly over the scope gives me better ‘register’ than scanning from the side of the gun. Finally, you can easily push the card flat against the scope to get it out of your view. This is what I do on stages that don’t have distance changed that require me to write down drops.

    I like the cole tac card, bungee it around the scope of whichever rifle I’m competing with that day. And I can take the card itself off the velcro to easily write on while I’m sitting back behind the gun line.

    If you mean how do I get the dope I put on the card, I have the geoballistics app in my pocket at all times so if I do need to check I can pull it up real quick.

    I hate moving items from rifle to rifle (or removing them at all), and I also wanted something tough and physically flexible. I’m a varmint hunter.

    So I settled on a bunch of Cole Tac Cheat Sheets. Very happy.

    Pick your requirements, make your choices.
