Hmmm....not sure what to think about the Coriolis. I guess I don't shot far enough for it to be a concern. Do people take this into account when shooting ELR? I am not knocking his comments, was simply surprised to see Coriolis mentioned as one of the things to keep in mind. Sadly this will invariably lead to all my none shooting, book reading, friends stating this as gospel....
