I thought of buying them but decided to make my own instead. Gave me much more room for data and I can have as many as I need for other rifles/loads.

Excel is your friend. I can send you the file if you would like it. Send me a PM if you do.

Used a wax highlighter on yardage number and increments at either X33 yards or X00/25/50/75 for each line. Wind is simply half distance at 8mph on my rifle.

Thanks, I'm going to use your idea. I'd been mulling around how to do the 25yd, increments for the flip cap but hadn't seen it done before now.

I've been using this template for around two years now. I didnt like the 100yd interval and felt there was a better way to utilize space for more data/precision. If I'm in a situation that requires a precise shot, 100yd intervals only work out to 400-500 before the gaps can cause a pretty substantial miss with bad math.

I make 4 per load and color code them (15deg- white for super cold, 35deg - light blue for ice/cold, 55deg - light green like spring, 75deg - red for hot) and store them with rifle case/data book. Data and other info on back for reference. In Spring, it's easy to stack two into cap and swap if temps warm or cool substantially. Easy swap out when needed.

If you would like me to send my template, I can send via email. It will print complete page of discs and can be scaled to fit most caps.

And @AHC222 is right: there is something weird in how Excel handles "circles". They need to be slightly taller than wider so that they print correctly round (not oval).

I have an excel spread sheet as well that I sized to fit inside vortex defenders.

I have made up and laminated dozens of these for myself and others:

That would great, I did a small data card that was laminated to the bell of my handgun scope when I was in Alaska in 25yd increments out to 500 yards. I shot with it out to 300 yards to check and make adjustments. My last year there, I took a nice caribou at 230 yards according to the optical range finder. I didn't know then, 25 years ago, a tenth of what I have learned since about ballistics. My experience with Excel and computers taught me that the sometimes the printer and drivers can screw up the finished product. I'm sure I can make the adjustments to make it work for me. I'll PM you with my e-mail address.

Hello AHC222, stole your idea and made this.....View attachment 7157848 As you can see it's a small caliber as I am new to the game. We, in the Netherlands, have to start with a small caliber, when we start with this sport.
Excellent layout. - I will be trying this this weekend.

By the way - is the CPRN, the Fiocchi or the CCI? How do you like it?

Made this in excel. For some reason it looks vertically compressed, but prints perfectly round with all text visible. Works well for me.

A big thanks to AHC222 for sending me his template in Excel and to everyone else that posted here and other places with ideas. I was having all kinds of problems prior, but with his template I was able to create this for my Vortex E-10 eye pieces. The only issue I am having is get the circle and the text at the top to stay locked together as one shape and the whole shape group to sit behind the text. More google and youtube in my future. Over all I am happy with it.

AHC222 deserves the credit as he sent them to me originally. For those that download it, it has two files that are basically the same. Each template is made of 3 layers so that you can change each layer to suit your needs. I am not an Excel expert, but a little Google foo got me started. If someone makes it better please send it to me or post it here.

Like others I made my own. This is a sample from when I was first experimenting to see how much data I could fit. Disregard the data itself, of course.
