    Who uses it , most of all do you trust it ?

    Would you set up your gun for a comp using it :D or do you only use it and later fine tune your setiings down range ?

    cheers

    Erm... i never trust it. Sometimes it's bang on ish, other times it's off... and it cant seem to account for odd shifts.

    I tend to use it for exploring possibilities, like changing the scope hieght or looking at what effect power changes have etc...

    Same as above posts!

    Ok to find out differences in scope heights and zero changes.
    Never rely on it as it is not accurate.

    Not having the time or space to do my range card past 25 yards its the only thing I have to work with.

    I use it the same as Rob for experimenting with scope hieghts, pelet weights and velocities, it is also a teaching tool for newcomers so that they can understand the principles of aiming of or dialing in.

    Know i'm swimming against a tide here but I do use it as part of an initial setup, after which i'll verify on a measured range. So far found it to be accurate.

    I use it religiously,

    Used it on every rifle I have had and it has never let me down.

    Speak as I find.

    I also found it near as damn it right on my aim points. Not tried it for dialing, just milldot aim points.

    As accurate as owt if you put in the right data. For me it's no more than 2 clicks off at 55yds.
    I use it all the time. What if I changed my zero range? Higher scope mounts? etc. I also use it for doing the interim ranges if I'm confident about the main ones.
