    That is part of my problem, HFT I understand and love. FT is new to me, guess I am over thinking things. Conor, for me gave the best indication of inclined shooting. Aim low. The rest will come with my previous experience in other disciplines.

    Pavel, is one of the best FT shooters in Bulgaria, he shoots with a robots head. I work with a Bulgarian mental hospital, Pavel/ Dominus knows I have a room available for him at all times.:D
    Happy christmas to all. G

    If you want a bed in the hospital, something can be arranged. :eek:
    I will give you a guided tour first.
    A one way ticket is fine.:rolleyes:
    Robf and Coner can just continue with my learning curve. No cost, no beds in crazy wards.

    Have a good xmas mate. Best and sincere wishes, G

    You never asked. There's no way I can know what tortures you.

    RobF does not mislead one value. This is not a cosinus function. It's just a number that is inserted in the most elementary multiplication gives a true answer. It may be quite different. For example, if I want to get the decision in clicks instead of MOA. And yes, it works flawlessly. I have been using it for 4 years and I have not misled me. This in no way fits your rifle.

    A master class I think.
    Berty gives them as well.
    Merry Xmas to two great shooters

    True, my friend. I never asked. ;)
    Nothing tortures me, things often puzzle me but never torture. :rolleyes:
    Remember, not so long ago I understood none of the Bulgarian language. I practised Bulgarian so that I could attend meets, understand safety briefings and compete. My passion for the hobby forced me to learn Bulgarian.
    You know how the Bulgarian logic goes. If you ask a question, you are classed as stupid. To be illiterate in Bulgarian, then ask questions!!!:D

    Now get that 3D printer working. I expect a inclination meter befor New Year.

    Regards Gary

    An easy way to look at the true pellet drop click differences between different ranges is to use the trajectory calculator on airguns.net and enter your balistic details but enter 0.0001 as scope height and 10 yards as the zero distance. The table then shows you the click values for pellet drop with the scope offset factor removed.

    These click differences, for example between 50 and 47 yards, are the amount of clicks you need to dial down from a 50 yard setting to strike at the correct height on a target at an angle that generates a gravity perpendicular distance of 47 yards. This works for all ranges and applies regardless of actual scope offset from bore.

    If we look at the 50 yard/47 yard target example the true pellet drop difference is 5 1/4 moa clicks - that's with a zero scope height. The click difference between 50 and 47 yards with a 3 inch scope height is 3 1/4 moa clicks. Even beyond the zenith of trajectory the effect of scope height means that dialing for the angled 50 yard target as though it were 47 on the flat will never be quite enough of a correction.

    So, given the target is over 15 degrees, up or down.
    Difference in clicks from 47 - 50y with high mounted scope is 3 x 1/4clicks or in my case 6 x 1/8th, that's about, roughly 18mm difference?

    Simon your scope height will have nothing to do with any angle related correction you'll have to make. All you will need to correct for is the true drop difference.

    The true drop differential between 47 and 50 yards (8.4 exact, 777 FPS, 0.023) is 0.6 decimal inches. Drop difference relative to line of sight with a 3 inch scope height is 0.4 decimal inches. This is how a high scope takes clicks out of the corrections required at long range on the flat.

    I apologize, I do not understand your units (I grew up with a metric system)
    In my case, if the slope is 15 degrees at 50m, I will have a 0.5MOA correction, and at 47m it will be 0.47MОA, which in both cases is exactly 2 clicks. That's exactly why I do not need any over-exact calculations.

    Thanks Pavel, I, the novice understand that.
