I just aim bottom of kill, its easier for the likes of me !
0.6 decimal inches, 0.4 decimal inches? How do we quantify that? If it works it works?
I am no great FT shooter, a degree in civil engineering helps me with some calculus, this one has me stumped.
Yes, totally agree. That principle now works for me.
Starting to wish I had never asked my original question. Still it got a few different attitudes and replies.
The philosophy of solidworks is that there is no wrong way to model an object. The same is true in this case. I shoot at the center, you shoot low. It is important that the target falls.

If I showed you some of the lofted extrudes I'd attempted you'd soon change your mind
I find the same works for thermal lift
Converting imperial to metric is no issue. Never need google or whatever for that.
Mixing the two together is the confusion." 0.6 decimal inches" A division of the inch is never a decimal. Who, apart from FT shooters talk imperial and metric as one?
Pass me that 20 mm spanner mate, what one is that? I only understand imperial. Ok mate, pass me the one that fits this nut.
Decimal inches is quite a common occurrence. I'm working with a multinational multibillion $ company that uses them in it's specs. I use 3d software which can use them (fortunately). It's nothing alien. Most software we use copes with oddities like that. That said there's inches are pretty much dark ages things and most of the world uses metric anyway... inches are really only handy if you want to crash 125million $ space probes into planets after 9 months of flight.
That said, it would be nice if the multinational multibillion $ company could consistently convert between them and metric rather than having errors up to 20% when they feel like it. Still it's nothing important, it's only biological engineering equipment.
Only FT Shooters can comprehend decimal inches.
We are not tied by convention
Bit of a heated argument at the last shoot we had,
“how far did you get that last target”?
“I got it 51yrds”,
“Well I got it 50yrds and 3ft”
“no your both wrong, it’s only 47m”
After Brexit we will HAVE to all use yards as it will be law
So for a target raised above the shooting position you have to aim slightly lower on the target?
Not always no. If its les than 15 yards and or 15 degrees, aim as normal.
Brian's 15/15 rule works well.
