    Nope, no idea about anything like that.

    I was doing a private long range class at Legion OTG.

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

        I spent half the day Saturday mounting 6 S&B scopes to 6 of the student's custom rifles. Spent the rest of the day on the Multipurpose range zeroing the rifles that he wanted a 100yd zero on. Didn't hit the UKD Range until Sunday, and then we spent 9 hours there.

            The FBI sniper training book teaches..... Adjust elevation for recalculated horizontal distance and windage for slope distance. Reference:" Advanced Rifle Training For The Observer/ Sniper FBI Academy Firearmes Training Unit Quantico, Virgina ( Page: 46.)

              Nice. I definitely believe you guys, it just still makes my head hurt. But that's not very hard to make happen.

                It's just a simple trig. function. Take the decimal result of the cosine of the angle between the horizontal distance & the slope distance, multiply that decimal reading against the slope distance. that equals the distance you apply to the elevation turret. Apply normal windage to the slope distance.

                example: You're on top of a building. You range your target: 141.4 yrds. The angle is 45 degrees.
                Cosine of a 45 deg. angle ='s .7071
                .7071X141.4 ='s 99.98 yds.
                Set your elevation for a 100yrd. shot.
                Set windage for a 141.4 yrd. shot. Taking into account if it's a full value, 1/2 value, 1/4 value, etc.
