| | I believe differently! Every one of my varmint rifles and my large game hunting rifles have a range drop card/windage card taped to the stock for ready reference. All of the computer ballistics programs will generate range drop and windage drift only if one can input muzzle velocity and ballistics coefficient of the bullet being used. Those range cards are invaluable to making first shot longer range kills. The use of recorded actual muzzle velocity is only possible by using a personal chronograph. ..... Big Cholla

Most of us who have chronographs are reloading geeks and enjoy sweating largely trivial things for their own sake because it's FUN to us but rarely - if ever - makes a lot of difference in the field.
