Default Re: Some math and stats for Sav17

Hi Guys,

I now realise where my confusion was created,I wrongly thought that the bullet travelled in a straight line from below the scope to converge with the point of aim.So in my tiny confused mind the bullet travelled from below the scope on an upward trajectory until it converged with the point of aim and continued on this upward trajectory until it lost momentum and started to drop(please dont laugh duhh!!!)in effect ,if the rifle was zeroed at 100 yards you would be low to 100 and high afterwards,oh dear i feel so thick .
But now you have shown me that the projectile follows an arc "eureka" it all becomes clear,just goes to show really without the very basics you will never be able to understand,like trying to read before you learn your ABC,s. Your enlightened and much more knowledgable friend..................Richie
