Default Guide to Determining Shooting Data

Just put this together - it’s not a historical document but all the procedures in it are definitely historical!

Special thanks goes to Hitman for letting me use his GUI charts so I could refigure them for Wolfpack!

I wish I knew the original source. I’d have to look back to Hitman’s GUI documentation to see if cited.

In your guide in your signature, you state the formula for "head on speed calculation" as:
((Mast (in meters) x 10) / time in minutes) x 0.03 = Target speed

In this new document in this thread it is:
H / C (x 4 if at 6x mag) x 100 / T x 0.0323 - OS

I definitely agree that the second one is correct (though 0.0324 is a better value and I would remove the 100 and change to 3.24 instead).
The first formula seems incorrect though.

Yeah the second one is definitely the correct one, need to go back and fix the first. Thanks for pointing that out!
