2. Draw A Picture Of The Engagement From Your Perspective

Range Card

1. In the main portion of the sketch, you will draw the engagement area. Each line will will represent a given distance from your postition. The distance each half circle represents is your choice (50M, 100M, or 200M). It depends on your maximum effective range for particular engagement area. 2. In the box at the end of the line that a structure is on, (building, dirt pile, car) you will record the distance, elevation that you will use for the distance and the windage you will use for a target if it appeared at that point. (The windage will change over time so this should be logged in pencil)

3. On the main sketch, ranges can also be noted for points of interest. The idea is log as much info as possible so when the stress level goes up, you give "Murphy" less of a chance at screwing up your shooting by figuring the formulas ahead of time. 4. Temperature- Remember, this can affect the trajectory if it changes over the course of a day.Stationary Target 1. Range:___________

6.Draw The Mirage
Small Target
7. On the target draw an example of where you normally hold your crosshares.

8. Draw the light direction in the form of a shaded arrow. 9. Draw the wind direction in hollow arrow form. 10. In the numbered shot boxes:
A. Record the elevation and windage you are using before you take each shot. This will be used to find the "Correct Dope."
B. After each shot call your shot and draw a small point indicating where you last saw your crosshares as you squeezed the trigger.
Large Target

11. Make a point of the actual location of the bullet impact after each shot. Then the shot will be numbered for comparison.

Top Right Boxes 12. Note the "correct dope" after the 10 shot group is completed. This will be
used later as a fastreference.
