    Know that the drop chart is for standard conditions and will only be accurate if those standard conditions are met......you have to figure out the adjustment if conditions are different from standard. Temperature, alltitude, humiity, barrometric pressure and incline all make a difference.....but really only makes a difference past 300 yards (except for incline...it can be a big difference at closer ranges).

    As for bullet consistency I am reloading and have very good accuracy and have been loading each bullet by making sure everything is the same. When I finish the case ammo weighs the same to the grain. This takes a little more time, but it shows up when you go out to shoot. Plus it gives me a great big smile when it all comes together. Again thanks for all the great info..
