    I think measured distance and only computer generated POI will be limiting. Empirical test would be best and will give you practical real world boolit drop information. This is of course post hunt as you either went last weekend, or will be going...

    The Type 99s are chambered in 7.7x58 (basically .31 caliber like an Lee-Enfield or Mosin-Nagant) and is comparable to 30-06 or 308Win in effectiveness. For reloading, its easier to load for than the Type 38s as you can use trimmed down and reformed...

    If ya reline it, you may even want to think about making it come back to life as a 30-20. Certainly does increase your choices of boolits/bullets. Others may correct my opinion on this one.

    How come no one has mentioned pulling the bolt and looking down the barrel? run a brush and some good bore cleaner through the barrel and see what you ave to work with internally. Collector or shooter . . . Barrel condition is still important.
