    DougGuy, When I first used the software, I believe I was having the same problem. Just to make sure. Are you entering a new cartridge case by first selecting the menu item at the top left of the form titled. "Data Add, Change Load Save"? Then...

    DougGuy, QuickLoad does not "input a seating depth" as such. The Seating depth is a calculated value that uses the Bullet Length, Case Length and Cartridge Length values. Case Length - Cartridge Length + Bullet Length = Seating Depth. The...

    This is what the Precision Bullet Design and Evaluation software calculates 0.5435" as the maximum bullet length that will stabilize a 0.224 caliber bullet launched at 2000 fps from a 1:14 twist barrel using a Stability Factor of 2. Below is...

    Pietro, It appears that great minds think alike:bigsmyl2:. However, I am wondering if placing the insert on the rear of the sight would allow enough clearance when the ladder is flipped up. That is why I suggested that the insert be placed on the...

    Before attempting to permantly alter your sight, you might locate a thin piece of steel. Determine how much more height you need and then file it to the shape shown in the image below. Epoxy the insert in place and, If it works, you could then have...

    That sure is a beautiful rifle. It appears, from your image, that your 1123 yard sight setting for the Raton altitude and ambient conditions was 196 points. If you remember the temperature at the range, that would also be good. Also wind...

    When I went back to re enter the target range, I discovered that I had, by mistake, entered the barrel length in place of the sight radius. Sorry 'bout that. Correcting the two values increased the estimated sight setting for 1123 yards to 173...

    I might as well put my 2 cents in. Using the Precision Cast Bullet Design ~ Advanced software, these are the dimensions of the BACO Money bullet that I scaled from the Buffalo Arms catalog. I set up the bullet dimensions in the Precision...
