Batteryless tools for firing solutions



  • Yes, those new newfangled handheld computers are the bomb; however, it is good to have tools that will work even after the EMP attack.
    The 2 tools I have and use are the Mildot Master and the Dope Disc.
    With a little practice you'll still be able to hit your target even when the batteries die.

    Here are links to their respective sites:

    I've not used the "dope disk." I'll have to check it out.

    The mildot master isn't really computing firing solutions like the others. Rather, just giving you range and angle, etc. Same can be achieved with a 10th mil relation chart too. I prefer the chart to the mildot master, yet the md master still sits in my databook.

    Well Greg, thank you, it seems that those are some mighty fine tools also. My CRS had them hidden somewhere and upon seeing them it was like deja vu all over again. It seems like every year I relearn stuff I didn't know I knew.



  • The 10th Mil relation chart you show on your website; where did that come from?
    Did you put that together? I would like one to add to my other batteryless tools.

    I'm not sure if I made that one or not. You can very easily make your own if you'd like a different format. Basically you just use the mil ranging formula to populate cells based on target size and the mil reading. If you don't have that, you can get it here: http://www.primalrights.com/articles/rifle-sighting-systems/rifle-sighting-systems-part-2-angular-mil



  • @orkan LOL , Thanks, Takes a while for stuff to compute these days.:grimacing:



  • Prepare for it before the lights go out!

    I'm not sure what the community opinion of this series but "Sniper 101" actually has some really good tools on there. Its worth the watch IMO. Keep in mind this series was designed for the absolute noobie. You may find the bulk of it repetitive if you've been doing this awhile...

    Take a look at videos 58 - 80 (ish). Rex (the guy in the videos) goes into extreme detail on setting up SUPER in depth ballistic tables.

    In the description of part 64 Rex has links to some awesome shell excel tables for ballistic tables. Make up a few using your preferred calculator at each BP, then laminate them.

    Also look at part 72. In the description he has a link to a calculator of his own design. Input super basic info you probably already have and it spits out amazingly complete tables.

    At least thats what I did...



  • I'll go look at those as well, I'm always open to learning (or relearning) something new.
    The .10 mil table is right on the money for distance calculation, I just need to dial in my scope to the ballistics of the round I'm shooting. It is faster than the mildot master but the MDM contains some other tools that are useful.



  • Sniper101 has some great content. I don't agree with everything he says, (especially when it comes to optics) but by and large he has a TON of really excellent data and content there.
