Q12. In the Interior
Ballistics program, after you
load a gun
file, the ‘Powder Water Capacity’ gets filled in somehow, as does
the ‘Case Water Displaced By Bullet In Grains’ columns.
Shouldn’t the two added together equal the ‘Water Capacity’
in the gray information area above? If not, why not?

Bullet in Grains (Col 15) minus the Boat Tail Correction (Col 16)

Q8. I was wondering if your software gives the information for the
distance to sight the gun in at so that you have the least amount of
rise and drop out to some max distance. I have heard of software that
will tell you that for a 30-06 it should be sighted in at 213 yards and
that gives you the least amount of rise and drop for holding right on
A8. Yes, one of the options on the Trajectory Tables drop down menu
calculates the optimum zeroing distance for a point blank setting. The
optimum zeroing point is where the bullet goes above the line of sight
to the point blank amount and then down and crosses the line of sight
which is the optimum zeroing point. The distance at which the bullet is
below the line of sight by the point blank setting is also given. You
may vary the size of the point blank setting and the default value is 3
inches above and below the line of sight.
