    I believe the thought is that it takes the shot longer to reach the target and during that time the target will rise a greater distance.

    One of my biggest problems is shooting over straight aways from the 27. Move to fast, and right over the top. I found a 70/30 works best for me. To much speed on straight aways will kill me. Where-as; not enought speed on the angles will also kill me. The adjustment from shot to shot in speed is one of the issues that took me a long time to learn. For me the trade-off is the 70/30. I prefer the 90/10, but I will go over the top on those easy staight aways ever time with the higher shooting gun.

    Your thinking far to much about it and when you think to much about it you miss targets and when you miss targets you begin to wonder and think even more and then you are in a downward spiral into the abyss of Misstargetdom.

    Interesting, Lumper. You must have long yardage shooting figured out then,because "Thinking too much" wouldn't be a problem for you.LOL--nothing personal, just couldn't resist.

    I hate to admit it but old Lumper is right on this one [God, it pains me to say that}.


    Simone.....What the hell is Trigonometrical Sense? Is that what Lumper is using?
