Finding your Speed Drop Factor

How long does it take to find our drop data for a target range? If we need data quickly, most shooters are using some type of paper chart. This chart could be taped to the stock, on a data holder, or arm bar where with a quick glance we can read our data. What if there is a faster way? Welcome to the Speed Drop Factor. Finding and using your Speed Drop Factor will allow you to memorize your drop data to a reasonable distance by remembering one number.

Many shooters attempt to create hit data (Data On Prior Engagement) utilizing a ballistic chart of pre-printed data points based on the basic ballistic solver parameter inputs; bullet diameter, bullet weight, muzzle velocity, ballistic coefficient, yada yada yada. I get it. It can be done, but it is neither predictable nor repeatable because you are working the problem from the wrong end. Don’t start with solutions. Start with problems.

As a precision rifle shooter, shooting groups is a necessary evil. Some disciplines revolve around group shooting, like benchrest or F Class. As a tactical shooter, I look at it as more of a cross-the-course style of shooting. It's not about the group size as much as the position used to get that first-round hit. We are looking to solve a dynamic problem versus repeating the same thing over and over. The reality is that we want to solve the shooting problem in the least number of rounds possible instead of stacking a group into a single target.

Frank is a legend in the sport. Nuggets of knowledge just flow out in these podcast. I teach people to shoot long range for a living, and I spend many a morning listening to Frank and his guests.

Love what your doing with length of pull. I run all my guns short and I’m 6’2”. Couldn’t agree more about “avoiding the hunt.”
