Purpose:  The purpose of this guide is to help gamers properly judge bullet
drop due to gravity over long distance shots as well as the effect of
crosswind speed on the drift of the bullet path.



***KEY***

==============================================================================
Note:  All numerical values (except ‘Windage’) are given in tickmarks on the
scope crosshairs.  All values are given when the scope of the particular rifle
is at max zoom.  

‘Head’ --  refers to the size of a target's head at the given shooting range
           in tickmarks.  

‘Drop’ --  refers to the number of tickmarks the bullet will drop at given
           ‘head’ range.

‘Windage’ -- refers to the crosswind speed as given at the top of the scope
