Shooting of rifled weapons
Shooting of rifled weapons is an important element in preparing for hunting, and the result of the hunt itself will depend on its quality.
Shooting a rifled weapon pursues the main task-to eliminate the deviation of the STP (the average point of hit) from the point of aiming, or at least allows you to reduce this parameter to a minimum by moving the sight.
Shooting of rifled weapons should be performed with a rigidly fixed weapon, since when shooting from the hands of the probability of the barrel move is very high.
If STP is located to the left than the aiming point, the sight is shifted to the right (fly to left), respectively if STP to the right – aim left (fly – right), so do in the case of location of STP is above or below the aiming point.
It is usually necessary to change the position of the sight both horizontally and vertically.
The value of the STP deviation from the aiming point is proportional to the amount of the sight offset, just as the firing distance is proportional to the length of the sighting line. Here is an example: when shooting from 100 m, 80 cm is the length of the sighting line. STP is located 20 cm to the right and 10 cm above the center of the target. In this case, the ratio of the distance to the target line corresponds to 125 (10000/80), which means that 125 times less should be the offset of the sight to the left and down relative to the deviation of the STP to the center of the target, i.e. – 1.6 mm and 0.8 mm (20/125 and 10/125).
Shooting of rifled weapons should be carried out at a certain distance (for example, 150 m), after which it is important to check how the bullets fall at smaller (100 m) and larger (200, 300 m) distances, thus identifying the necessary corrections when shooting at these distances.
If it is easy to change the height of the weapon on the sight, then it is necessary to note which height corresponds to which length, this is done for the possibility of making adjustments to the shooting on the hunt.
Shooting a rifled weapon is a responsible occupation, it is better to involve a specialist in it, go through all the stages with him, which will then make the shooting yourself.
