Default RE: shooting ?

You will hit higher when shooting down a steep incline but How much, I don't really know. The same goes for shooting up hill. You will hit high. A calculator I looked at one showed that a 300 yard shot at a 30 degree angle would impact the same as a 260 yard shot on a level hold. You can purchase a unit that will figure all that stuff out for you. I don't have one but a friend of mine does.

When shooting uphill or down hill you always aim a little lower, but do not take your crosshairs off the animal. MV out!
