Wind and other factors

Quote:
The heavier bullets don't fly as well, and fall below 1000 ft-lbs before 500 yards, and have a lot more wind.
Just about every precision rifleman knows the 100-yard group his rifle fires; since he knows his group doubles at 200 yards, and triples at 300, quadruples at 400 and so on, he can determine the maximum distance that he can place a shot in a deer’s vitals – which is his maximum range.
