It is a lot more simple than it used to be.
Hell yeah... I'd be lost without Strelok
My only point is that there tends to be oversimplification of the challenges of long-range shooting on the tube...
Brand-new shooters attend "their" shooting school...
Buy "their" rifles, gear and ammo...
And become expert marksmen.
No question, custom matched rifles, ammo, and optic can make for a near perfect shooting "system".
On a day with perfect conditions, anyone with the basics of form and trigger control can indeed hit at very long range if the correct parameters are entered into the ballistic computer. Takes the guesswork out of it.
It's the 90% of days that aren't perfect, when the wind is blowing in a half-dozen different directions at different velocities downrange, that they don't talk about.
