The results would come out in weight of animal rather than ft-lbs of energy witch is the same thing but we just do not relate to the ft-lbs like we do 300 lbs deer, 1300 lbs elk etc. They called it "Optimum Game Weight" http://www.biggameinfo.com/OptGameWgt.aspx Game weight chart; http://www.biggameinfo.com/GameWgt.aspx Now that formula might seem intimidating, but believe me its not. How do i know that? Because I can do it. I was very poor with math. I suffered from ADD and not the math ADD In the AR article it required one to use a scientific calculator, Ya Right! It can be done with a cell phone calculator! How do i know? I don't have to answer that do I. I have this formula written in my Nozler reloading manual, and its at the hunting shack. We still have to much snow to get into the shack, But i will retrieve this info. __________________ Gbro CGVS For the message of the Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, But to us who are being saved, It Is The Power Of God. 1Corinthians 1-18 Last edited by Gbro; April 16, 2008 at 10:36 PM.
