    I suspect you are an if so “it’s lovely to see you again my friend!”

    I still read your last few posts every now and then. Some of the more informative posts found on this forum regarding the 416’s future. I remember 3GKurz voicing his relief at having someone with your knowledge join the fray; something to the extent of, finally someone who knows wtf they’re talking about.
    What’s a “PMP”?

    Any whoozers.

    When you jump out of plane, there’s “forward throw”. In layman’s terms, this means that the jumper moves forward at the same speed as the aircraft until their speed is bled off due to drag. Which is important when you’re trying to hit an LZ be it personnel or cargo.

    So instead of training via trial and error we used some smart people to help us determine “lead in meters” based off the ballistic coefficient and drag models of the aforementioned rounds.

    It was actually pretty spot on.

    My spotter kept a knee board on with all the leads.

    And because it was in meters you can apply it to any reticle.

    I’ll look for it.

    My ranch is 45 miles east.
    Good eye, that's exactly where I was. Took off out of Abilene Aero. Actually, the outfit I flew with was out of Blackwell Texas and normally hunts there, but the pilot made an agreement to help out a local ranch owner there in Abilene.

    @DarkeWolf
    Yeah I'm definitely not blaming the gun for the difficulty I was having at the beginning, by the time I switched to the HK I was doing pretty well with the Tavor.

    Like you said, there are so many variables involved when shooting in that situation and it just took time to get comfortable.

    Actually seeing where my misses impacted the ground in some of more sandy areas was one of the best ways to learn where to aim, but then the chopper would switch directions and throw everything off again.


    Thanks for the input.

    Most places charge $2000 an hour or more per person which includes unlimited ammo.

    The outfit I went out with charged $1100 an hour with unlimited ammo included.

They went on to talk about the dynamics of where to aim on the target to adjust for movement and the bullet passing through the slipstream caused by the rotor. I remember them using daytime tracers too to demonstrate the concept.
    yes, I saw this show as well. I've watched more recent stuff pertaining to firing a rifle from within a chopper, and all the of the things you have to take into consideration to calculate your off-sets. I had no idea it was that complicated, but shooting through the downward rotor wash is not as simple as one would think.

    Is that you shooting the video? Boy how I miss jumping. It’s been 25 years and only from fixed wing aircraft.
