ok, im going to swallow my pride on this but i think its a question alot of hunters ask them selves and friends a few tim each year. when im shooting down a steep slope or up a steep slope is my bullet going to rise or drop? i missed a deer last year with my 338 from 50yards, standin still and it was above me at a very steep angle. i dont miss, i take my time and make sure everything is right, what happened? it was a nice 4x fyi, 170sh. wasnt cool. 338 was sighted in at 100 for that hunt if that means anything.
