    Line of sight. I assumed you'd know what I was saying? It is the topic.

    Not too difficult to understand...BUT the real challenge is up/down hill at much longer ranges.

    True, but I have an answer for that. No long shots.

    Yes , gravity works and I understand your point , but it depends how you have your gun sighted in too....shooting on flat ground with the billistics from my .300wby round, the projectile actually go's up slightly till 300 yards....then starts to drop from there on out. The bilistics are on weatherbys site if you care to check it out.

    If that's the case then the arrow "rises" much higher than the bullet.

    Just sayin'

    Referring to the 60yds that was being talked about. That's why I quoted it.

    Please don't make me explain this post too.
