As can quickly be seen the steeper the ang}e the shorter the range will be set on the scope or sights to cause a first round hit. Also the steeper the angle the more precise you must be in estimating or measuring the angle. Interpolation is necessary for angles between tens and fives.

As an example 72 degrees is 40 % between 70 and 80 degrees

70 degrees = .34 and 75 degrees = .26 (.34 + .26) / 2 = .30 or 72.5 degrees - .30 72 degrees would equal approximately .31 A range of 650 meters at a 72 degree angle would equal:

Interpolation can be further carried out to 71 degrees or 74 degrees by using the same method with the .30 found for 72.5 degrees:

(.30 + .26) / 2 = .28 for 73.75 degrees or (.30 + .34) / 2 = .32 for 71.25
