    Dit maak nie regtig saak. Solank jy die click chart van die selfde punt doen. iaw as jy die voor punt van jou scope gebruik, dan skiet jy jou afstande ook van daar. Jy moet dit net elke keer van die selfde punt meet en skiet.

    As the rules currently stand, your barrel needs to be in front of the firing line and the trigger behind.
    So basically most will use the start point as somewhere between the 2. Then you measure from that point to the target/reference item and record on sidewheel.
    Repeat on all distances from 9m to 50m.
    Once you have your distances you marry up the distances with your clicks. Shoot targets at each distance or select a few points (start, middle and end) and then manipulate Chairgun to give you the rest.
    In theory you don't even need to use distances, you could use letters of the alphabet, colours etc etc . As long as your ranging marries up with your clicks, the rest is semantics.

    Plonk a broomstick / golf club / straight thing down on the ground. Pretend it's the shooting line. Measure from the broomstick. Sit behind the broomstick like you would at an FT lane and range from there.

    It's not going to make much difference to your clicks if you're half a meter out. Yes, it'll make a difference from 9 to 11 meters but at those distances a few clicks makes minimal difference to POI.
