Now I am NOT a long distance shooter. but it is something that has perked my interests as of late. I was thinking about something and wanted everyones input.
In my area there are only two ranges that cater to rifle shooters. One indoors which sucks and another to the west that only goes out 100 yards. My idea was using math could you theoretically reduce the size of your target, Say by 1/5 to mimic the same size target at 500 yards?
I understand that more factors come into play when actually shooting at longer ranges. Wind, temp, spin of the earth etc. But would this be something that you could use to practice trigger pull and rifle manipulation at a simulated distance?
So I'm sure that my thinking is flawed in some way shape or form but if anyone could enlighten me I'd sincerely appreciate it.
