What will I ever do if I shoot above 2000ft? Or if I shoot this specific rifle build with this specific powder charge and bullet weight in the desert and jungle??? WHAT IF I HAVE OTHER RIFLES AT THE RANGE???!? What if this page out of my dope book is wrong???! Wind? BP? What if my DA changes??? I can always scribble it out and just tattoo something else there…or I still have some room on my other arm!! Lmfao!! All of these professional shooters coming out of the woodwork and getting #triggered because I got this tattoo! Its fucking awesome! #M24 #M118LR #DOPE #DOPEchart #Bulletdrop #SkinGraphics #JesseGarcia #Tattoo #SanAntonio #Texas #MOA #Scopeadjustments #milradian #mrad #175grSMK @sierra_bullets #SMK #ThreeOhHate #308 #762
These are MY cheat codes for my pet load. Your adjustments may vary. This data is for my M24 clone with original M118LR reloading data using 43.1gr RL15 and 175gr Sierra Match Kings. (Not the newer 41.7gr IMR4064) pushing an average of 2,602FPS. Don’t steal my DOPE to get tattoo’d on yourself! Get your own data!!!
While the tattoo is rather cool and somewhat a good idea, I question the problems that can come from this limited amount of data. Has he considered density altitude? At different elevations his dope will be off and the tattoo will be incorrect.
Maybe he only intends to shoot his M24 at the same place for the rest of his life so the data remains consistent?
