Match Data Book pages

Another member was asking about rifle match data book choices and mentioned since the pages are never shown how does one choose?

I took a couple pics of pages from three books I have, CMP "As issued matches", Creedmoor Data Book, and Jim Owens Data Book.

The CMP "As Issued" book is a basic book since the matches are geared around a single distance either 200yds or 100yds. It gives basic instructions on how to enter data on elevation, windage, sight picture, etc.

Jim Owen Data Book. The main difference with Owen's book is the grid lines on the target are "half value" for sight adjustment. His opinion is that if you should make an adjustment to move your sight, input half the amount. In other words, you are hitting 1 MOA to the Right of the Bull, enter 1/2 MOA Left. Most shooter's wobble zone is larger than the sight adjustment, so adding a full value would cause you to miss in the opposite direction. It works for me, since my wobble is easily 2 MOA.

I bought Jim Owens mainly because of the simplicity for ME. I like it. Had not seen the Creedmoor.

I have electronic files for all the pages of the USMC Competitive Rifleman's Data Book. It has pages for 200, 300, 500, 600, 800, and 1000, all on the standard 10X targets.

For the OP in the other thread, note it doesn't include specific pages for 100 yds on the SR-1. But, AFAIK the SR-1 is exactly half the size of the S-R used at 200, so a guy could just use the 200 yd SR pages for the SR-1 at 100 and the click values for adjustments would be the same. Should work fine.

Just print as many pages as you need.

If anyone would like a copy of the files send me a PM with email address.

Thanks from DennisMc and ColdWarPigGnR

I'm late to this thread, but I'll add my 2 cents.

I've used the Creedmoor and Jim Owens. There is more service rifle wind data in the Owens book. The Creedmoor is a little smaller and there are metal cases available for it. The "half value" grids are a good idea for newer shooters, but less valuable for experienced ones who can call their shots.

Thanks from smoothy8500

Yes, thanks for filling in any gaps I had left out. The wind charts cover most popular bullets in 223 and 308 caliber.

There has to be an app for this. If there isn't, I best be getting busy developing one.

Thanks Smoothy8500 for showing the pages. I been using the CMP book and for a fixed range it works fine. When I start shooting across the course later I may order Jim's Owens book. I assume the Creedmoor has pages for the other yardage in their book?

Yes, Owens and Creedmoor have all three distances, and positions.

I don't know how many guys are aware of Nicolausassociates, but if not he's for sure worth checking. Nice guy too who started doing this to help support his family and finish putting himself through school. I buy from him and his product quality is unsurpassed. Prices too. I bought originals from GardenValley, but for collection. This one below is honest repro as it gets. Can't post URL's, but just use the name above in

the dot com domain.

Ahhhh, I though he was a Ret. USCG WO and did it as a hobby? Guy's don't want too use expensive original manuals and prefer too ruin copies.

I've done some horse trading with him in the past and he is the only source I know of that has the USMC 3591.
