Bullet drop: the maths made easy

How come you shoot up hill and there is less bullet drop than shooting on the horizontal? How come you get the same effect when you shoot down hill? Professors Jason Doyle and Will O’Meara explain the theory – and puts it into practice with a rifle and a steel gong (OK – they’re not professors, but they are good shooters). Plus Will explains why rangefinding binos are essential.
