fixing drop charts to stck - how?

Wondering what people are doing to stick drop charts to their stocks.  Have tried a few things, including the best so far, a transparent woundcare dressing thing that lasted quite a while.  Don't have a laminator, so when water gets into it - problems....  I know - i should just get it laminated?

I use a Nikon scope with a BDC reticule.

Scope is zero'd at 100, then the notches are like 150, 200, 250 etc.

So when I go for a hunt I just use a marker pen on my wrist with the numbers for each notch. Thought about doing the whole laminated printout taped to my stock thing, in the end this was far simpler.

Tattooed on forehead?† Smiley

Inside (or outside cap and upside down if hinged then you can read it when open) scope ocular cap depending upon type of caps. Still subject to water damage though... Find someone with a laminator, newsagent?

If you've got a wooden stock you could burn it into the stock with an electric soldering iron for wiring work - and I've seen that.

Or you could get it nicely engraved on the side of the scope - that's probably what I'd do if I was in need of one.

Not sure I'd do it to a Zeiss though ??

Buy one of those cheap double ring things off TM, cut 1/2 it off so you are left with one ring, that fits your scope, get it engraved and fit it to your scope.

You can buy good quality laminated printing paper (A4) for label making, print it on that and then cut to size and stick it to stock, we use a spray on glue as well so the bloody things never come off!

The stuff they use for the numbers on yacht sails sticks to anything Need a good pen for the writing to last.
I stick it to the front of the scope.

Iím too anal about my rifles to stick things on them. I just carry a small waterproof notebook in my pocket with ballistic info. That way I can modify data to the altitude and conditions of the trip to get it as accurate as possible. Temp changes makes a surprising difference to ballistics.

I also write my DOC hunting permit details, heli company phone number, etc in there.

I think the notebook like the golf chaps use, it would fit in your rear hip pocket, with little tips, for instance, aim two inches high, or perhaps you may require more strokes to get it in the hole.
Of course you would use words like inches, minutes of angle, wind velocity.
I did not personally take a reference of any sort as my shooting did not require notes.
However I still have reloading records back to 1972.

I laminate it and then just tape it on with electrical tape. Two strips along the top and bottom hold it on and then I go right around the stock on each end. You donít even know itís there.

I tried to upload some photos to show you but image hut is not working for me tonight sorry.

I buy laminated paper and print the size I need from Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program. I then either tape it with clear tape to my stock or if I'm shooting a competition i wear a forarm card holder American football player's use to call plays. Works great. A buddy just puts a hole in the laminated pice of paper and wears it around his neck. Awkward to me but works for him. Nice to be able to print out different sizes as needed. I often print out the distances through all magnification setting's too.

So is mine . Then again if I keep my shooting distances under 300m I don't need it , I certainly don't need a scope full of all sorts of dots and wires on the reticle .
