The folders on the mat are our D.O.P.E (Data Of Previous Engagements) They have all of our elevation settings for various distances with different loads/different enviornmental conditions. Various other notes on angle equations to compensate for high angle shots etc..The particular ones in the pictures are sold by "Storm Tactical" We all pretty much used to just keep a spiral notebook with notes jotted here and there, this is just a more organized version of what we had done before and they are written on "write in the rain" paper that will stand up to field conditions better than our old spiral notebooks, plus they have different options for the binders so you can re-organize things if you find the need...just keeps things from getting cluttered and if you need something specific for a match or what have you, you can move that information temporarily to have quick access to it. It also has a small pouch in the back, I keep my Kestrel in there so it is always with me when I need it instead of having to dig through my range bag.Mr Precision said:Hey Hognuts,
Great pics, rifles look amazing, I also am from a hunting background and am just getting serious about my target shooting.
What is the folder on the shooting mat.?
Excuse my ignorance...
