charge of . . ."
"Is it noisy?"
". . . well, kind of. We've found that
just as efficient as a flash tube and easier
to do, although you have to be careful . . ."
"What's the trajectory business?"
"Yes, that is important. It has to do
with gravity, which acts on a bullet every
instant of its flight; therefore, the quicker
it gets to its target the less time gravity has
to work on it and the flatter it shoots. This
simplifies hitting at unknown ranges. So
the higher the velocity we get - average,
not muzzle - which depends on the sectional density and the ballistic coefficient I
mentioned a moment ago, the better. OK?
It's not really difficult."
"No, but . . ."
"No matter. I'll lend you a book. Now
you better shoot that chuck."
"If gravity pulls the bullet down, do I
have to hold high for this shot?"
"No, the rifle is zeroed at 300 yards."
"But you said this is 335."
"It is. But you'll be shooting downhill,
which introduces an angle and flattens
trajectory a bit. Also, you have half the
depth of the 'chuck to work with if you
hold center. And . . . Never mind, just go
ahead and shoot."
Jack slid the cartridge into the chamber
and Harry closed the bolt and squirmed
into position.
"Don't forget to set the trigger."
Click.
"Watch the heartbeat. Hold right on.
I'll watch through the spotter."
"OK."
Silence.
KEROWAANG!
Weeds beyond the men fanned down.
A line of crows passing overhead changed

Bob Bell began writing for
Game News well before
becoming the magazine's

blinked several times. He looked at Harry,
then at the sky, then around the horizon.
He cleared his throat.
"You missed Harry," he said finally.
"Missed! Impossible. We had it all
figured. Scientific."
"I know. But you missed."
Jack started loading the equipment
into the jeep.
"There's one other thing," he said as
they bumped through the creek and across
the field. "The human angle. Shooters just
ain't perfect."
"Oh."
"But we're working on it."
Jack stopped at the house just as Millie
drove in.
"Tell you what," he said. "I'll come
back in the morning. You'll get the next
one."
"Fine," Harry replied.
He watched Jack leave, then walked
into the house with Millie.
"What did you do all afternoon Harry?"
she asked, beginning to prepare the evening meal.
"Oh, talked with Jack and took a
little ride. Millie, did you ever hear of a
'chuckwagon' or a variable-power scope
or a gun that . . ."
"No, I didn't, Hon. But speaking of
guns, I wish you'd take your .22 and
shoot that old groundhog that's out there
eating my . . ."
"Millie!" Harry interrupted. "That's
not a groundhog. Nobody calls them
groundhogs anymore!"
