    Re: Very Small Altitude-Accurate Results

    When working my own sights, I almost always do a quick check using the formula at the top of the pdf that Ron posted. This is the same simple formula cited in the Nautical Almanac: 0.28P/(T+273); where P=pressure in mb and T=temp. in °C. It only takes a few seconds with a handheld calculator to see if the additional correction is worthy of consideration.
