    When shooting up or down at a relatively steep angle hold slightly lower then normal as a general rule of thumb. How low depends on how steep the angle is.

    I beleive it's only the horizonal 'componant' of the triangle that counts in figuring drop. Gravity works on the horizonal distance. 02?
