Storm Tactical has released a new product called the Pocket Data Book. The P.D.B. is a miniature version of Storm Tactical normal sized data book offerings. The book is 5”x4” and was specifically designed for tactical precision rifle competitions and “in the field” use by military snipers and law enforcement sharp shooters. The P.D.B. can be had with different options, including heavy duty white laser printed pages (the one I have) or the popular Rite in Rain paper. You also have the option to purchase a protective Cordura cover for the book. The Cordura data book cover is a great option because it allows you to zip the book closed to keep out dirt and debris.
The guys and I have been using Storm Tactical data books for a substantial amount of time now. I keep my full size book in my kit and during matches pull data from it before different stages. What the Pocket Data Book allows you to do is keep the information on you and record further information while you are on the firing line. I no longer have to transfer information from my main book to something smaller and more convenient. The P.D.B. easily fits in a cargo pocket or the back pocket of your pants. Recording information during a match is very useful because it allows you to record changes (correct your misses) and make the appropriate corrections next time you have a target at that range. This allows you to fine tune and dial in your D.O.P.E. so you can avoid making the same mistake and have the information for future use.
The pages of the Pocket Data Book include numerous D.O.P.E. cards which you can dedicate to different shooting conditions or shooting ranges. I like to dedicate a page for each of the different facilities I shoot at. I run ballistics for the conditions I’m in and after shooting will record that information on the appropriate page once it is confirmed. Over time I gather enough information to have solid D.O.P.E. for my rifle in various areas.
