My buddy and I are planning on doing a shooting competition at our local gun club and need some help. I have asked around school (i am a junior in college) but no one seems to be able to come up with a formula for me. I am looking for a formula to figure out how much to lead a moving target by so when my projectile hits it will be at my desired bulls eye. The example i gave people was "my bow shoots at 300fps and assuming a deer is walking perpendicular to me at 5fps at a distance of 20ft how much do i lead it by?" I know at a short distance like this it will not matter much but i am more interested in a formula so that when we go rifle shooting on moving targets at 600+ meters and only have one shot we don't miss. Also all this is just assuming it is a calm wind day on flat land and assuming i have a perfectly consistent shot each time. Also please forgive my lack of knowledge i am a psychology major so please try and answer as simply as possible i am not familiar with physics. Thank you for any help you can provide
