Your preferred data log book?

So up until now, I've been making my own, I'm looking for a good log book. Not specifically for matches, but more informal shooting.

Needs to be waterproof pages, and needs to have a cover/ jacket.

I'm looking at these https://www.americansnipers.org/shop/snipers-data-book-kit.html

Anybody have a favorite? any input on good log books? crappy log books?

I don't have access to the one's I used as TRS for the Sheriff's Office anymore, and those were tailored to specific engagements anyway, I didn't really care for them anyway for leisure shooting. Had office letterhead and other junk in them that serves no purpose now.

I understand the snipershide ones aren't waterproof pages, that's why I excluded.

I looked at impacts data books and was completely blown away at the number of different pages that are available to choose from. I did not end up purchasing anything...i don't know where to even start? Perhaps a pre-made book would be good for beginners?

Impact is great.

The principle is a shooter/frequent poster here.

I have at least three of their books running 8-10 guns.

I order Rite-in-the-Rain paper option and I find plain circles to be my most used target page, usefull for trying to stay within a given MOA at various ranges.

Pencil works best for RITR paper, next would be RITR specific pen. Alchol based inks seem to just bead up and smudge.

You can one stop shop at Impact, you wont be disappointed.

May I propose an alternative view - I started with loose leaf/binder premade logs and have no transitioned to rite in the rain loose pages in the same binder. I keep the first few pages for rifle/component data, the next few for round count, the last pages for load development (all premade) and then the bulk are just faint ruled pages. This allows me to record data, draw diagrams and keep notes (lots of notes) this way I am not bound to set page. For me it’s about consistency of data/record keeping eg:
Environmentals
Location (including lat long and azimuth)
Purpose
Objective
What I did (step by step! Physical and mental)
What I learnt
New goals

This one book is for dryfire practice, competition, hunting and training

My 2 cents fwiw
