    What caliber, what game and farthest range?
    I started with and used "Bullet Flight", but ended up getting a custom turret. All I have to do is use my laser range finder to range the game then turn the turret to the yardage, hold for wind and shoot. It makes it very easy while in hunting situations.

    The two top choices would be Patagonia Ballistics Loadbase 3.0 and Exbal. Both solid programs, it depends on how far and how much you want to be able to do and if you want to use G7 bc's or not.

    Completely replaces a ballistic computer. You need to know two things, altitude and temperature which most ABC wristwatches like the Timex WS4 will tell you.

    I don't see any place to have one custom made, looks precanned for the 308, 300Win and 338 Lapua. I don't know about that even if you could get one made, no animal stands in 50yrd increments and 1000yrds isn't going to cut it. Don't see on replacing a ballistics program in a LRH situation.
