Re: ballistics program

I am using the iphone 3gs with the JBM ballistics field editor and it seems to be a pretty good app to me. Easily customizable and appears to be pretty accurate as well with the 3 guns I have compared it to. It has a great HUD feature on it as well as being able to pull up wind drift and drop charts to ranges well beyond what I am capable of shooting to.......................yet

Ditto on Ballistic FTE on iPhone. IMO it is worth the whole price of an IPhone and the App only costs 20 bucks.

Ballistic FTE is only available for IPhone. I understand there is one called Shooter for Droid, but may not have the features that Ballistic FTE does. I think it is priced at only 10 bucks so it would be worth a try.

Re: ballistics program

Really like Loadbase3.0, most comprehensive program out there. Also run Exbal for shorter range, Shooter on the Droid is very good as well if your rockn' a compatible phone.

Re: ballistics program

Here is a link to shooter. I like the feature of inputting an getting a solutuion. Then you just scroll the distance, wind, and wind angle up and down for an instant solution.

Shooter - Ballistics Calculator for Android™

My brother was one of the programmers for the NLOS guidance systems. He also writes apps. for smart phones. Had him check it out before I bought it. Told me it was definately worth $10.
