Re: Ballistics Software Comparison

I know many people, myself included who started out using JBM. It's a free online resource with tons of info plus it works. Here's the URL:

JBM - Calculations

...toward the bottom of the page you will find the trajectory calculators.

There are many stand alone programs as well. Most of the common ones range from about $70-$150, but of course you can go up from there.

Re: Ballistics Software Comparison

The highest version of Ballistics and Bulletflight is $12.99 and $29.99 respectfully. They are used with the Ipod touch or IPhone. Exbal runs around $60 I believe and JBM is a free online calculator.

I shot my gun this weekend and now have a drop chart out to 775. I will rerun my numbers and compare them to the results. I am probably going to have to change up the BCs to get the data to match my chart. We will see how it goes.

Re: Ballistics Software Comparison

Oops I totally forgot about the iPhone appz. As far as price goes
they are much more reasonable. I can't speak for bullet flight but ballistic
is pretty nice. It has a lot of features for the price.

ZUNRJ5, Thanks for the information. I will look into the different drag functions and see what the B.C would be for the Berger vld I am using at the velocitys it's shooting and see if this helps. Thanks again.

Re: Ballistics Software Comparison

I'm glad i could be of assistance.

You should be able to find some good info on VLDs and drag functions here: Articles

The site belongs to Bryan Litz. I believe he's a member here as well.

Good shooting,

-John

Re: Ballistics Software Comparison

The Nightforce program will work with pocket pc 2002 or 2003. You could probably send them an E-mail to see if it works with newer versions.
