Re: best computer balistics software?

I use an Excel spreadsheet. It works very well for me and I can modify the thing as I wish...

It does many of the standard items, BC, velocity, sight height, zero, range increment and some environmental manipulations (altitude, temp) and I can control the range increments easily.

The thing I like most is that I get a nice tiny printout of the drop chart(s) that I can then cut and paste into the rear Butler Creek lens cover.

And, thanks to help from Warren Jensen, it does some minor Coriolis calculation just for those that have to know that kind of thing.

Re: best computer balistics software?

Hello

There are many programs available.

The one I like is the "Oehler" balistic program. It is easy to use and one of the features I really like is the ability to run three bullets against each other (at the same time)on a graph, out to 2500 yards. You can see what is happening to lower BC bullets when you have the ability to do that.

I don't know if it's the best but, it's the one I have found to work best for me.

Same I don't if it's the best but I use Tioga. It's available thru Lilja. http://www.riflebarrels.com/
It is a DOS program and is plain jane but it works great. Gives you MOA and scope clicks needed plus other stuff. And it has been very
accrate for me.

Hi,
Another option is the program that Dallen gives away free on his web site, Huntingnut.com. He also has a reloading data base there.

Hope this helps.
