Re: Help with drop chart please

What program are you guys using? I am trying to get an idea on my bullet trajectory before I get to shoot. That way, I should be close.

Thanks,

CC

Re: Help with drop chart please

There are several programs that will help get you on target...

I use Perry systems and Horus Vision on Palm pilot for field use. I have both of the above plus the Sierra program on PC.

The Horus Vision has the most features (spin drift, temperature/velocity correction, etc.) but needs some tweaking to get actual results to match calculated results from my experiance.

The Perry system is the closest program I have used to match field results to calculated predictions. It also has a direct output to excel that really cuts down on the time to make table for the field.

The Sierra program is very good in that it allows several loads, bullets, velocities to be tracked and compared.

They ALL need to be proven in the field before live ammo goes towards live targets!
