Is there an easy way to output the data from your calculator by MOA instead of by yardage? In other words, list the drops associated with a reticle (like the NF NP-R1)? I currently have to go through all the exbal data and manually create my drop chart for each moa from -10 through +30moa.

Thank you AJ. Yes that is one of the calculators I have put together.

It is set up for inches, MILS, NP-R2 Bars or clicks.

I am not 100% sure what you are asking but if it is set up for NP-R2 bars it simply tells you that at a given yardage or in meters how many bars you need for a hit.

An example is when setting up for a shot at 1000 yards and set for bars, it will tell you you need 9.81 bars instead of 5.7 mils etc.....

Below is an example. The screen shot is only to 700 yards but you get the idea.

Actually, close but not quite. What I need is the output that shows the bar and the yardage for that exact MOA.
Like this (moa and yardage from 10 above the crosshair to 30 below) (I use the NP-R1)

10.....100
9.......211
...
0.......735
...
-30.....1812

It has not been assembled that way.

Re: What do your drop charts look like?

Just a small suggestion here. I also put my dope for the most common air density in my Butler Creek scope cap ocular cover for the reticle i'm using. Any additional information i may need goes into a Butler Creek Blizzard style objective cover. The clear plastic piece is held in place by a spring clip. If u pull that out, the plastic piece comes out and u can put a lot of dope on a sticker and attach it to a thin piece of circular cardborad and put it all back in the BC so when it pops open it's right there to see without having to get out of position to reference it. I have also found that the Blizzard holds onto the scope tube better when switched to a std. BC scope barrel mount. The one that comes with the Blizzard is too flimsy, and tends to slip off when it gets hot out.

That's a lof of info AJ--well thought out!
