Re: Why no "reverse engineering" ballistics calculators?
Exbal is close with trajectory validation, you provide a BC and shoot some drops and put in the amount you adjusted and the amount the POI was off and it tweaks the velocity to match, you can also use multiple BC's to line it up as well but it is not a automatic function.
Loadbase 3.0 has a BC and drag finding utility of sorts that helps you find the exact BC and drag out of your rifle for any given bullet but requires shooting though a crony at range but will yield exact numbers, but few will brave it except Phorwath.
A lot of cold bore shooting in varied conditions with good record keeping will help you know when you need to add a little sauce to the correction that your program is giving you, there are things that they just can not take into account for you.
