Computerized reticle

I have finally done it!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

I have created a computer program that allows you to enter your zero and your bullet drops and windage and it will show you a picture of a given reticle such as all the Nightforce reticles, and the Mil-dot and numbers will appear on the reticle showing you how many inches high or low the bullet will be at each hold over in 100 yard increments! Also number of clicks and MOA come ups are also given for those that want to move the reticle to hit at their desired range with the center croos hair! YeeHa!!

Re: Computerized reticle

Copyright the program and get a government contract after you port it to a palmtop... this should set you up with $$$$$$.

After seeing the topic I was thinking of a HUD scope that has a laser range finding built in. After the laser grabs the distance the computer then calculates drop per the load, temp, distance and the a small dot appears and that's your hold-over. (load and temp can be entered in advance) The only thing the shooter has to compute is the wind.
Maybe someone has this already but I haven't seen it or heard of it. Anyone working for USO here, if so it's an idea?

Re: Computerized reticle

I am retro fitting this program into another program that does so much more. That program is already copywrighted and I just need to update the copywright. I am thinking though of making this available as a program in and of itself.

Re: Computerized reticle

Yeah that atrag software stuff is preatty cool, this program allows you to use NF reticles though. It doesent calculate ballistics, you have to enter your drop chart and it just shows you how high or low you would be at each hold over and how many clicks up or down it would take to hit the target based on you MOA per click. Also MOA come ups and come overs are included.

Input values are zero range, drop in inches at longer ranges, MOA per click (eg. .125, .250 ect...), wind drift in inches. You choose which reticle you want to use. Mildot, NP-R2, and NP-1RR. Other reticles are soon to come.

The graphics on this program are really cool too.
