I use the Exbal program, it has the night force redicals built in. Sold by Perry Systems, easy to use. Palm or pocket PC, and desk top versions. I got the combo pack.

Nightforce is also Exbal, it is very easy to use and has lots of good features. I use it in the field, trust it.

Re: ballistics hand held pocket PC.

col48,
The unit I have is a loaner that is not going back to Nightforce so I do not know much about where they get them. Basically a Dell PDA that they put the program into. We covered PDA's a while back, lots of info on which ones are good for the $, I am afraid I just don't know anything about them. I do know how to work the program, but don't even know how to save info on the damn PDA, seems it does that automatically.

Col:

I use a IPAQ pocket PC, you can get a Palm as well, Some Palms dont have a backlit screen, makes it hard to see in low light conditions. You can get older pc's on Ebay ( under 50.00 for lots of them), its easy to install the programs, just plug into your computer and interface, download. I got the combo program so i could put it on my home computer, makes it easy to learn how to use it. You also can put the program on a Laptop and take that to the range for load testing. From what i tested, the info is right on the money.
