Re: ballistics program suggestions

Dave,

Not really sure what is available as far as features. I have looked at quickload and it seems to do everything I want but I thought there may be better programs. So far reloading, I have stuck with manuals and reading forums for what manuals do not cover. I would like info on what is available and what is better about each program.

Thanks,
Kyle

Re: ballistics program suggestions

Quickload is pretty good to get started. One of the good things about it are the preloaded bullet files for most commercial bullets. You can get output in Mildots for S&B scopes. For well parameterized cartridges like .308 Win, the Quickload will give realistic velocities that you then carry forward to the trajectory calc.

If you get more into specific equations later, you can check out the JBM ballistics site. He has free code, plus references to books like R. McCoy's Exterior Ballistics
