Re: Ballistics software....?
I have created a program called "The Reloader's Archive" This program is designed for BR and long range shooters and hunters. This program does have a ballistic calculator in it. This program also contains a sectional density calculator, BC, neck tension, optimum gun weight, twist and average velocity calculations as well. This also calculates a corrected velocity based on distance from crony to muzzle and the entered apmosheric conditions. It allows you to enter ALL critical data on your gun, scope, loads ect... Pictures of your rifle can easily be entered and reticle pictures of popular scopes are included ready to be entered into your records. There is also a section to enter any other pictures you like into this program. There is info that can be viewed and printed to help shooters how to keep their loads the same when lot#'s change, how to calculate wind, shooting on angles and even reloading tips. The best part about this program is that it also prints all the info and pictures in a very neat and unique detailed report. You can also print targets, one of which is called a smart target which is a 1" grid target, but when you enter the distance fired and the MOA per click on your scope a calculation appears in each square telling how many clicks up or down and to the left or right it will take to hit center.
Reticle daigrams included are all of the nightforce, most leupold, sprinfield armory 7.62 3rd gen. and most generic reticles as well. In another feild, an edited reticle is entered showing how to use the reticle with your gun and load. I would like, I would be happy to mail to you an printed example report allong with printed targets as well as instructions.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
