Re: best ballistic program help?

I can't find the window to tweek the G1 bc chart. Can you explain it further? Also, can you tell me if it will read in inch drop? I can only find MOA and MILS.

I have a copy of precision shooters workbench. I don't know if it is the field version or not. It is a pretty complicated program, so it is probably not the field version. It seems to be a good program, but I am liking the layout of Exbal just a bit more.

Re: Best ballistic program

In the 1980s I wrote the Exball program (DOS). I
also released a demo version at that time. I see
references to Exball today and I am wondering if
these references are to my program. Anyone?

GG
Under OPTIONS: Sight in conditions: you set your actual zero data. Uncheck "same as field conditions" if they are not(like shooting in another state).
OPTIONS: Sight adjustment: Here you set all parameters mentioned above as far as inches/MOA/click values, etc.

You simply enter BC to correct for disparities.

Re: best ballistic program help?

I finally got Exbal on my Compaq pocket pc and I have to say it ROCKS! It is a very good set up for range/hunting use and is very straightforward. The only thing I could say I didn't like was putting the program on the pocket pc. It took quite awhile to sync the pocket with my laptop, and then I had to create 2 new directories and sync them too. All in all, it took about 4 hours to get Exbal off my laptop and onto the handheld, but I think it will be worth the while.
Any of you long time users of Exbal found a way to get the program to graph trajectories like Infinity or Quickload??
I am very interested if you have.
Thanks, --goodgrouper
