You can buy a palm calculator with the formulas flashed into the hard memory.
Sounds like a great way to go for under $200 http://www.horusvision.com/Ztragloop.cfm

Catshooter,
I have shot with some people who were testing it for horus and to see if it works. their conclusions are IT WORKS. One shooter plotted info from data book and it was the same in the program. The program for PC goes to 3k yds. Demo Version
As far as the Palm pilot goes it is compact and accurate.

Re: Bullet drop/scientific calculator

I just bought the horusvision softeare for the handspring visor. I'll post results when I test it. I also looked at the horusvision scope - looks great for target but too busy for hunting...

They also have an AMAZING product I bought called the ANDLE COSINE INDICATOR.
It comes is two types - gives you angle or the angle cosine (which is multiplied by the yards to target). I bought the angle indicator. I mounts on the side of your scope with a scope ring and when you aim at your target you read the angle.
I bought the angle version because I wanted to use it with the software. But the cosine would be good if your not putting the gun down and can do the math in your head.

Really really good!

Happy Hunting

Re: Bullet drop/scientific calculator

John,
I'm getting the Handspring Visor with the program chip loaded with the software for a B-Day present from the sweety this month. I been speaking with Dick over at Horus Vision and he has explained it all in laymens terms to me about these devices and the evolution of the product and such, a very nice and helpfull gentleman to say the least. He will not push the product on the site here but may be willing to awnser questions if asked about the product directly. He has visited the site and I think he has registered and posted now also. The price for the unit ready to go was $245.00 and batteries can be replaced in the field with no worries too.

I was wondering where you bought the cosine indicator at? I think I've seen the one you got but can't remember where at.
