    I use Shoot. You can get a 30 day free trial at http://www.ballistics-software.com/

    I wrote a program to reset his expiration.

    I can't see paying for a program that doesn't use a DB and pollutes the registry.

    You can see some comparison charts I made at
    drop, energy, wind, etc

    search for Sharpshooters friend. it's wonderful, and free. it maintains a database of your loads and rifles. I use it with a sony Clie at the range and have found it to be easy to use, and accuate.

    I've been using a windoze thing called Point Blank. Was ok but..............

    Found a spreadsheet thing at some Canadian think tank or somewhere. Seemed pretty good besides being free.

    Use it pretty much exclusively.

    do a google on ballisticsComputer.xls or go to www.snipersparadise.com/download/BallisticsComputer.xls

    Tracked it down from a source on this forum but can't recall exactly where.

    Can you supply a link. I'm sure it doesn't use a *real* DB either - I was using the computer science defn of DB. "Shoot V3" stores your loads in the registry - not a real DB.

    It looks like if one could find this program, it runs only only hairy palm tops.
