Just starting out and want programs for a laptop and a handheld (axim x30).
If you were starting over which would you pick and why?
Quietmike, you need to do a search on this topic which has been beat to death. Your question is a valid one of course and the answer would be similar
to, if money is not an option, "What rifle scope to get, a Bushnell or a NightForce?".
I have for years now, used both programs in my PDA, I do not have Exbal for the PC but do have PC and PDA versions for LoadBase.
I have spent hours + hous + hours playing with a variaty of ballistic programs out there through out the years, and my number one choice is LoadBase 3.0 and would be for anyone else that has ever used it.
Why LoadBase? that's where you would have to do a search since it's a long answer... kind of.
One of the reasons I'm still using Exbal is because many times friends using
factory ammo will tag along on a hunt and Exbal has a data base with a bunch
of factory ammunition info which I use to help them know where they are when shooting their rifles. Usually these folks won't shoot longer than 300-400 yards.
LoadBase 3.0 instead gives you a humongous data base of bullets, powders, reloading info. etc. that'll turn other ballistic programs purple of envy.
