Re: New ballistics program for Android phones

Broz I've been using this program for about a year now, and really like it. My only complaint is when using the auto atmospheric conditions I get some really bad data. An Example would be using it in the field one time It'll give 22.8 moa @ a 1000 yds, and that's correct. Later on that day it will give 13.7 moa @ 1000, and that's just wrong unless I was in space.

This happens all the time, and I've got an email sent to the author of program, but know responds to date.

Re: New ballistics program for Android phones

Would it be possible to download shooter to an Ipod Touch?

I can't imagine that would be compatible. It also has to be purchased at the android market.

This program does it all. Here is a list of features:
* G1 and G7 BC capability, with the option to input 'velocity banded' BCs.
* Bullet Library which includes my measured BC's.
* Rifle and ammo profiles that let you store information about your guns and loads for quick and easy recall.
* Atmosphere effects (pressure, temp, and humidity). This program has the most intuitive input scheme for entering pressure/altitude, it's very hard to get it wrong.
* Spin drift (requires bullet length and twist rate inputs)
* Coriolis effect (the phone can use it's GPS to find your location for this feature)
* You can use the phone's built-in inclinometer to measure your 'look-angle' to the target.
* Outputs are available as a single shot solution or as a table.

I was heavily involved in the development of this program and can vouch for the accuracy of the solution. The actual solver is very similar to the one used in my programs and in JBM. Shooter's calculations match mine and JBM within round-off error (0.1" at 1000 yards).

Here are some screenshots of the inputs:





And here is the single shot output, then the table output:





I became interested in this program when I got my Android phone. The phone is awesome, and the program is easy to install and run. There is a 'lite' version of Shooter that you can download for free, and the 'full' version is $9.99. The images above are from the full version.

There are several good programs out there for iPhone, and for PDA's. Shooter is the first program I know of for Android, and in my opinion, it won't be topped by anything else. If you have an Android, I highly recommend checking out this application.

Here's a link to more info:

Re: New ballistics program for Android phones

This looks like a handy wee program to have and carry. Can anyone tell me if it will work on my blackberry curve or my blackberry playbook?

Shooter - Ballistics Calculator for iOS and Android

If you have one of the advertised operating systems it should work fine, but it depends on who actually did the programing for the device. I've seen a few tablets that will not run shooter, that should run it very well, but that issue is the tablet itself.

Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
