Re: New Ballistics Program From Berger Bullets

I was playing with the Berget bullet program and matching it up with Sierra Infinity 6 program wiich also includes Berger bullets in it and seeing how they matched up. Evidently Sierra is prouder of the Berger bullet than Berger is. With a starting speed of 3450 with the .257 115 VLD bullet the Sierra program showed the Berger bullet going almost 200 FPS faster at 1000 yds than the Berger program did. I don't know which one is correct but that will defiantly cause a miss at that range depending on which one is correct. I'm going to have to go back and do some more digging to see if there was something I missed.

Note: I went back and checked again and think I found it. I'm using 4000 for elevation and there is not an elevation input area on the Berger program that I can find. It also does not show what elevation its set at. Maybe Bryan can clear that up.

    Bill,

    Please see my previous post. You have to use the air pressure input to capture the effect of altitude. Hover the mouse pointer over the word 'Pressure' and you'll see a table of air pressure values to use at different altitudes.

    Can this program work on my HP PDA in the field?

    Does it work past 2000 yards? Exbal will not on the PDA version.

    It doesn't work on mobile devices.

    But it does go out to 25 seconds time of flight. Pretty sure that gets you to 2000 yards
