It's a cute little calculator but has no value to me without MOA correction values.

That is a great idea Bryan. A few years ago I was looking for a way to make that very thing 'idiot proof'. What I did was have a check box with two options. Altitude or station pressure. If Station pressure was checked, there was no altitude field. If altitude was checked it offered you another check box for if the user knew the corrected for sea level pressure or not. If the user checked no then no pressure box appeared and the code defaulted to 29.92" Hg. If yes was checked, then a field appreared for the sea level pressure. Example below:

Choice #1:



Choice #2:



Choice #3:



I thought that was a pretty slick idea. I do however, like yours a bit better.
Good job and thanks again.

Thanks Bryan. Much more usefull now. I only looked at the program a couple minutes and didn't see it right off. I would have found it eventually.

Give Bryan your feedback at bryan.litz@bergerbullets.com. He is the one who can make this happen.

Eric
