Re: Nightforce ballistic software

If you can find a current issue of Shooting Illustrated (NRA) I have an article in it more or less detailing the Nighforce program in the field and some other info re ballistics programs in the field.
Must warn you, it is NOT for advanced computer users, but it might give you some basics.

What do you mean, it is not for advanced computer users ?

Can you put the PC version on a Palm ?

Thanks !

Re: Nightforce ballistic software

Sendero Man,
What I meant is that I am not very computer literate and cannot get things to happen as quickly as more proficient individuals - such as my 10 year neighbour kid, Dave King, Michael in Alaska or most of the guys here. I can get my little Dell to show nice drop charts that have worked quite well for me.

How in hell did I write an article for an NRA magazine? Because I use the little sucker a lot and can describe how it meets my needs. Plus I made a few essential calls to Nightforce and to the developer of EXBAL, plus did some interviews at the SHOT show to get good info on the Nightforce program. There are some very worthwhile fields in this program that will do good things for long range shooters. Since I don't retain instruction worth a damn I cannot whizz through the program like I would like to - but I keep tapping the screen and eventually get some of the more exotic stuff to work.

I believe it is a very useful program and trust it. Suggest you check the EXBAL website or Nightforce to determine if it will go on a Palm, I expect it will.

Re: Nightforce ballistic software

Ian,

Thanks for the reply, I found it had a very short learning curve and was pleased how fast I figured most parts of the software out.... I am just a dumb Cowboy from Wyoming and I can even do it....

Re: Nightforce ballistic software

Before following Nightforce's advice on a Dell computer, I'd look into it a little bit.

I do not say this because of performance or reliablility. Quite the contrary, I'm sure they produce a quality product.

On the other hand, I have started to take stock of which companies support causes I disagree with. Certainly, I can't avoid doing buisiness with every company that offends my principals, or I'd be stuck in the house all the time, but Dell, in particular, has donated rediculous amounts of funding to causes like the Brady campaign, Sen. Feinstein's election campaigns, the Violence Policy Center, and other not so popular causes around these parts.

Just some food for thought.
