Re: What ballistic program to use

I'm a big fan of the applied ballistics app as well. Used exbal for a while but don't miss it. Had a friend that used shooter until he couldn't get things to match up and I started running his numbers. He could have just been entering something wrong but he is doing much better with applied ballistics.

My drops data match up with all three out to 650. Then real close to the Strelok and LRH programs out to 750. Am going to find a new spot to shoot further tomorrow.

Re: What ballistic program to use

seems that if you are getting that big of a difference that something has to be different in the inputs.

care to share your inputs where I can run them thru AB?

Re: What ballistic program to use

I don't have an i-phone, or even a "smart" phone. What would be the best win 7 or 8 program(s) to use in a laptop?

What about "freeware" programs?

What I was actually asking about, was an OFFLINE windows 7 program, which can be used in places where internet access is NOT available (out of wi-fi range, and not subscribed to cellular broadband service).
