Re: What ballistic program to use

check Bryan's webpage i'm thinking that he has his applied ballistics program on a CD where it can be installed on a PC too.

I was right you can get the software on CD you just have to buy the book to get it

No you get "Version 2.0 of the Point Mass Ballistics Solver" not the same as the applied ballistics app by a long shot. Just keep in mind it isn't the app you've seen around. I do in fact own the book and have the software. It is good and does just about anything the app does but is a completely different format. Sounds like it should work for what he wants though. It is pretty nice software. Just don't get it confused.

Patagonia Ballistics sells software compatible with Windows 7 (and I presume Windows 8). The programs install both on a PC and a Windows mobile software containing device for use in the field while hunting. You can work up loads/tracks on the desktop and then 'synchronize' (send them from PC to Mobile device) back and forth between the desktop and mobile devices. But it's not free software. The software is called ColdBore 1.0. ColdBore 1.0 costs about $150, in order to get both the desktop and mobile versions. Google Patagonia Ballistics or ColdBore 1.0 to learn more.

Re: What ballistic program to use

I see, it looks a bit more basic but I bet the firing solutions are the same since its the same solver?

to the OP you could always just go to walmart and pick up an IPOD and then use anybodys wifi and download the applied ballistics app from the amazon web site.
