A small contribution to the shooting community

A SMALL CONTRIBUTION TO THE SHOOTING COMMUNITY

I have created a small application that uses most of the equations found in
the book Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting by
Bryan Litz
I find it very useful and it sure is a great tool to get very close values for BC7, BC1
from measurements of a long range bullet. There are various equations that are
fun to use.

It's a very simple straight forward application that would be useful for some of the
long range shooting addicts. :-)

It's only for the Windows Platform, unfortunately.

Download the zipped file named "readme.zip". When you unzip it there will be two
files, one is the ".exe" application and the other one is the readme.text file.

Please read the short readme.text file before you run it.

You don't have to install it; I recommend you drop the ".exe" file on your desk top
and your ready to go after checking the readme.text file.

Version 2.0.0.0 out

    Thanks
    bigngreen,

    Changes have been made to allow the application to run
    in smaller resolution screens. Just download it from the
    same link above and replace the old file with the new.

    Please know that I'm not in violation of any rights what's so ever and that Mr. Litz,
    Bryan Litz, does not condemn the release of my small application linked for
    on the top post.

    Please read what Mr. Litz said:

    Re: A small contribution to the shooting community

    Dear Folks,

    The OGW box was not calculating the varmint weight correctly.
    It was, of course, my bad. I also added to the info section seen
    when you right click on the underlined portion.

    just download from the link and replace the file.

    My thanks to the person who caught it and e-mailed me. I don't
    know his name. "I have a strong feeling is a 'He' ".

    Please excuse me for the inconvenience.

    Sincerely,

    Re: (UPDATE) A small contribution to the shooting community

    A new tab page has been added. This concludes all of the book's formulas.
    A photo was also added for now to occupy empty space.

    Due to a small change in the .exe's name you'll have to delete the old one
    since it will not be replaced.

    Your input is appreciated.

    Re: A small contribution to the shooting community

    Eaglet,

    I've been 'playing' with your .exe.

    Quite fun and revealing.

    Another question regarding Rt/R.

    I'm working on a Swiss Navy project that is proving fruitful and your .exe has been quite a useful tool.

    I took a Nosler bullet and measured the ogive length, BT length and meplat diameter.

    I then used the 'Wild Itralian' method to determine RT/r which is, punch in values until the published bc was achieved.

    Is this process reasonable and,

    If the ogive is lengthened what does that do to the RT/r or does it make any difference.

    BTW regarding being rewarded for your freebie .exe. Sneak a peek at Luke 6:38.
