Re: Need Ballistic software for PPC

Thanks for the info on the iPhone. It sounds like a good setup. I already have an Android smartphone w/ an app that works quite well. I am not too keen on using the phone in the field so I am looking to find a ballistic calc program for my pocket PC. Then if it gets wet or dropped and broken, I'm not out that much and can pick up another one cheap on ebay.
I have lots of favorites... My BPCR is an Shilo Sharps 45-70. I also like to shoot prarrie poodles out at 500 + with my Savage Model 12 LRPV.

The best free ballistics calculator for pocket pc is ballcalc. It can be had at sourceforge. Doesn't do spin drift or coriolis. It's also very slow. Meant to be used in conjunction with a weather station and re-run a few times during the day to account for temp and pressure.

Jbm Is available for android. Get a good case and buy insurance on your phone ! Lol !

Re: Need Ballistic software for PPC

I'm not a teckie so I had concerns about these programs. I just got an Ipod (touch pad) and loaded "SHOOTER" ($9.99 from the Apple Store).

Sucker works, and best of all its easy to use, does it all, angles, spin drift, Coriolis, and Alitude density, temps, leads,.............everything you can imagine.

Solutions in Mils, MOA, IPHY, etc.

Nice ! I've heard of shooter and heard good things. JBM does all that too. Nice thing about JBM is it pulls atmospheric data from the nearest NOAA station and automatically applies it. It also applies compass heading for coriolis.

Out in the field without a signal, you only lose NOAA data.
