Re: Nightforce Ballistic Targeting Software By Ward W. Brien

I was wanting to get an SD card to store my NF software on my PPC. How much memory is required to get the PPC version onto the card? I won't be running any other applications on my PPC so no need for anything more then what's needed for the NF program.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    it really does not take much. i don't remember exactly how much but i do know the basic card that you can get will be more than enough.

    So how does the accuracy/features of the Exbal/NF software compare to the JBM calculator? I use that and also have Ballistic on my iPod Touch. However, out past 400 yards the discrepancy between its calculations and JBM can be significant, e.g. 1 MOA @ 600 yards. (I even consulted with the developer to get the inputs to match so that I am comparing apples to apples).

    Incidentally, JBM has recently incorporated the G7 data for the bullets listed in Bryan Litz's new book - Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting (Book)

    Does NF have the ability to change drag model? Right now I cannot get my iPhone/ballistic FtE and exbal to give me even close to the same info.

    No, but if you use the info Bryan Litz has in his book for the G1 BC you should be able to get them to agree.

    Limbic, I've experienced the same problems. I was able to get Ballistic close to JBM's calculations but after 400 yards there is enough discrepancy to start worrying about. At 600 yards, the difference is 6 inches, for example. I need to get back in touch with Ballistic's developer and see where the issues are. I emailed him once and made some changes to the atmospheric settings, etc. (Will post more details later). That helped.
