    How do I calculate the actual MV when I chronograph at 10 feet (or more) to prevent blast interference?

    1: You can use a ballistic calculator,

    Or you can deduct 0.64 FPS for each foot. This is the Army's standard. Calculators are much more acurate.

    Does this program also give reticle analysis with Leupold B&C reticles as well as Swarovski TDS? I'm eager to find a program so that I'll know for any zero chosen for the crosshair and any given flight characteristic for a given load (vel. BC, etc.)the actual ranges that each bar represents in those reticles.

    I am currently working on the latest version. This newest version will include the TDS reticle.

    Currently, it analyzes B&C, Lupy Varmint, Mil-dot, 2nd Generation Mil-dot, NF NP-R2, NF NP-1RR, Lupy TMR, USO's GAP, and IOR's MP-8.
