    I'm looking for some insight on ballistic software for a Recon. Positives, negatives, comparisons and other software I may not have considered. Which is best for ballistic trueing? Or any preferred methods of trueing.

    Thanks for all your time and effort in advance guys.
    Keep pushing the envelope

    I have both and use neither! I use shooter. If I had to choose between the two you listed then Nightforce, Horus uses an unlock code and its a pain in the ass to say the least!

    For about $30, you can buy the Applied Ballistics program and download it onto your smart phone.

    Ballistic, Advanced Edition. I seen someone mention it on here and I checked it out, 30 bucks and its got a bunch of options on it. Im waiting to get my gun together to test it out. Just messing with it a little bit I definitely think it will easily give me 30 dollars worth of help.
