    I just bought a palm pilot off from ebay (palm III xe). . . I paid a whopping 30 bucks to get it to my house. It came with the cradle, cd, and instruction book. All if which are a must for loading Exbal onto it.

    Well needless to say. . . the PDA and Exbal work flawless. I love the system and can't wait to get out and use it in the field at something that moves, or doesn't, I don't care cuz they'll be lead in the air!

    Good Luck, Ken

    7mm is right. The Exbal program needs very little memory to run, so go on e-bay and find a cheap palm. Either a III or a V. The V uses a re-chargeable battery, which is nice. III's use standard batt's. They are dirt cheap, work great and if you lose/break it in the woods, you wont cry because there are more on e-bay for cheap.

    Pop ,

    Honestly , was that a sincere question ?
    If so I have a series of targets that would graphically explain .At this point I'm only out to 800 yds with them. When i'm done I plan on a show and tell to 1000 , and will let the results speak for themselves .

    1 gun , 1 load , as near conditions as a year will permit and HEY ! it will be real /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
