    I used the Nightforce program for year and had drop chats on my rifle stock. Now my old laptop crashed and I have nothing. Im tinkering with 2 new builds and have nothing to go by. What is everyone using now? I have not been the best technology person but with in the last year went from a flip phone to an I-Phone.

    You know, you could just go on jbm’s website and do print offs if you don’t like doing phone stuff.
    There are tons of apps for iPhone now days. Personally I like ballistic ae.

    Yep, I also have a kestrel that has a ballistic calculator and the Sig Kilo 2400 Ranger finder (an all in one). Have one of these in the field and my phone app (Ballistics AE) as a backup, as well as a printed card...oh and tape with drops to 500-600 on my scope turret.:D

    Another Ballistic AE user here. Also like Shooter which is kinda the predecessor to BAE.
    Both apps are fairly easy to use and have similar look and feel.
    Shooter allows you to backup your rifle profiles to a web server and restore it if you have too for some reason. I WISH BAE WOULD START DOING THIS!!! If they are listing.

    I'm tech illiterate. In fact, I'm about as tech illiterate as you can be and still function in today's world. That being said, I bought the Shooter app, and really like it.

    I have ballistics ae, shooter, ballistic arc, Hornady app, and Applied Ballistics. I like the AB app and shooter. Strelock pro is good too, but I don't have it, just used it with friends.

    I have Applied Ballistics, Kestrel (AB) app, and KAC Bullet Flight on my phone. The Kestrel 5700 is my go to in the field, I memorize basic ballistics to 300 and figure anything past that I’m probably going to pass on if I don’t have tech help:cool:

    They are literally all basically the same but for user interface. Just pick.

    Me, for iPhone I like BulletFlight-M.
