I currently use G7s but it's kind of aggravating to have to put in temp, elevation, pressure, and humidity every time, even on old saved loads.

I use JBM and it has proven to be accurate with many rifles. Inputting is a pain. The computer or their program somehow leaves the inputted data in place the next time I open the program.

I keep a list of BCs that Bryan Litz reported and true elevation/baro values in my documents.


Barometric pressure input values

2000 27.82

2550 27.32

3000 26.82

3500 26.33

4000 25.84

4250 25.60

4500 25.37

5000 24.90

5500 24.44

6000 23.99

Shooter, Applied Ballistics, and Ballistic FTE provide the best firing solutions of the phone apps.

Shooter and Applied ballistics have far better interfaces than Ballistic.

Applied ballistics has slightly better features than Shooter. Both programs will be dead on inside 1000yds, and generally really good inside 1500yds. Both will start to have issues as you approach 2000yds, but if you're asking this question you definitely won't be able to tell what is you vs what is software.

I will give the nod to Applied Ballistics. They are very active in the industry and provide quality support and presence. They have a presence here on this forum as well, and are responsive when users have questions. You won't waste your money by giving it a download.

Ever consider just using, and doping for DA?

I've found that the Vortex LRBC and Ballistic AE come up with the same data within .1 MOA. And both gave accurate solutions for the rifles I've tested them with (7RUM, 6.5x284 and .308)

I find isnipe to be user friendly and very accurate. I use it for everything from .177 Airgun to 50 cal.
