I created this Excel file several years ago.

Input the weight of the rifle, bullet and powder charge, add the bullet velocity, stir well and it spits out the ft-lbs of recoil.

Click on the link below to download the Excel file.
I downloaded to my phone but does not take an entry Maybe try my laptop
Any suggestions
Regards

Need more info on workings for Powder/gas velocity - sort of fuzzy on that - jet effect.

M-S apparently has a new procedure for sharing excel workings & this involves sending a link to other selected email addresses, having access to M-S office, to allow access to excel files for only viewing, viewing/modification or down-load for off-line work. Time limits may also be imposed. I use Apache open office software (free) and down-load M-S office excel spread sheets to my file list to work with Apache open office off-line. Spread sheets may be sent back to M-S office by clicking on excel ID'd spread sheets found under 'documents". The nice M-S man, having temp control of my machine, patiently guided me thru the process. Just under $7 per month for M-S office subscription, not that bad.

Spread sheets are sure useful for shooting. Thank-you.

1 item that I am not sure of: Powder/gas velocity, ft per sec. 5200. Question is that a standard on Powder/gas velocity. In all my years loading I hadn't either looked at that or wasn't aware of that. It makes senses, but kind of lost me. The formal is easies enough to understand and set up.
