What program are you guys using? I am trying to get an idea on my bullet trajectory before I get to shoot. That way, I should be close.

Thanks,

There are several programs that will help get you on target...

I use Perry systems and Horus Vision on Palm pilot for field use. I have both of the above plus the Sierra program on PC.

The Horus Vision has the most features (spin drift, temperature/velocity correction, etc.) but needs some tweaking to get actual results to match calculated results from my experiance.

The Perry system is the closest program I have used to match field results to calculated predictions. It also has a direct output to excel that really cuts down on the time to make table for the field.

The Sierra program is very good in that it allows several loads, bullets, velocities to be tracked and compared.

They ALL need to be proven in the field before live ammo goes towards live targets!

I tried the Eskimo progam. It seems to be pretty good. My load is:

.308
44.5 gns Varget
175 SMK MOLY
2640 FPS

Am I right that the drop is 153 clicks at 1000 with a 100 yard zero?

Thanks for the help,

CC

P.S. - OBSESSED, I didn't mean to hijack your thread. Sorry.

I have never used a trajectory program. All my drop charts come from range work. The programs might save me time and bullets! What is the drag function. What should I use for the SST bullet in 270cal or the SMK. Thanks

On the eskimo program it askes for a drag function G1, G2 ect. Just wondering which one is needed for the SST or SMK bullet?

I dont have time right now to do clicks but if it helps,

bullet drop in inches divided by (.250*Range/100)

Eg. 500 yards/100=5. 5*.250= 1.25 -40" at 500 yards/1.25=32 clicks

Hope that helps

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
