Crony paperwork form...?

Has anyone here ever made themselves up a spread sheet or some sort of form to use with your Chrony? I can see the usefullness of such a form to write down your velocities so you can save them in a form that is easily read back. Before I took the time to make one up I was wondering if any of you had already done so and might share the form with us?

Here are a couple of ideas. Good luck. I just write my results down in a spiral notebook that i keep in my range bag.

Here's one I made the other day. It seems to do everything I want it to. I keep them in a 3-ring binder and take it to the range with me. I used Corel Word Perfect to make it, and I can't seem to attatch the file. Here's a scan of it. If anyone wants a copy of the original (.wpd) file, IM me and I can e-mail you a copy.

If you get the Shooting Chrony Ballistics II program to use with your Chrony and your 'puter, it will be slicker than snot on marble. I recently found out that it works with Windows Vista, too.

I use the green ledger books available at office supply stores. They can be had with different numbers of columns. I just write headings at the top of each column. It comes out very similar to firechicken's layout.
