trajectory calculator

I was wondering if anyone had a trajectory calculator that I could access? I can't access any evil "weapons" sites here at work, and was wanting to check a couple loads while things are slow. I know there are some available, but I just can't get onto those sites while here. I can do it tonight when I get home, but I figured, what the heck, why not ask?
thanks ....

hornetguy, I don't know if you can access it, but you might try JBM Ballistics.

http://www.jbmballistics.com/ballist...culators.shtml

Apparently they have free downloadable software.

AHA!! the first link was acceptable to my internet gestapo.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

edit: so was the second one, and it was more user friendly.

thanks.

The internet is a time vampire. That is where lots of my time goes in the evening.

No its OK to text, email, surf all day, just never able to click on an evil site such as one that mentions dreaded "firearms". Just saying the liberal geek and politically correct legal department chooses to censor. I did my job until retirement, thank you kindly.

Bummer, hornet.
Well, you could learn the formula for calculating trajectories and work it out on your desktop calculator. As for me, such calculations are above my pay grade!

stealing resources, and not working? Did you ever hear of 2 15 minute breaks and an hour lunch time at your workplace?

Don't be such a self-righteous prig....

and I mean that in the nicest possible way.

Yes... not only above my pay grade, but those kinds of calculations are somewhat above my, um... math skills. Even WITH a calculator.

Anything is above my pay grade that I don't know how or don't want to do.
I tried telling my wife that mowing the lawn is above my pay grade. Sadly this didn't work.

Anyhow, I hope you've found something that will make your break time more profitable.
