I use and like Strelok. When I got it it had a free version.

I tried several and ended up paying for and using Shooter and Ballistic AE. A little different interface but both are easy to use and accurate.

I bought a new Nikon scope and downloaded their SpotOn app to my smart phone. An extensive selection of scope choices allows one to find an equivalent scope (or very close to it). Go to Nikon's website and check it out. It's free.

It's a ballistics calculator providing bullet drop at a specific distance. You need to know the muzzle velocity and ballistic coefficient of the bullet. It's just like using ballistic tables only the math is done via a computing device like your cell phone.

Go to the Nikon website and play with their SpotOn calculator. You will quickly pick up on how to use it.

Ah, thank you. I do get the ballistic's from my chronograph. It sends to a small printer that came with it. I need BC and velocity.
