    Adjusting Shooter ballistic program

    Hi Guys, I'm using shooter, just getting into how it all works.
    Once you have a firearm & load in there, and shoot out to 500 yards or whatever & get real data, what is the best way to fine tune the program?
    Adjust the velocity, the bc, or is there another way to make it all line up?
    Thanks,

    On the "Table" results page for your load, menu top right has a "Velocity Calibration" entry. Tap that, it lets you enter a series of distances and actual adjustments for each, it'll calculate a best-fit velocity for you from that.

    Thanks for that, been using Shooter for a couple of years now and didn't even know that option was there.

    FYI. There is also a set of other handy settings when you hit the same button from the solution page. This is where you get the atmosphere conditions from a weather station if you are in data range. I also like the wind dial. Had it two days and I think I know shit ha ha

    When I first downloaded shooter I could hold the phone on the barrel and it would be able to read the angle. That part no longer works but I think it's iphone4 issues rather than the program. Pisses me off.

    It should still he there its just changed place. It did it for me with the samsung s3 after an update and it changed the options and where they were located. Took me a while to find it.

    Mine does it, Iphone 4s. In the menu when in solution mode under look angle aquisition. Does your range finder not calculate angle? Or do you use it for other things?

    Like rangefinding? Yeah I just found that it does that a few weeks ago. I just hate when things don't do what they're designed to do.

    Another note is that there is another range of settings in the phone settings which is where you can change the units etc.
