    so gave Applied Ballistic's another go.
    Down loaded the custom drag curve for my current projectile of choice. Wacked in the range, velocity , temp, pressure etc then had 5 hits out of 5 attempts at 435m (5 inch plate) then dialed for 600m and went 3 for 3 on an 8 inch flasher plate.
    The 130gn TMK projectiles seem much more consistently accurate past 500m compared to the hornady ELD-M 123's

    Just a rehash of this thread.
    I have just changed phones (gone to the dark side) and can't seem to find the free Sterlok in the apple store? Was hoping to get the same as I had as it worked for what I needed. There do seem to be a lot of other options. Can you use the Hornady one with "other" projectiles?

    My only gripe with that app is that you can't have multiple set ups like strelok.

    Really? You can't have multiple rifles/loads?

    If you are used to Strelok then Applied Ballistic's seems clunky to use

    I run the Hornady app @Shearer... yup, you can use Ďotherí projectiles. It has a pretty big library, or you can input the weight & drag manually. I havenít done enough range testing to confirm accuracy, but I like the interface - and the price

    Thanks @mopheadrob. I have used their website ballistics calculator and it seemed to match what I was seeing. Might give it a whirl.

    Not that I found. I found that you have to manually enter the info to change it.

    Yes. I have used it because I have thought that it is more accurate as its a bushnell scope and bushnell app? Strelok is way more convenient now that I'll have 2 bushnell scopes on rifles.

    Another +1 for strelok Pro. I've gone out to distance, but mate of mine only uses Strelok pro and he's shot out to 1200m consistently.I also use Strelok. User friendly and I would buy it again

    Apple store Strelok which is the free version in Android is USD4.99 or Strelok Pro at USD11.99

    Is worth every cent in my experience. Especially since the developer is great to deal with.

    You just drop him an e-mail if you need a different scope/reticle, I asked him to add the rabbit target back in the day when he only had half a dozen animal targets loaded.

    Yes you can.
    Multiple loads under one rifle even with offsets on current zero so the App will always tell you what to dial to hit target. Have three loads under my 223, two under the 6.5CM and two for my mates 270WSM.

    Ah OK. I haven't found that possible.

    How do you do it as I've played around with it and not found it yet.

    After you have entered your rifle and scope, tap on the rifle in the list. In the top right corner you will see a +. Tap this to add the bullet/load. You can do this multiple times and this is where you can set your offsets as well. Lets say you are zeroed in on load A but have another load B that shoots 1.5 high and 2.5 left. So make the according adjustments here and in the future the Applied Ballistics App will take this into account when displaying what to dial in.
