    Ballistics App for iPhone

    Hi team,

    Done some shooting on the weekend with my new drop chart that has 25yard incriments.

    Was shooting out to 750 yards and found my brain hurt really bad when trying to work out what to dial if the range fell between the 25 yard incriments. Also trying to work out how much more i needed to dial at say 745 yards if im 6" low. I realise that I will need to learn all this but I have a question.

    Is there an app for my iphone that will:

    Take my load data and create a drop chart viewable on screen.
    Let me enter an exact range and give me the come ups in moa according to pre set data based on load etc?
    Enter more than one pre set.

    Dont want to buy one if they dont do this Especially point 2

    This data is at 745 as your example, goes up in 5 yard increments, to as far as you want

    Cheers Brads.
    Had a blast yesterday, first time dialling. 400 was all good. Went out to 745 for a laugh and the first volley wasnt even on the target, didnt add windage. Got that sorted and got on the target but was struggling with the calc's as it wasnt a 25yard number.

    I will give shooter a go. I suspected it was the one to get but had to make sure it was capable of entering an exact range.

    Gibo you sound confused enough so I won't add to it except to say I use a different software and know how to use it. If you hadn't wagged school so much to go surfing you could work it out in your bonce but don't worry now as that is what the app is for.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
