    Strelok is pretty good and user friendly, works pretty well. You can download free from the android app store.

    Ballistic Free from the App Store.
    Free bullet data/program updates.
    A lot of common bullets/calibres available here in NZ.
    Worth a look.

    I use Hornady Ballistic Calculator and seems to be pretty good so long as you put in the correct info the charts are very close. It's free too.

    Use whatever spins your wheels but if you have the opportunity shoot a verification string. Keyboard results dont always match real world performance.

    Been using Applied Ballistics for a while then during the Alpine Long Range it kept brining up an error when asked to give a firing solution. Then the Wind wheel crapped out and gives you a reading that is always 180 degrees out. So their support says I have to do a clean install which means I will loose all data for 9 firearms with multiple loads. I have seriously fallen out of love with the whole F#@&ing thing. I'm a wee bit angry at the moment.
