    Here is a link for a pretty cool software. It has a good amount of saved powder, bullet and primers programmed in it. All you do is enter you load data and the bullets BC and FPS and it will give you flight path, wind drift, energy, trajectory and MOA. All in charts and graphs.:supergrin: Good fun and its free. They ask you to donate $10 which is worth it. And hey if your Occupying Wall Street, well you won this battle because it FREE. But I donated the $10 bucks so I don't have to wait the 10 seconds for the start up.:whistling:

    I downloaded the .zip file, just haven't installed it. I'll give it a look/see when I get back from a trip out west.

    I've used it for ages and it gets the job done. I actually like the older version (1.8) a bit better than the current (2.0) and kept both. I actually use Hawktech Chairgun Pro more than either. An email address is required but the program is freeware and there is no spamming or other nuisances associated with the software.

    I used PointBlank maybe 8-9 years ago. Was OK and is decent for freeware.
