Thread: ballistic calculators

    ballistic calculators

    Whatever data I type in to a bal cal it never seems to match actual drops or elevations dialled in, am I doing something wrong,only thing I am not sure on is altitude, feet or yards above sea level

    Which calculator are you using, double check all your input values, google your location to get altitude. Are you using a chrono for your FPS or manufacturers figures. Don't forget pressure and temperature

    The data input MUST be 100% correct

    iStrelok has Truing so you can shoot <as far away as possible before your round goes subsonic>, enter the actual drop and then get a functional mv0 that way.

    My last attempt was the berger bal cal and it was about 1 milrad out at 1000yds, same as other bal cals really,from my 100yd zero my actual elevation is 6.9 mils at 1000yds with 142gr smks

    I use both Exbal and Strelok and have extensively cross referenced them, they are both extremely close and very accurate when you input as much good data as you can.

    I just use the Hornady ballistic calculator on their website. Seems to give me the right info for my .25-06. ATB
