I cant figure out some of these downloadable calculators, I'm not that damned computer literate.

I found an online calculator that has exactly what I need.

www.hornady.com/ballistics/ballistics_calculator.php

but it's online only and I cant take it to the range with me to come up with data for each load and actually make adjustments at the range.

I need MOA come ups for use when I enter my velocity chronographing the particular loads I'm using from my rifle. The hornady program has this in a very simple format that even a dummy like me can handle. As far as I can see I cannot download this program. Other programs I can download are waaayyy too hard for me to figure out. Yes I am a tard, so please help me out.

Okay dammit, I know it's late on the east coast but it's on the 3rd page already with now responses so I've gotta bump it once before I hit the sack.

Okay, the night crew let me down. Is there a dayshifter in the house with a good link.

REMEMBER: This must be an idiot proof program!


( yeah I'm a computer idiot, cant figure out complicated programs )

Have you tried Point Blank?

There are a few that are posted in one of the tech forums. I think Molon was the author. Do a search there. I found a couple in that thread which work O.K. and give me what I need.

I also use point blank for quick trajectory guesses - works pretty well.
