I am interested in a good ballistic program. I have ON TARGETS 2.0
& 3.0 and Lock Stock and Barrels ballistic programs. All of them give
different readings (there close) with the exact same load data loaded into
them. They all keep up with each other until around 600 yards and then
their calculations go south and inconsistant of each other. I find my rifle
works well with them out to that range, but after that I do a lot of walking
and recording. My findings are nothing close to what the programs offers.
Also their wind and up/down hill calculation are no where near what my
findings are. Any help on a good program would be appreicated.

I am currently using the Sierra "Infinity" software. You can get it with the Loading Manual incorporated, but I found that unnecessary.
The best thing about it is that you can run ballistic comparisons at different ranges, under different conditions, for several bullets at a time.
I.e., if you want to compare the Berger 73 grain LTB with a 69 SMK and a Hornady 75 A-max, it will print a chart with one bullet path in blue, one in red, and one in green. Most excellent for comparisons.
You can also change the environmental factors, such has humidity and temperature, to compare their effects.
Runs about $35 US.
