Do a google search, there are several out there.

I use a Nightforce program that is also on a PDA for out in the field.

ballistic programs will get you in the ballpark but you need other info, muzzle velocity, barometric pressure if ya wanna hit past 600, and your actual bullet BC, not what the manufacturers say but your actual BC. there are countless good programs, all they are is a calculator geared toward ballistics, download one on your phone. I run exbal (the same one jeep has only earlier, see I taught him well!)

who here has hit a target beyond 600 yards close to where they aimed using a program?

I think you are the only one that is "touting". Everyone else is simply answering the guys question the best they can.

I'll raise my hand on this one but I know one thing programs are only as good as the scope that sits on top of the rifle. I may not have the right equipment yet but if I can do it with Mil Dots I can't wait to dial one in at 1000+ yards. I'll have it soon but not soon enough is all I can say. Thanks for the exbal info Ridge looking into it.
