ballistics programs
« on: November 27, 2008, 10:54:00 am »
I've been reloading for many years, but have never used any exterior ballistics software, such as Quickload, Shooter, and any others.

Was looking for opinions on the various ones out there.

I just shoot paper from 100yds to 300yds at the local ranges.

Thanks!

    This one is kind of fun to play with, and it's FREE!.

    Is there one that estimates internal pressure in PSI or CUP?
    Some people call the midwest the heartland, I prefer to think of it as the liver. Not too interesting, and easy to ignore until it quits working.

    Quickload is an internal ballistics program that produces results in PSI and CUP (plots the whole estimated pressure curve actually). It is a wonderful tool to play with and can give you a lot of insight about how various powders will compare or what you might expect from a particular cartridge design.

    For anyone serious about experimenting with internal ballistics, the PressureTrace II from RSI would be invaluable for getting real data about what's going on with their loads.
