This calculator is also good when mounting a new scope or checking reloads. Using this calculator and a chronograph really helps to understand your rifle, scope, and ammunition.

Shooters bible. Lots of good info and ballistic tables in the back are compact, good for copying and making range cards. Just make sure your results match the tables...
