    Hi Guys,
    I got this program on the internet here: THREE BROTHERS OUTDOORS .

    Free for 30 days to try. It's for keeping track of your components and loads. $10 doesn't seem to bad, if it works. I've already entered all of my powder, bullets, primers and brass. It was handy to print out my powders last week when I went to the gunshop (they got in a shipment of powder).

    My question is, are there many other programs like this (not a load manual online, but something where I can keep MY OWN inventory and loads in order)?
    and
    Do you think it is worth the price?
    Thanks,
    Brig

    No it is not worth the money when all you have to do is create a simple spread sheet.

    If you have 3# of H4895 there are 7000 gr per # so that is 21000gr If your load calles for 25gr of H4895 and you reload 200 cases that is 5000gr used from your 21000 gr inventory using the calc function you can subtract 5000 from 21000 leaving 16000 gr.

    Not hard when you think about it. If you don't have MS Office then download open office for FREE and use it.

    Me I just budget $75 a month for that stuff if I don't need anything then next month I have $150 to play with.

    Here is a simple one I made real quick

    I'll just stick with the Sierra Infinity ballistics software and reloading manuals.

    I hadn't heard of that one.

    Do they have it at cabelas or midway?
    What's it do?

    This download was free, so I entered my powder, bullets, primers and brass and then printed them. Just to have the list of what I have.

    I also entered in over 60 different loads from my notebook. (I have years of loading records in notebooks and on index cards). It is nice to select a caliber and see all the loads I have made for that caliber and the accuracy results. Then I can pick the best load for the powder/bullets I have on hand. It says that you can still view everything, just not enter new data after the trial, so I'll have to wait and see after my 30 days are up.


    Thanks for the info.
