Its a great software with most commonly used calibers as preset and simple fields to tweak the desired values. I enjoyed a lot playing with it. There are two of them. One feature that I liked most is the printable value chart / graph of trajectory of the desired calibers according to scope reticle & zeroing, small enough to be pasted on inner side of stock for quick and easy reference.

Seems quite an interesting item indeed, availability, where?

An interesting feature if graphing of trajectory of different calibers is included, nice. :P

Course, it would help in calibrating red-dots, laser sights, etc as well? :rolleyes:

Sorry if I'v mislead somewhere. The link is given in the first post, i.e.,

http://www.chairgun.com/

This will open a page where one has to enter the email and the further download link is sent there.

OR

Try the following link, on the upper right corner box, there are links to both softwares. Procedure to download is the same.

To my under standing, this software is for Hawke's specific scopes and mil dot scopes, and every mil dot scope comes with the specification of dot calibration with the reference of target distance, angle and ammo.

Here is the description from the site

ChairGun Pro is a free tool designed to compliment the Hawke Specialised Reticles (SR6 and SR12) and the Hawke Multiple Aim Point reticles (MAP6 and MAP8) as well as traditional Mil-Dot and Hawke Crossbow Reticles.

Sniper rifle software launched for iPod touch



A new application has been launched for the iPod touch to help gun users line up a clean shot at their target.


The BulletFlight app, which costs 6.99 to download from the iTunes store, has been developed by Runaway App to turn the iPod touch into a ballistics computer which the company says can provide "quick solutions in the field".


Users can mount their iPod touch to their rifle, and then use the iPod's touch-screen to tap in details about the wind conditions, ammunition type, distance to the intended target and even the wind speed.


"Unlike other apps, BulletFlight does not output information in table format," says the application's iTunes page. "What it does do is dynamically give you the solution you need now to take that shot."


The application features built-in profiles for three weapons -- the M110 semi-automatic precision rifle, the KAC PDW, and the 14.5in SR16 rifle -- although users can add more weapons into the app.


"Environmental calculations are based on the Sierra Bullet model," says the BulletFlight iTunes entry. "Up to five ballistic co-efficients with corresponding velocity thresholds may be used for each profile."


BulletFlight is not the first shooting application for the iPhone and iPod touch -- that honour goes to iSnipe -- but it's the latest in a long line of unusal apps for the devices, which have included simulated beer-pouring, a fart machine, and even "breathalysers".
