BallisticPRS V.1.13 Released, New DA Specific 3×5 Cards & More

Download them now while they’re hot. The latest version of BallisticPRS contains a neat new page with 3×5 cards set up already for -4,000ft to +10,000ft DA’s. Cards do away with spin and Coriolis in favor of 5/10/15/20mph wind regimes but I’ve left the moving target leads in. These 3×5″ data cards were cooperatively designed between yours truly and US Optics sponsored PRS shooter and precision rifle instructor Nico Detour. I’ve tinkered with the coloration so they’re easy to read in shade or bright sunlight and the fonts and font coloring to prevent wash-out in the brightest overhead direct sunlight.

All of the 3×5 cards are on 1 tab for simplicity and they’re set up to print 4 cards to a page of A4 or 8.5×11 media.You can get the whole bunch of them in one wrist caddy and just select the one you need at the time to be on top. These rip proof, blood proof, field proof, idiot resistant data cards are not going to let you down in the middle of a match. You can’t harm them and neither does dirt or mud or blood.

Production Ready: Density Altitude DOPE Cards

Yeah baby! Check these out. Hot off the presses for my first consumer, Nico Detour of US Optics Academy and PRS competition fame. There’s been a huge amount of work to get these ready.

Thanks to Nico for giving me the chance to show him how well these things work and how indestructible they really are!

Updated BDC Generator Live in Version 8.29 Quick DOPE Cards

I spent all night grinding over it and making sure it worked. It’s a big change from the first version under the covers but for you it just means it works and you don’t have to think about it. It’ll generate MOA or MRAD BDC’s for your reticle. All you have to do is grab an image of your reticle and scale it to fit in the box provided then set the transparency of your reticle image to your personal tastes and you’re done.

This should make your hunting and competition lives a lot easier. These new Quick DOPE Cards fully implement the TiborasaurusRex system and ignores spin drift, Coriolis effect and moving target leads since they’re the least useful.

These cards are pre-formatted to end up printing out as a pair of 3×5″ sized objects. You can get them printed on field proof Revlar by me for a small fee or print them yourself. Just print out on regular paper, trim and fold to yield a 2-sided 3×5 card with exact data and BDC data.

BallisticXLR Version 8.27 and BallisticPRS Version 1.11 Released!

A bunch of big updates. There will be another minor update to BallisticPRS in a few days but it’s only going to be addition of more projectile BC’s in the Projectile Database tab.

Big Changes:
BallisticXLR – Added BDC generator for Mil-Scale reticles. Simply select your reticle, copy/paste it in to the Quick Dope Card tab to replace the one that’s there. Then scale it accordingly and set your transparency so the underlying cells values are visible. Updated the Quick Dope Card tab to include the latest trimmed version of a DOPE card that’s set up to print into a 3×5 inch form factor. It’s meant to be 2 sided so you get mil-scale & BDC data on one side and proper DOPE on the other. Updated all of the latest ELD-M bullet BC’s, fixed Extended Data 5mph wind data for station pressure, fixed some formatting and single cell formula errors, fixed some hidden reference formula copies, cleaned up pagination everywhere.

BallisticPRS – Added 3×5 printable DA cards for several DA zones at the request of Nico Detour with 5/10/15/20mph wind columns and no Coriolis or Spin columns. Oodles of little back end fixes. Will be adding ELD-M bullets on v1.13 in a day or so. Also added DA calculator.
