    We are in the process of gathering Shot information for the proposed purpose of building a Shot recovery system. Mr.N Winston provided us with a trajectory of a 71/2, 3 dram 1250 fps load at a maximum launch angle of 24 egrees. We wnat to do some more at 10 and 5 degrees.
    Does any one have the program for sale or can tell me where to purchase it?

    You can also get it at Precision Reloading. They have carried it for years.

    However, the program will not answer your question. It has a calculation for maximum range, which requires a launch angle of 24 degrees. There is no field for manual input, so you'll have to guess at lesser launch angles.

    zzt,

    You have solved my problem. I was under the impression that the launch angle was a variable as well as other information. No need to purchase the program. MY greatest thanks to Mr. Winston and to you.

    Break em All.

    THANKS, CHAZZ
