The Hornady app has worked well for me, especially 600 yards and in. I also have a Kestrel 5700 with Applied Ballistics, it’s a lot better, but not quite as simple.
I agree, I use the dope card on my stock for hunting too. But for practice, gathering dope, etc... the app is a great tool. Not wasting a bunch of ammo or components with guesswork and just getting practice shooting longer distances really helps to learn your rifle and load. And shooting competition it's priceless. There are too many other variables besides trued dope to have a chance without itWhen I'm hunting, simple is what I want. Things can get interesting even at medium to longer ranges. Shooting for fun I'll mess with the app. mtmuley
