Quick Load is probably the best known and likely the best overall program
especially for Internal ballistics that I have seen/used...

Next up is Load Ammo ballistics software is another very good and cost
effective ballistics program for both Internal and external calculations...

RSI is another to consider, and I may purchase the whole ballistics system
for a complete pressure monitoring of various loads...

Thanks.

I'm using Strelok free version and it's been very accurate for my 308 - 1st shot hit at a 4" gong at 650yd; it's also been very accurate for my son's 22-250 at 450yd, but total disaster for my Grendel at same distance... Still trying to figure out what went wrong.

I was looking at Shooter and Applied Ballistics Mobile Application both designed by Bryan Litz.  Applied Ballistics seems to be the best out there - a bit pricey though at $30..

My preferred ballistic app is "Ballistic" on the iPad.    I have the i-phone version but the iPad version has more functionality.  

If I am creating comparisons for public consumption I use jbmballistics.com because I want people to be able to go themselves and replicate the data.

Of course, actual software on computers include Quick Design, Quick Load, Auto Cad, Inventor, Custom Excel spreadsheets with various mathematical models.

I've read a lot of good things about Shooters (http://www.shooterapp.net/) and Applied Ballistics (http://appliedballisticsllc.com/AB_app.htm).  They were both written by the Sean Kennedy using Bryan Litz's model (http://forum.snipershide.com/s4-sniper%92s-hide%AE-equipment/181504-shooter-applied-ballistics-app-android.html#post2408779)

I have two Ballistic AE and Nikon's Spot On. Which one I use depends on the rifle. The ones with the Nikon scope get the Spot In app for those catridges it isn't set for (M-308 scopes are set for 168 HPBT Match) and the rest get the Ballistic AE app. Either is great for general ballistic tables but the Nikon app is made specifically for their scopes, so that comes into consideration.

I mainly run shooter. My shooting buddy and I tested a bunch of the budget priced to free apps, and found shooter to be the most user friendly on an iPad or iPhone, and the easiest to make velocity and BC corrections in. Also a big plus for we Missouri folks is the powder temp correction built in. It works even works great with an android device.

Early in the year, I bought an iWatch, and found a ballistics app for it called SBC. I really like it except it only stores one firearm and load, where shooter I haven’t reached its limits yet, I’m up to 25 rifles and hundreds of loads. So with this SBC app for my watch I have only found on thing against it and that is, it only holds one rifle and load at a time but everything else is amazingly simple to use. I just quickly add the data from shooter of the rifle I am going to use into the watch if I am not going to take my phone with me shooting. If you have an iWatch it is worth checking out.
