All my books are about 10 to 20 years old. About 8 years ago I bought the Sierra reloading program. It never lived up to expectations.
Has any one found or use a computer program that actually works? I would like to find on the lists load data, ballistic tables, component info and record keeping. I would think that with all the advancements in computers there should be something out there.

An I use Excell for my own load data. and print off sheeet into a load sheet with load data, rifle, and sight-in data included. drop I import onto the sheet from RCBS ballistics program that I have on disc.
After you make your own custom "form" in word or excell it only takes a few minutes to import the data and it makes a great hard copy data box in my 3 ring binder.
There are 2 programs to give indications of loads, "Load from a disk" and "Quick load", I believe the first is $60 and the latter is $120.
Both are for jacketed bullets, I e mailed both co.'s and asked about cast bullets, both said it would not be very close with cast bullets because the resistance was so much less with cast.
