If you don't already have an iPhone then you don't know about all the cool applications you can run on it like this one.

 
The iPhone applications are unbelievable and extremely advanced, they make life much easier.

With the iPhone, there's an app for that too.

Might reveal how backwards I am, but the rotary dial is far cooler to me than the ballistics table (but that is very cool also).

Unbelieveable pyro.  My first phone at the farm had a mag crank on the side.

What the hell would we have done if we had only had digital watches - how would you know what clockwise meant?

I grew up with this style phone until the big push to "touch tone".

Bulletflight works well, there have been several revisions and all for the better.


It is a good program and, with some tweeaking, is pretty accurate.  At least it has been for me, out to 600 yards.

I haven't tried Bulletflight but I really like Ballistic.  Ballistic includes a very extensive library of factory ammo so I've got data for several different loads saved.

Bulletflight does not, it is limited (or mine is.)  Since I reload, that's OK by me.

I've been using Ballistic for a couple months now. It is comparable in results to JBM and has been easy to use. Ballistic has a Field Tactical Edition as well for a couple bucks more. Whatever you use, it's nice to have something you can tote around in a pocket while at the range. I use it on the Touch. If you have an iPhone, the optional locational/barometric settings can be a useful feature.

What about walk and chew gum?  Mom always said I had a problem with that one.

That's why I just have the Touch...the iPhone w/o the phone (and the $2400 two year contract...that's optics money). Don't forget, you could probably hook up some of those fancy noise cancelling headphones and rock out while you're shooting.
