Anyone here using Strelok, the ballistic calculator?

I recently put the app on my phone and I have to say, I'm impressed. All I did was put in the listed factory velocity of 2,960 fps for my 6mm Creedmoor, add the bullet BC info and then ask it to calculate "come ups" out to 600 yards.

The app told me I needed 11.3 MOA up from my 100 yard zero to hit at 600 yards.

I dialed in 11.5, and found I was just a touch high. Dropped it to 11.0, and the elevation was perfect!

I haven't used it a lot, but wow, saved me a lot of guessing.

I'm using Strelok as well ... tried the free version first then upgraded to the paid version. I especially like that you can select your reticle and it will show you the ranges represented by the tick marks depending on your zoom level that you selected on your scope.

I took a screen shot of what I was going to use, cut it out & taped it in the eye piece cover.... handy reference if needed.

Hi jjs405 - Does this software have the Leupold Bone and Crockett or Varmint Hunters reticle in their reticle database?

Yes. I use it and MD Ballistics. Strelok has a lot of reticles and updates very frequently.

A nice feature (paid version) is that you can program a bullet offset, if you use multiple weight and MV combos....especially in conjunction with range buddy which gives you the offset. The ballistic calc is also helpful if you are for instance considering a new bullet to go LR and want to see where the transonic zone would be according to BC vs predicated MV

I have been using Strelok Pro for at least 4 years. I have tuned it in correctly a few months ago. Now it's less that 0.1 mil off at 1000 yards (less than 3.6 inches).

All I have to do is get the wind call right.

I've been using strelok pro since the summer. Ive only been out to 512 yards, but the app works perfect. Really like the bc trueing device in the app.

OK, based on this knowledgeable group's feedback I paid the $9.99. So far I like it as it is fast and has a different zero atmo setting from your current firing situation. Very nice. Different results from the other ballistic calculators I have, but having a range of possible solutions helps me zero on the one that is true from my rifle and load. Thanks everyone for turning me on to this tool.
