Do any of you have experience with reloading computer software programs that are being offered?
If so what do you find most useful? What do you not fine useful.

Have several programs - the Sierra, the Hornady and the Load from a Disk, primarily. These are used for general info.

Have just about all the older and current reloading manuals (love to peruse them - good reading!) and use them for actual load workup. Of all, I reach for the Lyman manuals before any of the others.

Hi, Swifty:
For reasonably good external ballistics, use PointBlank. It's a bit off at long range, but it's FREE!

If you really have to reach out and touch something, use the external ballistics calculator in Ballistician's Corner.

It's actually a link to Brad Millard's site, where there's lots more on ballistics.

For internal ballistics, Suggest-A-Load at John Ross's site looks like an extended version of the old Powley computer. You can get down to small cartridges like the .357 Magnum on it, although it doesn't do low pressure ones like the .38 Special.

If you really want to play with the Powley equations, find them at Donna's badly underused site under IMR Powders.
