I've finally been dragged into the 21st Century kicking & screaming & have a smartphone.
A "Google Pixel 6a" which runs under Android.
My desktop is Win 10.
Both are the current builds.
My problem seems to be finding a ballistics app that I can run on both, the desktop at home & the phone at the range.
I found plenty for android & apple but precious little for Win.
I tried the Hornady offering but the desktop & phone versions are utterly different & I can't even use the same a/c login or password.
The desktop at least has a few .303 offerings but the phone app has exactly zero!
Anyone got a suggestion of something that will work on both, preferably with the same a/c & data sharing so I don't have to constantly re-invent the wheel?Ouch

Shamu, I use Strelok pro, but I’m using it on Apple devices (IPhone and IPad), not sure what else it is comparable with.

That came highly recommend & yes, there is an Android version.Thumbs Up
Unfortunately I don't see anything for Win Doze. Maybe I'll contact them & see if something is planned.

My contact with Hornady's tech support has been, shall we say "less than stellar"! unusual as they're usually very good.

I was pretty impressed with the Strelok pro app.  The predicted velocities at ranges out to 1000 yards were within 20 fps and elevation settings within 1 minute all the way to 1000.  And this was with my estimated muzzle velocity as I did not chrono the load first, I based it on Hodgdon reloading data tables.  

Strelock pro has a good database of bullet bc’s, you can use the avg bc or the G7 bcs (a function of bullet speed).

If you want to get onboard with Strelok, be quick. Its being removed for download platforms as Igor, the developer, is Russian based and the sanctions are impacting the availability of the app.

If you have it already, jump on the Strelok Ballistic User Group on Facebook. Igor frequents the page and is very quick to respond to queries or update requests.
