Reloading programs/software? I have Quickload and in order to make the data accurate you need a chronograph to find your actual velocity then change the powder burn rate in Quickload to make the velocities to match your chronograph readings. Even after doing this you still do not know if the Quickload chamber pressure reading are accurate. In other words Quickload give guesstimates, you can take the data from a reloading manual and input it into Quickload and the resulting pressures and velocities are not even close to what is in the manual.
There are just too many variables between the same type and caliber firearms for this software to be spot on and give accurate readings. In simple terms you would be better off buying a strain gauge to get "actual" pressure readings and a chronograph to get accurate velocity readings. Buy as many reloading manuals as you can get and just average the data, then start low and work up studying your primers and brass for pressure signs.

RSI’s Shooting Lab Ballistics Software for Hunters & Shooters. Shooting Lab ™ was the first component of the Shooting Lab system introduced in 1998. Federal Premium ammo is the most technologically advanced sporting ammunition available. If you're in to hunting, personal defense, or casual shooting, we have.
Below is an example of the pressures and velocities between . Quickload is a educational toy but you would learn much more by reloading your ammo and shooting it than sitting at the computer playing with computer generated guesstimates. If I had to do it over I would have spent the money toward a Magnetospeed chronograph and gotten real data.

Just curious, aside from the wealth of info available in print and on the internet, are there any reloading/ballistics programs that you would recommend?
