Does anyone have or know where there's a good template for a ballistic profile card that I can populate and print to tape to my rifle butt?
I can't seem to find a website that doesn't print it off on a full sheet. I could create my own, I guess, in Excel, but why do that if someone's already done it!

Download Ballistic AE app to your phone, which is about $10. Input the relevant data and it can be exported as as Excel file. Size, trim, and laminate or cover with clear packing tape. The app is well worth the charge. There are free ballistics software calculators online. You might be able to copy the output or export, just have to tinker with them.

Hornady ballistic calc will probably do it, I just make a sticker and put it inside my scope cap.

I just use Excel. 25 yard increments, and make every hundred a grey field, instead of white. Nice to be able to make it print any size I want.

There are some good free downloads for the Apple iPhone or Android.

If you go past 400yrs or so you'll need to figure in environmental conditions.

Whatever u do if it's paper, u can get some clear packing tape. If u tap both side of the piece paper with clear packing tape, u can then trim off the edges and its then laminated. Decently water resistant.

Yes. You can also make multiple charts for DA in 1000' increments. I did this a few weeks ago, as a back-up.
