New Intenal Balistics Software Tool

Postby buckeye43210 » Thu Nov 12, 2020 2:06 pm

Looks like we may now have a QuickLoad alternative.

Gordon's Reloading Tool is a free modern Professional internal ballistic simulation for reloaders.

The Gordons Reloading Tool “GRT” is a software for handloaders and ammunition designers. It simulates combustion characterisics, pressures and bullet speeds through ballistic parameters and formulas.

GRT's purpose is to provide additional means to develop loads for handloaders and ammunition designers and to avoid excessive loads, weapons disintegration/fragmentation and/or injuries.

The most important features

- Individual loading data
- Bullet database
- Propellant database
- Calibre specifications according to CIP standard incl. automatically generated drawings
- Download & view official caliber specification documents
- Individual report output of the calculation results incl. printing
- Convert units and set individually
- Inspector for detection of input errors
- Quick help for input fields
- Input wizards
- Loading ladder incl. simultaneous display in diagram, interactive
- Automatic recoil and impulse calculation
- Powder comparison tables
- Parametric powder search
- Generic tolerance synthesis of charges
- Cross-sectional area calculation of barrels
- Black powder calculator
- Saving notes, images or other data in the load file
- Shot group analysis
- Automated tool for Optimal Barrel Time (OBT)
- PressureTrace II support: Display of pressure curve as overlay via simulation
- Caldwell, LabRadar, MagnetoSpeed, and ProChrono imports

That's great - unfortunately, it requires you to create an account and log in to get the software, and for whatever reason the account activation email isn't getting to me (and yes, I checked the Junk folder). Sigh.

Anyone that has successfully created an account and is able to download the software, can you PM me? Maybe we can work something out so I can get this tool...
