Mac OS 10.10.5 (Yosemite)
I don't own a Mac so can't test it myself, but would this version work for you?
I used my bdc Nikon 3x to collect this coyote from 400yds.
I'll admit, it was his unlucky day, yet the facts remain....the bdc worked.
All my cf rifle scopes are bdc now.
Nice shot! I've been thinking about getting into predator hunting up here, but it pretty much requires a snowmachine as it seems to be a primarily winter activity, but I digress.
It works, but it doesn't show an image of my reticle and the actual yardage and that different aimpoints, as bl87's post illustrates.
Gotcha, was wondering if it was an older version that wouldn't show it or have updated reticles.
I don't know how computer savvy you are, but the other option I was going to suggest was using an Android emulator and running Strelok in the emulator in your computer. The apk file isn't hard to find if you look around online.
Being very computer savvy, I'd recommend finding an old "off service" cell phone and using it for "apps" instead of messing around with Android emulators -- used them out of necessity back in the Android 2.2 days when I was being paid to write software, but it quickly became apparent that buying me a real phone to use was far cheaper than the time I was wasting messing around with emulation.
You can thy this in Chrome web browser to run a single app as if it were running on a Chromebook:
I've never tried it.
The problem with that is Apple drops supports for those phone, so you can't update those devices to the newest iOS; that means you can't download/run new apps, and, if you update your apps, they stop working. I have two older i devices, and neither of them can do anything other than play media and take photos-most of the apps are dead.
And I'm not buying a new iPhone/iPod/iPad/Android directly because of that; they're just planned obsolescence machines.
Not to mention $200k even in 1971 dollars doesn’t last forever...
I6’s can be bought for a hundred bucks around here. No need to update the iOS if all you’re doing is using it as a ballistic calculator. I still use an i6 for my office line, works fine, runs StrelokPro fine. WiFi E-readers/tablets are also readily available at low costs. I have an IPad Air2 which I use as an e-reader, and portable movie player when flying, it runs StrelokPro fine. I paid $120 shipped for it.
Hornady.com and use the 4DoF calculator for free is the best option if you refuse other mobile options.
FFP bdc wont change with magnification second focal plane bdc will be accurate to what ever magnification it was sighted in at.
