Taking a truly long shot requires more than just steady aim. Regardless of skill level, long-distance shooting requires understanding of ballistics, wind, bullet drop, velocity and more.
Today’s military snipers are experts at determining these factors, as shown by the recent 2.2-mile shot made by a Canadian in Iraq. However, did you know that even the world’s best snipers use computer technology to help them calculate shots.
Ballistic calculates the many factors of shooting, such as wind, atmospheric conditions, ballistic coefficient, drift and drop. In fact, Ballistic has a load library containing information on more than 5,300 projectiles, factory loads, military loads and performance data from manufacturers, military testing and performance analysis.
Users can choose their load from this library or even input data from handloads to determine hold on targets. It can also be used to calculate atmospheric conditions, such as barometric pressure, elevation, temperature and more, either by inputting known data or by having Ballistic pull the information from the nearest weather station for both the conditions for when the gun was sighted, as well as conditions for the current location using GPS. Ballistic even has a feature for determining the wind for formulating bullet drift, as well as target movement.
Ballistic graphically displays energy, velocity and drop for current projectiles and even allows comparison for up to eight other projectiles on the same screen.
Ballistic uses the JBM Ballistics Engine, which is one of the most accurate ballistic calculators in existence, and provides that information in a user-friendly format for shooters of all skill levels. Ballistic provides everything needed for shooters to get serious about their shots.
