The Year That Was – And The Year That Will Be!
April 3rd, 2019 by team
During 2018, Ballistic helped tens of thousands of long-range shooters, competitors and hunters make precision shots, time and again. And Ballistic will be doing all that and more in 2019, with some additions to the world’s #1 ballistic calculator.
Ballistic utilizes the world-renowned JBM Ballistics engine. The same computer engine used by competition shooters, long-range hunters, and the military to deliver the most precise calculations possible.
Those calculations begin to take form the second a shooter creates his or her own Ballistic Bullet Profile. That profile contains all the basic inputs–including the manufacturer’s ballistic coefficient and bullet weight, sight height, and
muzzle velocity, to name just a few-plus the all-important atmospheric conditions.
But Ballistic, unlike many of the apps available today, doesn’t stop there.
Ballistic also provides advanced features like a Mil-Dot and MOA rangefinder with heads-up display capabilities, GPS and atmosphere awareness, full-sized shooting charts, and a reloading companion.
With Ballistic, you can also input wind speed and direction in a manner of ways. You can use angle inputs (e.g., 90° = crosswind left to right) for the wind direction or the o’clock format (e.g., 3:00 will automatically translate to 90°). Headwinds can be added in, too, and Ballistic will automatically adjust velocity to account for your headwind calculation.
Ballistic’s Advanced Wind Kit allows shooters to quickly program in even the most complex wind scenarios, for up to eight wind sources. Simply tap to create a new wind zone and then slide it to the appropriate range.
For 2019, Ballistic will continue to be the top resource for the long-range shooting community. One way Ballistic will do this is by continuing to add to its data library–which is already home to over 5,000 projectiles and factory loads! And don’t be surprised if Ballistic offers an upgrade or two in the New Year, as the drive to improve fuels everything Ballistic does to help long-distance shooters make precision shots.
