With integrated Applied Ballistics software, Kestrel users are now able to select from either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients (BC) when calculating shot trajectory.
Boothwyn, PA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
Nielsen-Kellerman (NK), designer and manufacturer of Kestrel® Weather & Environmental Meters, has partnered with Applied Ballistics, Inc., experts on the science of accuracy and precision for long-range shooting, to launch an addition to Kestrel’s Ballistics Weather Meter line of products. The brand-new Kestrel Shooter’s Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics allows users to simultaneously measure up to 15 environmental parameters to calculate accurate fire control solutions for long-range rifle shooting.
With integrated Applied Ballistics software, Kestrel users are now able to select from either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients (BC) when calculating shot trajectory. The new Ballistics Kestrel also offers the “Litz” measured BC library containing more than 225 bullets; this library is widely considered to be the most extensive source of measured data for modern small arms bullets. In addition to these features, users can “train” the software to match a specific rifle based on observed impacts at transonic and subsonic ranges with the ballistics calibration feature. With more accurate BC data, shooters are empowered to have more confidence when shooting at Extended Long Range (ELR).
Like all Kestrels, this meter is IP67 waterproof and MIL-STD-810F rugged, allowing users to avoid the expense and weight of a ruggedized PDA. The new unit also allows PC access to a full bullet catalog with the Bluetooth® wireless data transfer option.
