Re: Applied Ballistics Mobile app

OK, I am game. Mine is down loading as I type this. I will be doing lots of comparisons to shooter and with all my logged actual field data. But the part I look forward to is the ELR Ballistic Calibration and to see how it applies to my logged data. It should save me a ton of work.

Jeff

Re: Applied Ballistics Mobile app

Bryan, Two questions.

1: The powder temperature correction is tossing me way off. When I disable it I am close , but I have to disable it every time. How do I turn it off permanently?

2: Same with the wind. Every time I go to the slution page it has a 10 mph wind. I would rather turn that off and enter it from the slution page. I am not a huge fan of the dial thing with the arrow.

Thanks
Jeff

Got mine and will be playing with it compared to "Shooter" also.

Re: Applied Ballistics Mobile app

Bryan,
at what velocities are your custom drag curves collected from? In other words, how far out can we trust them? For the 338 Hybrid it seems to be pretty mutch identical to the built in G7 value out and beyond 1500m. (0.1 mil difference @1500m, 0.3mil difference @2000m)

Edit: forgot to mention that my first impression of this app is really good. Looking forward to testing it in the field!

Bryan,

Sounds like another good ballistic app.

With the inbuilt bullet data library, is it the same as "Shooter"and will "AB" be updated with new B.C. numbers as you do more testing?

Re: Applied Ballistics Mobile app

Broz,

1) We'll look into keeping the powder temp disabled. In the mean time, you could set the MV/temp variation to 0 in the ammo profile so it has no effect when enabled. You can make a note at the bottom of the ammo profile of what your temp variation is so the number isn't lost.

2) regarding the wind, you can go to preferences, and check 'Save Atmosphere'. That will keep all your atmospheric parameters including wind the same as last time you entered them.

JV,
The custom curves are good for all speeds from Mach 4 (~4,464 fps) to zero. It is possible that the bullet can encounter some induced drag at transonic speeds. This can happen by different amounts in different atmospheres, and that's what the ballistic calibration is for.

Topshot,
The BC and custom drag library will continue to be updated with the newest BC and drag data as it becomes available.

Thanks for trying the app guys!

-Bryan

Re: Applied Ballistics Mobile app

I just bought and downloaded your app Bryan, glad to offer you support.
After playing with it for a while I will do a write up on my web site and let the boys know what I think of it.

I expect you will get quite a few more downloads from down under!
