Re: Applied Ballistics Mobile app

Field Report!!

I just test drove the new AB Mobile app. Last night I plugged in some of my field data into it from previous shots taken.

Just went out in the yard and picked a 1 moa rock at 905 yards.

Here is the scoop

Distance 905 yds
Temp 80*
Hum 20%
shoot angle 6*
6 MPH wind at 9:00
Spin drift enabled

AB gave me a shooting solution of

U 19.1
L 2.6

I dialed 19 up and 2 1/2 left and put 4 on the rock just a tad right of center. My wind call was light by 1 mph or they would have been spot on. But still plenty good, as all 4 went into under 3/4 moa just .25 moa right.

I know this is not that long of a shot, but it for sure was 4 one and done kills.

Rifle was my 338 LM with 300 Bergers

I will stretch her out farther soon and let ya know how it goes.

Re: Applied Ballistics Mobile app

Looks awesome, just got home and got it down loaded and ran some numbers through it, they match up as they should with Shooter so far.

Did notice a couple things though, if I go to home and come back in to AB it starts me of on the rifle page and I have to go from there as apposed to bring in me back to the solution screen like Shooter, major pain in the butt if I go out to us a GPS or notebook app and I come back into AB.
The reticle tool is outstanding, can we get more than +50 though cause some are tying on everything the optic has then holding over also I can't enter more than a single digit so I have to hold + till I get where I want, just a little slow. Super sweet tool, looking forward to more reticles!!
I also noticed the Coriolis on the HUD shows A63/L0 but in the reticle tab it is A63/L45.21.

I punched in the data we've been using in Shooter for a 338 RUM and a 300gr OTM and at my elevation it's showing me that I'd need to shoot to 3600 yards to make it to step two in the Ballistic cal, is that telling me I should be able to get my trajectory on with the Library G7 BC assuming everything else is nuts on, using only the velocity to at least the step one range of 1980 yards ?

Broz,

Good shooting, the app looks like it will get the job done!

Out of interest, did you use the supplied Litz data or did you use your own derived B.C. data?

I used the data my rifle had exibited in previous shooting with these bullets at the altitude where I live.

Thanks Jeff,

That's what I hope you would say. So you would say there is consistency between results "Shooter" gives and what "AP" gives.

I hope to get a chance to get out this weekend and send some rounds out wide and see how this "AP" program works. Looking forward to it.........

Yes the numbers from both programs are running close as far as what I have compared. But I do see some slight differences. I would assume those slight differences will make more difference when you get way out there and that is what I want to see as soon as I get time. It Will be interesting to compare them both after the shot to see which would have been closer. The programs are a lot alike, with some option differences. I really like shooter so I am hoping the AB probram will be like a new and improved shooter.
