New Mobile Ballistics Calculator

I'd like to announce the availability of a new mobile ballistics calculator: MOBALL.



This tool is offered to long range hunters and tactical shooters who need to calculate accurate sight corrections in the field based on current shot conditions. Many of the previously available mobile ballistics programs are not compatible with G7 BC's. This was the main motivation for creating this program. In addition to the G7 capability, this program also allows the user to calculate and correct for the effects of: spin drift, coriolis drift, and multiple winds in up to 3 zones.

The program runs on a Texas Instruments (TI) Voyage 200 graphing calculator. This is not a network device. It's a stand alone unit that can be used as a powerful graphing calculator when you're not using it for ballistics.

MOBALL does not compromise on accuracy. Trajectory output agrees with the trusted online JBM program and the Point Mass Ballistics Solver (PC program included with my book: Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting) to within 0.2" of drop at 1000 yards given similar inputs.

MOBALL is not the only option for calculating ballistics in the field. But for those who don't currently own a cell phone/plan (iPhone, smart phone, etc) which supports any of the existing mobile ballistics programs, MOBALL provides an option that is complete, accurate, and 'un-hooked' from other devices.

Enjoy,
-Bryan

    Not bad.

    How much 'less than 1 pound' is it? Does it also run using the drag model G5?

    Thanks Michael.

    To be precise, the unit weights 13.8 ounces.

    No G5, just G1 and G7.

    Take care,
    -Bryan

    It does have a lot of buttons, but you don't need to use them all

    Here are some screenshots of the input blocks.

    These first 3 are the basic (required) inputs:
