Re: LRH App

Mudrinner,

One of the big downfalls with most ballistic apps is that they give correct dial up info but do not give any indication of kill zone hit percentage.

A new LRH app should give the shooter an indication of what the hit percentage might be for any particular shot.

Inputs for this would include sections that would enable the app to give a fair chance of predicting the maxi mine distance that a shooter can take a shot at an animal and have a high percentage chance of putting the first shot inside the kill zone. Bryan Litz book “Accuracy and Precision” (an excellent read) gives a great description of the things that can effect the percentage chance of a particular shot landing within a particular size target. Ie The “WEZ” zone

Such things would include..
* Shooters wind reading ability, ie +or- say 2mph reading accuracy. This would be the shooters own skill level.
* Short range accuracy of the rifle.
* ES and SD of the velocity.
* Altitude
* Range uncertainty
* Plus all the standard inputs for a normal ballistic app. Such as velocity, BC, zero details etc.

As an example, a hunter with say a .308 thinking of taking a 855 yard shot at a deer with a 12” kill zone could have set his app up to give an output of the percentage chance of a successful kill shot. This would take into account the wind conditions, his rifles accuracy and his nominated wind reading skill level. If the app says the percentage chance is low, then he can use this information when making his decision to shoot or not.
He can get closer or pass up the shot.

Re: LRH App

Top, I think you might have misunderstood.

I was not talking about an app for shooting.... I was talking about a smartphone App for accessing the forum.
