Re: Ballistics Watch
Save your $249.00 and buy a good ballistic program and chronograph for the less than this non-sense, or buy a good PDA program, ammo and other shooting accessories. Make range cards based on your actual data that has been verified or reverse engineered with a good ballistic program and tape them to your stock or log book. This watch is a waist of your hard earned money.
First it only uses a C1 drag model which is nothing different than a G1 drag model with a new name. It doesn't offer CD's which are much more accurate. What the maker of this program is saying, if I'm shooting a .308 VLD bullet and the person next to me is shooting a flat base round nose 30-30 point bullet, that program is going to use the same ballistic model to calculate both bullets external ballistics and be accurate...NOT! It doesn’t work that way. Even with different BC's those two bullets will have totally different flight characteristics. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Next getting your data input into the watch looks to be a pain in the ass, not to mention you'll need great eye sight to read the data. You can do better a lot better than this.
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
