Optima Elite 45 Custom Smokeless 300 Yards

I finally got my smokeless sighted in and thought I would share the Strelok Ballistic App and how it worked for me.

Thought this would be some helpful information for any of you using apps for your phone.

Last week I was able to re mount my Vortex Crossfire II 4-12 BDC scope back on my 45 slufoot conversion. I found the Strelok App and was able to use it for longer range shooting. I was only able to test two shots since I only had two left from sighting in. I thought this would be a helpful app and thought to post my results.

Here is what you put in.

Distance, yards=300
Slope angle=0
Wind speed=0
Wind Direction=0
Weather=
Rifle=45/70
Scope 183/1.5/.025/.025 MOA
Zeroing Weather: 2500/45/30
Cartridge: 2500FPS/45/1.4/.200


Once you get all the information in it will show your reticle which mine looked like this for shooting at a 300 yard target



I took the two shots at 300 to see how close it was and I feel this will be a good app to use. Here is where I hit at 300 yards.



Very happy with the set up and hope to get 400 yards this week sometime.

All shots were

45 Smokeless Optima Elite

250 Hornady SST (.200 BC)
