 This book also offers an original contribution to the long range shooting sports: experimentally measured Ballistic Coefficient (BC) data for over 236 long range bullets of all popular brands.  With truly accurate BC’s, shooters are empowered to make very precise trajectory calculations.

Included Software

     Applied Ballistics For Long Range Shooting includes a CD containingVersion 2.0 of the Point Mass Ballistics Solver.  Combined with experimentally measured BC’s, this program is capable of modeling extremely accurate trajectories as verified in Chapter 8.  This program has the unique ability to calculate spin drift using a method described in Chapter 6.  Click here to see the instructions and capabilities of the included ballistics software.  New capabilities of Version 2.0 are:

  • Output to an easily printable text file.
  • Output trajectory in inches, centimeters, MOA and MILS.
  • Output bullet kinetic energy at all ranges.

About the Book 
     Exterior ballistics is a very mature science.  Unfortunately, many shooters have not been able to completely access this field of knowledge because it’s usually described in highly technical language.  The objective of this book is to explain the important elements of exterior ballistics in a practical way that can be understood and applied by shooters.

Great book. Haven't used the software as I already have a program. The book helps you understand what happens and why when you shoot. Very well written for all of us "non-scientists." Highly recommended.

Very good book: simple and yet complete. All major topics are covered well and there is a very detailed section on BCs that is probably the state of the art of the subject, albeit too deep if compared to the rest of subjects covered by the book. There is also a CD with a Windows/Apple ballistic calculator which is ok, but not stellar.


very good book that will help everybody with understanding ballistics and how to incorporate them into your shooting. Very practical and not just a bunch technical numbers that are worthless.


Easy to understand even if you are NOT a rocket scientist. Absolute MUST for long range shooting!!!
