    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Good enough post for me. This has all been interesting, and I could talk or listen for days on the nuances. Marketing aside, Hornady seems to be doing some interesting things, how much that will help shooting who knows. For the mean time and the forsee able future I'll keep using my AB...

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Who are "you guys"? As an accomplished of a shooter as Bryan is, it's not really relevant to how good of a ballistician he is. Not to slight him in that department either as he's well accomplished there as well. Of course so is Dave Emary Hornady's chief ballistician. I doubt either one of...

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Who knows, why is AB off for me currently? (Again using Litz bullet Data, Kestrel weather meter, and magneto speed for velocity) I have no idea what you guys did before hand, and given the inherent bias that both teams would have to prove their program is right I would only trust the out come...

    Totally not the point. Given enough time to prepare, both programs shold be able to be calibrated to give the same results.

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    The only thing it may prove is which team knows how to run their software better. If you want to see which is more accurate take some random guy, that's shooting a bullet both programs would have to have, and plug in his data and see who is closer, without any trueing. Luckily we can all be...

    What would that prove exactly? If a guy showed up, and beat both of them without using a Ballistic solver and just whipped out his DOPE book, would that mean that ballistic solvers are worthless all together?

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Indeed Hornady's took personal attacks as well, and watching their first video when that claim came up my first thought was "The AB team is not going to like that one bit" I figured a response would come, only as We've been calculating AJ and using custom drag curves for awhile now. Instead...

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Certainly not, at least not in any major way, I use their bullets, amunition and some of their reloading tools, but I use AB'S app and drag curves and have bought a couple of Bryan's books and plan to get the rest eventually. I've been watching the discussion on Hornady's new solver, actually...

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    While I have no doubt that this was all well intentioned, it certainly hasn't come off that way. When you say that the radar is only as good as the people using it, then people come in and say that AB is better because they have a rocket scientist, it comes of as, and comfirms, a level of...

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Ah, the old "Two wrongs make a right" argument. You're not unbiased, there lies another problem, even the way you have worded your responses reflects this. For instance, AB "Calculates" all their corrections and Hornady "Estimates" all of theirs. Certainly no bias at all... I mean...

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    And yet some people on the Applied Ballistics team decided to make it personal. Neither side is right here.

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Part of the unprofessional part about this whole thing are post like this one. Dave Emary is a pretty accomplished ballistician, working for the government and the military, Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and Aeronautical/Astronautical engineering from Bowling Green and the Air Force...

    It's not, they intend to release more bullets as time progresses, I believe they've stated somewhere in here.

    Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Program

    Yea because Dave Emary is just some nobody... Outdoor Life™ Names Dave Emary Among Most Influential People - Hornady Manufacturing, Inc That's part of the unprofessionalism that's been displayed.
