We recently attended the Worlds Longest Shot Challenge, where our team took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the Over 338 class. We did this using a bullet that had never been fired beyond 1000 yards before the event. By the end of the event, that bullet design had hit a target at 2 miles. There are actually 2 prototype bullets and both placed in the top 3 at this event. The Berger 375 Solid Prototypes.

At this event we setup a mobile ballistics lab along with the help of Ken Oehler. With Radar and the 88 system being used at 2400 yards shooters were given the chance to fire over both system and get print outs of the general data. Taking this one step further, we had the ability to compile the data and push to the apps via AB Connect™ right there in the field.


One of the shooters at the comp took the ammo we had loaded for a rifle (not tuned for his rifle) shot 5 shots over the Radar, then checked zero, and got a 1st round hit at 2 miles.

Just sharing all this to give something to think about. We do plan to attend more events, and we are not against setting the system up again. Is the future of ballistics app where you select your own Personalized Custom Drag Models from the library instead of a manufacturer and bullet? Who knows, but the results were incredibly promising.

That's pretty amazing doc! Things have sure changed rapidly in long range shooting. Not many years ago, it wouldn't have been possible, or even thought to be. Congrats!!.....rich
