Real-time field firing solutions utilizing current pressure (station or barometric), temperature, humidity, wind velocity, target range and velocity, and shot angle. Same powerful ballistic computation engine as used in desktop program
  • Pejsa Ballistics - The advanced novel methods devised by Arthur Pejsa permit air drag to be modeled precisely by simple, exact formulas for unheard-of precision. The software program computes trajectories, velocity, flight time, wind deflection, etc. with near-perfect accuracy. Other programs assume a fixed drag curve, usually that prescribed by the popular Ingalls Tables, which poorly fit the drag curves of modern, streamlined projectiles. With the Pejsa Ballistics program, velocity and drag data can be matched, permitting unequaled precision. With this program, shooters may, for instance, specify any hit height at any range or a maximum height at midrange. Output data may be in tables or plotted as curves. Ballistic coefficients, recoil, midrange, etc. may be computed as well as effects of temperature, altitude and inclines. This superior program is user-friendly, complete and, above all, ACCURATE enough to serve as the reference for evaluating other formulas and programs.

  • Ballisic Explorer - Ballistic Explorer is the finest exterior ballistics software on the market and the only external ballistics software you need. Whether hunting, target shooting, or competition shooting you need to know the ballistic performance of your factory ammo or handloads all the way to the target, and only full featured ballistics software can give you the answers you need.
  • Proven accuracy -- Anyone can claim their software is accurate, but Ballistic Explorer is proven accurate in real world conditions. If accurate real world ballistics are important to you, then you should be using Ballistic Explorer. With Ballistic Explorer you can calculate downrange data for virtually any load and set of conditions. Problems that, just a decade ago, would have required the knowledge of an expert ballistician can easily be solved by anyone using Ballistic Explorer. Power and ease of use are the hallmark of Ballistic Explorer. Ballistic Explorer has been on the market since 1988, and through many versions, it has evolved from the low resolution monochrome displays of that time to the sophisticated Windows interface of today. Yet many of the fundamental features of that 1988 program are still evident in the newest version. These features have withstood the test of time because they are what users wanted then and still want today.
  • KAC Bullet Flight - Knight's Armament BulletFlight is a military-grade ballistic computer that provides quick solutions in the field. BulletFlight does not output information in table format but rather dynamically gives you the solution you need now to make that shot. Current weather conditions including temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed, and wind direction can be input, as well as angles to the target as measured by the built-in accelerometer. The app then provides highly detailed solutions out to 3000 meters. Your weapon profile includes your scope MOA/mRad per click, and hence when you provide a range to the target, the app will simply show how many clicks you need to change the scope by for that range and wind speed. Up to five ballistic coefficients with corresponding velocity thresholds may be used for each profile to enhance accuracy, or use a single G1, G7, or G8 value. Several built-in profiles for the Army's M110 semi-automatic precision rifle, the 14.5 inch SR16 rifle, The 50 BMG M107, .308 M40A3, .308 M24, and the 6.5mm KAC PDW allow you to get started quickly. You may alter these profiles, or add new ones. This app is currently in combat use by military snipers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
