Best ballistics app


This is the best ballistics app out there and worth every penny. While the user interface is a little clunky, it’s still miles above any comparable app.

As a hunting guide, I need to have data for each clients gun and ammo available offline. This app makes that easy and convenient with an extensive library of factory loads to choose from. I really like the reticle view feature for being able to show clients exactly what the reticle looks like and where to apply a wind hold.

One issue that I’ve found is with importing the local atmospheric conditions. Even with the “Disable Wind Population” turned on (so that the local station values don’t mess up my preferred 10 MPH / 90* wind value), I am still getting local wind populated into my chart and One Shot views, so I have to go back and delete the imported wind and manually enter 10 MPH / 90* winds.

Overall, it’s a great tool and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for a phone based ballistics calculator.

Decent App; Great data


Edited: At first I really disliked the app. I had 3 main issues with it, 1 of which was user error. The second issue was the user interface, which is still not very good, but workable. The third issue is that it doesn’t work right on the I-pad.

Brass tax. If you want quick results, this is not your app. You have to be willing to dive into the users manual (available online) and work past some confusing set up criteria. But if you want the best data and you’re willing to spend some time getting to know the app, you’ll be very pleased, so long as you aren’t on an i-pad.

Great calc but the UI needs work

11/27 updated review.
The recent updates solved the calc issues that plagued this app (Yay!) but the UI still need work. On an iPhone 7 Plus, the font size in the rifle and load selection pages is too large and jumbles the text to display too many “...”. Fix the fonts and would easily make this a 4 star app.
