Very Basic, limited value to shooter
This is essentially a very basic drop calculator with some built in loads for salesmanship and extremely limited usefulness to a shooter.
There are several glaring usability issues.
The ballistics calculator does not save the last entered data but instead auto resets the form just because you back out to the main menu. There is no reason for this, there is a reset button if you wanted to reset! The load would have to be saved but you might have just been dabbling with variations and not want to save but also not want to re-enter everything again!
The ballistics table display doesn’t format right to fit on the screen (iPhone 7) and you have to move it sideways to see it all... that is ridiculous to say the least and super sloppy. Yeah I had inches and MOA displayed, but if you can’t display them both don’t offer to!
There is nothing here about stability, corialis, sighting angle (of course all ranges are flat... ok experts, sure). No indicators for supersonic and transonic barriers, poor atmospherics (no humidity), only wind speed not direction so you have to do the reduction for angle yourself.
There is no way to ‘reload’ and modify a saved load, you just have to re-enter everything.
This isn’t even ready for beta release as a ballistics calculator. It’s hardly more than a crayon and a napkin.
I suppose it’s primary value is having a BC number published by Federal to take and put into a real calculator.
Great basic ballistics tool.
Love the app for its basic simplicity to help with SIMPLE ballistics characteristics. A feature for barrel length (pistol, carbine, or rifle) would be helpful for more accurate muzzle velocities. I also wish it would allow zero or negative sight heights to allow calculations for bore level or under bore mounted lasers. One problem I have discovered is that the delete a saved calculation feature no longer works. I seem to remember it working prior to the last update. Still love the app though.
Wish it was more up to date
I really like this app and its functions, but I started using a new load that the website had all the information for yet the app still doesn't. Five stars when you add the Accubond 90 grain .243
