Sold out

Now I’m beginning to understand why my messages to the original developer of the app went unanswered. He sold out to Federal Cartridge, a company whose own ballistic app was little more than a useless marketing ad. I had been begging the original developer to update the cartridge and projectile databases for nearly three years. Check the app update history. This is the first update in 2 years. This has been my go to app for over a decade. The data it’s solver generates is very accurate, provided you give it accurate correct inputs. Remember, garbage in equals garbage out. A very functional and easy to use app, still solid performer. But it has been lacking in some of the more recent projectiles and cartridges. Let’s hope the boys and girls from Anoka don’t F this up badly.

Windage Issues - No Fix. Creator Is A Turncoat

When this app first came out it was awesome. I loved it. However, about 18 months ago I noticed a glitch with the windage. Any time you change your maximum range your windage values completely change. I leave everything the same, it’s literally only the maximum range. So if you enter 500 yards as your maximum range your windage holdover may be something like 10”. Go back and change the maximum range to something else, let’s say 700, and now your 500 yard windage will say holdover is 15”. The further you go out the worse it changes. How can I trust this for competition, let alone hunting? I emailed the developer about this and they said they had no idea but would fix it. Well, here we are over a year later and still no patch. The straw that broke the camels back was that the original creator, Jonathan Zdziarsk, is an absolute turncoat. He believes AR-style rifles should be banned to the NFA list and has a lot of anti-gun rhetoric on his blog. Until the new owners publicly condemn his actions and prove he is not receiving royalties, I will no longer use or support this app. If that doesn’t bother you and you want to fork out the dough to buy this then go for it. Good luck with your windage values.

Great Ballistics Program

I don't usually write reviews and I am fairly new to precision shooting. But this program allowed me to go out and make accurate shots at 500 yards with hand loads. And by accurate I mean within a 6x6 inch plate (second shot after adjusting for wind). This app has a lot of features, which might be a little overwhelming for the first time user. But as soon as I got everything calibrated for my rifle, the ballistic charts are fantastic for my .308 ... Great app and in my opinion worth every dollar. The app is regularly updated and as I'm writing this review a new version is currently in beta. Very excited to see what results I get at further ranges.

Edit: used again for 1100 yards with my 6.5 creedmoor and shooting 12 inch steel plate. Got multiple hits, and initially really got me close to target. Have to do some adjustment, and verify hits at prior ranges. But great app! Highly recommended
