First use, 1034 yards!
Got the app because I have been using Hornady 6.5 CM 140 ELD Match with my Ruger Precision. Spent about 30 minutes going through the app and figuring out all the features. Punched in all the weather data I could find from a local Davis weather station, ranged with a Bushnell Elite 1 mile, used the shooting angle and Azimuth features...bang! First round hits and solid groupings at 259, 451, 721, and 5/10 hits at 1034 yards. Wind was gusty 20-30mph. The suggested adjustments the app gave me were spot on. This app made me look a professional with years of experience. Have used it numerous times after that first outing with similar results. My advice: take your time figuring out how the app works, and if you’re not using a Kestrel, search for the closest weather station and use that data for weather input.
Ok but what did I even pay for in app?
This app is pretty good, at least as good or better than other free options. I opted into the range cards feature and I am still struggling to figure out what I even paid $.99 for. I mean, $.99 not a big deal I already wasted more than $.99 worth of my time on this review. I was under the impression that I could create a range card that I could DO SOMETHING with, like maybe export it into excel, or at the very least email it to myself from the app as a PDF so I could print it. As far as I can tell there is no way to put the information on a “card” at all with this app. I ended up typing all the data into Excel from that the app gave me to make, wait for it a range CARD. I do not wish to be tethered to my phone especially while hunting and printing a range card for simple solutions is the easiest way to be comfortable with mid to long range shots, I wish this app offered a way for me to migrate the data in some way that would allow me to print it. At the end of the day this is all just math which is why there are dozens of these apps and they can all generate the exact same info so it all comes down to aesthetics and user interface. This app is ok in those departments.
Works great, read the instructions
I have been using this app for a while now, and have had no issues with either iPhone or iPad mini running the latest update. It has gotten first round hits on 1.5 MOA targets by just imputing the velocity and estimating the weather. And about the weather, it has a button you toggle to input the weather manually can’t really get any easier than that, or you can sync it with a Kestrel. It also has you login so that it can sync between devices and you don’t have to re-input your data all time for your favorite rifles or loads. Good grief people try reading the instructions.
