Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
4DOF is the way forward when it comes to long range ballistics. This is the most accurate ballistic computer out there; it has much more fidelity than any BC based solver.
Hornady is leading the pack, but progress comes with some cost. The app is already incredible, and the areas that need improvement, such as a notes field and a way to better organize firearms and the several loads one may shoot with them is coming. It’s chock full of Hornady’s long range Bullets and loads and includes some of the most popular Bullets from Hornady’s competitors, but not all of them. Hornady is adding more of its own products and those of it’s competitors all the time, but the 4DOF data collection process is slow. It’s the nature of the beast.
The app is made by shooters and it shows. If you’re running ELD-M or ELD-X, this is your app.
