    Kestrel Meter 4500NV Applied Ballistics Meter

    The Kestrel 4500NV with Applied Ballistics Meter is a sophisticated handheld meter for Shooters. The built-in applied ballistics software provides the following features:

     

  • Calculate accurate elevation and windage targeting solutions for long range rifle shooting.
  • Use either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients, OR select from the entire library of Applied Ballistics Custom CurvesTM for more than 200 common long range bullets.
      • Access to the entire Applied Ballistics Custom Curve library requires the Applied Ballistics Profile Loader PC application together with either Bluetooth® data transfer capability on the Kestrel Meter and PC, or the Kestrel Computer Interface accessory. The Applied Ballistics Profile Loader is a free download from the Kestrel website.
    • Train the software to match your specific rifle based on observed impacts at subsonic and supersonic ranges with the True Muzzle Velocity and Drop Scale Factor capabilities.
    • Built-in crosswind calculator and target range estimator.
    • Select “Weather Mode” to measure up to 15 environmental parameters at your fingertips.

      The Kestrel Shooter's Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics Technology measures up to 15 environmental parameters and allows users to select from either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients (BC) when calculating a trajectory at the range.  The handy, portable meter also offers the “Litz” measured BC library of over 225 bullets, which is considered to be the most extensive source of measured data for modern small arms bullets.  Users can also train the Kestrel Shooters Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics software to match a specific rifle based on observed impacts at long range with the ballistics calibration feature, which offers even more accurate data points for users to rely on.  With easy access to more accurate BC data, shooters have everything they need to make a much more precise trajectory calculation in a compact and durable Kestrel meter design.


      The Kestrel Shooter’s Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics allows users to select either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients, or to be even more specific and select from an entire library of Applied Ballistics Custom Curves for more than 200 common long-range bullets. 

       

      Please note that access to the full Applied Ballistics Custom Curve library REQUIRES the Applied Ballistics Profile Loader PC application together with either Bluetooth® data transfer capability and PC, or the Kestrel Computer Interface accessory. The Applied Ballistics Profile Loader is available free to download on this page. For full gun and bullet profile customization and backup, we recommend our customers purchase the unit with Bluetooth wireless data transfer for ease of use and functionality.

       

      Kestrel With Applied Ballistics and Bluetooth

       Kestrel 4500NV Applied Ballistics Meter with integrated Bluetooth® technology offer the ultimate in portable and accurate environmental data. Now, both real-time and logged data can be transferred wirelessly and automatically to a laptop or PDA, making a Kestrel Shooter's Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics and Bluetooth® technology the perfect tool for virtually any job that requires quick and reliable data.  

       

      What's the difference between the Applied Ballistics and the Horus version?

      The main differences between the two models is The Applied Ballistics model has a different truing application with drop scale factor, it has bullet length as a standard gun input (used to calculate spin drift) offers +\- angle input and has the ability to use G1,G7 and custom drag profiles. The unit comes Pre loaded with 7 custom curves, and the Gun loader will have over 100 custom drag profiles to use.  These will NOT be able to be manually added, they must be done through the software... So you'll either need the bluetooth or the USB interface.   

       

      Kestrel 4500NV Applied Ballistics Meter Features

        • Calculate accurate fire control solutions for long range rifle shooting.
        • Select either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficient when calculating a trajectory.
        • Get ballistic coefficient data for more than 225 long range bullets.
        • Load up to 16 guns, 1 bullet each.  In the case where you have multiple ammo types for a given rifle, you need to enter a whole new gun for each ammo type.  
        • The AB Kestrel comes with numerous pre-loaded drag models, but not entire gun/ammo profiles.  In other words you have to build your gun profile, but you can choose from the list of bullets when modeling your ammo.
        • Measure up to 15 environmental parameters at your fingertips.
        • "Train" the software to match your specific rifle based on observed impacts at long range
        • Calculates and adjusts for gyroscopic spin drift and Coriolis effect
