I downloaded this free app a few months ago and enjoy playing around with it on occasion. It’s limited to Winchester products, so you can’t compare loaded ammo from other companies or your own handloads. But it’s pretty cool for what it is.
Below is a press release on the App from the Winchester web site.
iPhone users can now download Winchester® Ammunition’s award-winning Ballistics Calculator for free.
The iPhone version of Winchester’s Ballistics Calculator will allow users to choose their type of ammunition and compare up to three different Winchester products with easy-to-read, high-tech ballistic charts and graphs. You can customize shooting conditions by entering wind speed and outside temperature, adjust zero marks for sighting in.
The Web based calculator is also live at www.winchester.com/ballistics.
“With so many of our customers using iPhones these days, it’s only fitting that we provide this feature to them,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of domestic and international marketing and sales for Winchester Ammunition. “Having the Ballistics Calculator plugged into your iPhone while you’re at the range, or in the field will be a valuable tool. Users will be able to plug in conditions, test their ammo and then make adjustments, if necessary.”
Winchester teamed up with Quilogy, a St. Charles, Missouri-based IT and Marketing consulting company, to develop the state-of-the-art ballistics calculator for the iPhone. The Winchester ballistics calculator for the iPhone was designed to leverage the latest iPhone technology, such as the touch and tilt features; providing Winchester customers with a rich end engaging experience.
