Predicting a bullet's exact point of impact presents a challenge to all but the most well heeled shooters and hunters. Ted Werner, the Ballistic Wizard, a powerhouse hand-held ballistic computer, instantly provides real time firing solutions for a wide range of shooting situations. December 15, 2010 There are numerous factors that define a bullet's flight path, the two most significant are gravity and air resistance. Bullet and ammunition manufacturers like to use the ballistic coefficient or BC, a mathematical value used to define a projectile's aerodynamic efficiency, as a basis for their published performance data...First: The ballistic performance results are often delivered through computer modeling. Second: If the data is actually observed, it pertains to the gun and conditions present during the test and this is almost always different from those employed by the end user. Third: Published data tend to be generous in their performance results. Let's face it; the people publishing these are selling bullets and ammo! Fourth: Ballistic coefficient is misleading as it is a variable, being lowest at high velocities and highest at lower velocities. Therefore, it is only significant as an average across a specific range...The fact that the BC of your bullet at slower speeds may be less than half its BC at its muzzle velocity (so that you really need several BCs for each bullet) should tell you that the whole concept is badly flawed. ( http://longrangehunting.com/articles/long-range-drag-trajectories-1.php ) Gravity is a well known and quantifiable constant. However, to develop decay in velocity data the Ballistic Wizard uses the muzzle velocity, a down range velocity, and the distance between them and then applies a retardation factor to deliver dead on results for a specific gun and loading. This means that an individual will have the exact performance information for his gun and ammo. Better yet, it can be customized to remember data for up to 4 guns! With this data the Ballistic Wizard develops:          Maximum Height        Far Zero          Terminal Velocity         Velocity @ Distance          Drop        Energy @ Distance          Mid Range Point        Maximum Range          Point Blank Range         Time To Target          Time Ascending         Target Lead          Time Falling         Sight Correction          Near Zero     All answers are supplied using true 1.047 @ 100 yard minute of arc, M.O.A. It doesn't matter if a shooter is using a conventional cross hair rifle scope, red dot, holographic, or iron sight, pinpoint calculation of bullet drop and sight correction using accurate minute of arc results especially at extreme ranges is critical. A frequent question that concerned shooter asks is, What is the maximum range for my gun? It is not just a curiosity question, but one that can invoke serious safety ramifications as well. If you are shooting on a certified gun range, where adequate backstops are provided, this question might not be so important. However, when hunting or shooting in open country it is important to know just where your bullet may land. ( http://www.loadammo.com/topics/may01.htm ) In addition, the Wizard computes Optimum Twist Rate, Bullet RPM, and Power Factor. AR15s, Remington 700 Sniper Rifles, and Barret Long Range Rifles. It is also of interest to the big game or white tail deer hunter shooting a Winchester Model 70, Weatherby, or Browning Sporting Rifle...Bench rest and target shooters need to know the correct synchronization of bullet length and rifling twist rate to properly stabilize the bullet...The Wizard is a useful piece of hunting gear because it calculates maximum point blank range, or PBR. This is the distance within which the bullet rises and falls a predetermined amount above and below the line of sight. In other words, if the kill zone of the target, for example, a white tail deer, is a 6 circle, the Wizard will calculate the maximum distance within which all accurate shots will fall within a 6 inch vertical zone. Recoil is always an area of interest and can be divided into 3 components: Velocity, Force, and Felt Recoil. The Wizard cannot quantify felt recoil, as this is a function of numerous shooter specific variables such as, the individual's body mass, flexibility, stance, grip, etc. However, the Wizard can apply physics formulas to the relevant data pertaining to the gun and ammunition, and accurately calculate the recoil energy and velocity...While the statistical recoil of a firearm can be calculated mathematically fairly easily, and is the same for a given gun weight, bullet weight, powder charge, and velocity, the shooter's perceived recoil is effected by several things:         Tightness with which the firearm is held.         Height of the boar above the center of the stock line or wrist for pistols.         Shape and design of the butt plate or the pistol's grip.         Weight of the firearm.         Physical and mental condition of the shooter.
