Ballistic: The Ballistic Calculator for the Serious Shooter

USA -( Like many hunters and shooters, I’ve missed a few times over the years, maybe more than a few times if truth be told. Those misses have been caused by a variety of reasons, including not properly calculating the correct hold on game, especially at longer ranges.

To prevent missing shots, I’ve tried many ways to improve, from reading books to getting training. During the many hours on the range, I’ve also worked on understanding the ballistics of my rifle – drop, energy, velocity, and the impact of weather conditions. This is how I found Ballistic.

Ballistic is a Ballistic Calculator that can be used to determine shot placement by automatically calculating dope through the world-renowned JBM ballistics engine.

However, Ballistic is much more than just a basic trajectory calculator, as it also provides information on weather conditions, scope reticles and includes a proprietary ballistic library with the corresponding performance data for more than 5,300 projectiles, factory loads and military loads.

My two favorite features of Ballistic have to be the Heads-Up Display and Advanced Rangefinder, to dial-in quick adjustments and a real-time readout in the dynamic display.

Ease of use is paramount and being able to quickly dial-in details will make the difference when lining up that perfect shot. Ballistic more than meets this requirement. Getting started is a breeze, with just a few simple variable inputs and taps of the screen, a shooter will be on their way to taking those impressive shots one only hears about on television and in YouTube highlight clips.

A robust set of instructional videos are also available on their website.


  • Ballistic offers it users one of the most comprehensive load libraries in the industry as well as allowing the user to input their own handload.


  • Input the Scopes sighting characteristics
  • A simple tap on the location icon at the top of the page and Ballistic will draw all the needed weather conditions at the shooter’s position from the nearest weather station or paired device.
  • With the weather conditions in place the shooter simply needs to input the zeroing distance (the standard being 100 yards)


  • Once the info above is filled out and ready to go, all the shooter has to do is scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap Calculate Trajectory.
  • Watch as all of the needed adjustment information to take that epic shot appear at your fingertips.


Ballistic supports the shooter who is serious about taking the perfect shot, to calculate and store every aspect of needed data to take those long-range shots all the time, every time.

A robust set of instructional videos are also available on their website.

About Ballistic:

Ballistic is the definitive ballistics trajectory calculator for iOS devices, intended for serious shooters who want a serious (and seriously accurate application).

Ballistic calculate trajectory, windage, velocity, energy, lead, and bullet flight time for any valid range. Ballistic can compensate for atmospheric conditions such as temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, and altitude (it can also accept density of air or density altitude input).

The world-renowned JBM Ballistics computer is powering all of Ballistic’s computations. JBM is used by world-class shooters everywhere to deliver some of the most precise calculations. You’ll even be able to take JBM’s extremely accurate calculations with you, even into areas with no cellular coverage.
