“Note: This is the highest level of BulletFlight (level M, Military). Also see BulletFlt L1 and BulletFlt L2 for lower-cost alternatives.
Knight’s Armament BulletFlight is a military-grade ballistic computer that provides quick solutions in the field. BulletFlight does not output information in table format but rather dynamically gives you the solution you need now to make that shot. Current weather conditions including temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed, and wind direction can be input, as well as angles to the target as measured by the built-in accelerometer. The app then provides highly detailed solutions out to 3000 meters. Your weapon profile includes your scope MOA/mRad per click, and hence when you provide a range to the target, the app will simply show how many clicks you need to change the scope by for that range and wind speed.
Includes over 1400 projectiles including carefully-measured G7 BC database for VLD bullets. BulletFlight’s G7 data is courtesy of Bryan Litz and I recommend his book: http://www.appliedballisticsllc.com/index_files/Book.htm
Up to five ballistic coefficients with corresponding velocity thresholds may be used for each profile to enhance accuracy, or use a single G1, G7, or G8 value.
Several built-in profiles for the Army’s M110 and M110C semi-automatic precision rifle, the Army’s new XM2010 sniper rifle, the 14.5 inch SR16 rifle, The 50 BMG M107, .308 M40A3, .308 M24, and the 6.5mm KAC PDW allow you to get started quickly. You may alter these profiles, or add new ones.
This app is currently in combat use by military snipers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Features: Android-specific interface. Built-in profiles for common military rifles, but easily add more custom profiles. Accurate bullet database with most major brands. 3000 meters range (2000 using simple screen). Fast and accurate ballistic computation using G1, G7, or G8 ballistic coefficients. Easy to use interface yet powerful and full featured. All relevant data on screen all at once. User interface designed to minimize chance of input errors. “Simple Screen” with distance wheel, but also “Full” screen where any exact range may be used. Output in inches, cm, MOA, Mils, and scope clicks. Option for Metric units. In most cases imperial and metric are visible at the same time. Direct input for scopes with either MOA or mRad metric input (such as Schmidt & Bender). Calculates 360 degree wind drift using either degree of O’Clock format input. Wind speed may be specified in either miles-per-hour or meters-per-second. Advanced atmospheric model. Uses GPS to locate nearest weather station and then automatically gets weather data and altitude (for most locations assuming compatible weather station) for ballistic computation. Sight-in weather may be logged and stored for automatic normalization to standard conditions. So you may sight in at any temperature or altitude and later be accurate at any other temperature or altitude. Built-in accelerometer will detect angle for improved accuracy. Computes actual BCs from collected data. Some users will do this for each log of ammo before a mission. Built-in mil-dot range calculator. Calculates bullet twist / stability with a highly-accurate formula. Computes bullet spin drift. Built-in help screen.”

PLEASE READ OUR NOTES ABOUT THE FREE VERSION!!!
In order to add additional rifle profiles or save/export range cards, you must purchase the Pro version. You can manipulate the free custom rifle to become any caliber you like as often as you’d like, BUT if you want to perform the tasks stated above, you must purchase the Pro version. It’s that simple.
Chart Mode creates a traditional style data chart from point A to point B. Like all modes, it is immediately responsive to weather updates and other changes.
Map Mode utilizes Google Maps to build range cards, and it range targets with GPS coordinates. This program offers the user the ability to plan on or off-site range cards with immediate ballistic solutions. In addition, the user is able to save and load these range cards for use at their convenience. This mode overlays crucial external ballistic data on satellite imaging in order to display a bullet’s performance along it’s path. It is our hope that the concept of GeoBallistics will present an effective way to educate shooters on external ballistics as well as promote ethical and accurate shooting.
Comp Mode is similar to Chart Mode, but users are allowed to enter a course of fire with varying azimuths and ranges to produce a list of line-item solutions. This is perfect for precision rifle comps or long 3-gun rifle stages.
Thank you for your support and please reach out to us if you have an issue. We are very responsive and eager to fix any issues that arise. Hiding behind poor reviews doesn’t serve anyone.”
“Shooter is a highly accurate ballistics calculator with a clean, intuitive and polished user interface that places itself far ahead of the competition. Shooter has been used repeatedly to put shooters in top positions at shooting competitions and by police snipers across the globe.
Most recently, Robert Brantley won the 2018 King of 2 Mile match using Shooter. Here is what Robert had to say about Shooter:
“I have used Shooter for many years and it has always worked well. I use it not only to get solutions but to compare different load or component ideas. It’s a simple yet accurate solver. I recommend it to all shooters getting into LR shooting as it will help you learn the things you need to know for accurate solutions but has advanced features if they are needed as you grow. I use it mostly for PRS/hunting situations but have had great success with it at extreme long ranges as well. It’s a great resource to have on and off the range and is simple to use on the clock. If it didn’t work I wouldn’t rely on it much less have it on 4 devices. I have quite a few high end solvers and devices and Shooter has alway worked just as well. Looking back this is really all I need. I used Shooter almost exclusively at the King of 2 Mile match and it was dead on. I love this product and rely on it heavily.”
