A Comprehensive Ballistic Calculator for Your Long-Range Setup
The Kestrel 5700. This sort of replaced the Sportsman as now a more affordable option.
So what's the difference in the 5700 and the Elite Model? The Elite has the proprietary Applied Ballistics software. The 5700 has ballistics software, but it's not Applied Ballistics. If you want the best, get the Elite. If are watching your money more in the expensive sport, here is what you need to know on the difference.
Employs a G1/G7 ballistic solver, correcting for Aerodynamic Jump, Spin Drift and Coriolis to achieve accurate long-range shots. Easy Mode walks you through a simple step-by-step guide to using your Kestrel so you can learn faster and start shooting long range with confidence. Muzzle Velocity Calibration Guide allows for accurate measurement of bullet speed without a chronograph to improve accuracy. Environmental Capture measures and adjusts for actual conditions wherever you are and automatically updates the ballistic solution - eliminating the need to re-zero when moving to a different altitude.
LiNK connectivity powered by Bluetooth® low energy provides wireless communication to mobile devices and computers and integration with LiNK compatible laser range finders for improved speed and accuracy. Weather mode offers all the environmental measurements, storage and charting capabilities of the Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter, including wind speed, direction, crosswind, temperature, humidity, pressure and altitude. Large, hi-res, hi-contrast, graphic display is perfectly readable in the brightest sunlight. Includes both bright white and night-vision-preserving red backlight. It's really easy to read. Kestrel LiNK for Ballistics app on iOS and Android provides convenient gun management / backup, and the ability to view your Kestrel’s solution remotely on your mobile device. Rugged (drop tested to MIL-STD-810G standards), waterproof (sealed to IP67 standards). Includes a Protective pouch, neck lanyard and Lithium AA battery.
This unit can later be upgraded to the Elite version through Kestrel.
