Kestrel LiNK Ballistics for iOS


The free Kestrel LiNK Ballistics app is the perfect companion to the Kestrel Sportsman and Kestrel Elite Weather Meters with Applied Ballistics. Build and manage your gun/bullet profiles and download them to your Kestrel Sportsman before you set out. At the range or match, secure your Kestrel Sportsman to a tripod using the optional Kestrel Vane Mount and use the LiNK Ballistics app to quickly adjust the target range and view the shooting solution and wind rose without leaving your shooting position. It’s like having a meteorologist and ballistician standing next to you while you shoot.
