New for Silhouette Ballistics Version 21
Single Range Shooting Solution Pop Up Screens

The new pop up screens are designed after the screens found in the mobile version Silhouette Ballistics for PDA’s. It’s intent is to provide the user an easier to read data format. The data is presented in larger type to make it easier to read in the field when using a laptop or notebook computer. Easy to use, just select any distance line on a trajectory table and have that line distance be present in the Single Range Shooting Solution pop up window. In the example below the cursor was placed on the 600 yard. Then from the Trajectory drop down menu the Single Range Shooting Solution… was selected.


There are three pop up screens available in the Single Range Shooting Solution option. The three screens are designed so you may have just the information needed for your shooting situation and making the computer screen as easy to read as possible. You are also able to switch back and forth from the three screens by just clicking on the option buttons. The three option buttons are titled Hunting, Target, and Tactical.


The hunting screen allows inputting any shooting angle. The elevation shown is adjusted for any shooting angle. The target screen allows for different wind speeds and wind direction to be easily changed. The wind drift result format may be easily changed using the options buttons.


The tactical screen also includes target leads for moving targets. Both left and right and up and down leads are presented. However, you must do the math combining the wind drift and target lead based on which way the wind is blowing and target in moving.


All of the single range shooting information has been part of the trajectory tables in version 17 and 19, except for the Over | Under Target Lead which is only on the new pop up screen.

Nice share anyrange!

On another note, I think one needs to develope a ready reckoner diary or pad (for different ranges, wind drift ... etc) for the field, may it be hunting or range. A PDA or iphone sort of think might be good, but a laptop will be cumbersome!

It is better to "wear it out", than to "rust it out"!
