Description

Hit long range shots with realistic ballistics and varying conditions. This simulator is not a game. This app helps rifle shooters understand and practice the use of the mil-dot scope, and visualize how different conditions such as wind, temperature, and ballistic coefficients affect bullet performance. It also illustrates some of the challenges faced by long range shooters. This is a very accessible app that provides practice at home or on the go for shooters of all skill levels. Two scopes are available at this time. A first focal plane, and a second focal plane. The first's reticle scales to each magnification setting; the second scales to the maximum zoom, like the real thing. This is the inch/imperial version. For the metric version, please check my other apps. Features: • Fully functional mil-dot scope. Practice ranging and adjusting for windage, elevation, and holdovers. More reticles coming. • Realistic ballistics. The app's engine includes a real 3DOF calculator for authenticity and accessibility. You can also use your favorite ballistic calculator like JBM or tools like Mildot Master. • Use your own ammo. Use data from your favorite ammunition or custom loads from .22LR to .50 BMG. • Set your own conditions. Use it as a ballistic diorama and try shooting at different temperatures, wind conditions, altitudes, and more. You can see how these conditions affect your shot and create challenges. Range goes up to 1200 yards. • Use your own target pictures or download them off the internet. Load them from your camera roll. Moving targets are available on iPad. • Randomizer. Try your skills at randomly generated conditions. How many hits with your first shot can you get in a row? • Assists. They will help you calculate and remember the ranging formulas, in case you don't have a calculator or pen/paper handy. More features and scopes coming soon. There are many great resources on the internet that explain how to use mil dot scopes. You can practice them here without using live ammo. Try using the randomize function to get more varied practice, or play around with different settings to see how they affect shooting.

  • Good start, but...

    This is a good start, but it would be near perfect if it would store your settings rather than defaulting to a .308 blah blah blah every time. A .308 is popular, but there are many that shoot other calibers also. Please fix this!! As a programmer I know it’s an easy fix. Other than that it’s good start and pretty accurate when used with my ballistics software app for exact mil adjustments.
  • Good practice reading mil dots

    This app is really accurate I do long range shooting and I'll put my actual dope from 200 - 1100 yards that I use and it hits almost dead on. If your just getting into long rang this is a fun app to mess around with. The things I would change on it is that you can have multiple targets and on the dope card is that it would show your dope in mils not just inches.

    This app is broken on the iPhone 7. I have attempted to contact their support several times but they don't get back with me. It's not worth the money.
  • Not bad

    App is pretty much spot on if you know your windage and elevation. Bullet weight don't matter, 40-1000 grain .224 acts the same. Would be great to store loads instead of defaulting back to the 308 everytime you open the app.
