Federal Premium has gone live with an online ballistics calculator for both Federal’s factory loads and your custom hand-loads. The calculator works for both rifle and handgun. If you make an account with Federal, the calculator can store all your custom loads. Federal explains its capabilities best:
The Ballistics Calculator lets shooters manipulate multiple variables such as temperature, elevation, wind speed, sight height and zero range. It displays results in inches, centimeters, MOA or Mils. Wind drift, vertical drop, velocity and energy can be calculated out to 2,000 yards.
I spent some time with it this evening and found the calculators spot-on accurate to the data from my own rifles. The muzzle velocity was slightly off, but the Federal Ballistics Calculator allows users to change their data.
If you have a mobile hotpot, you can access the calculator anywhere. The Ballistic Calculator worked well on my Android tablet using Chrome (Nexus 7, 2013), Windows 7 laptop (Chrome & FireFox), and Mac (Safari and FireFox).
I tried to get my wife to let me borrow her iPad, but its her baby not to be sullied by talk of guns. iPad users, what are your results?
