    Litz Tests Android OS Ballistics App at Ultra-Long Ranges

    An interesting article - shooting at 2400yds.

    http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/...a-long-ranges/

    I have been struggling all week to hit a target at a tenth of this distance.

    Note the estimated / real amount of scope elevation adjustment required - 103-MOA! You're into some fancy and expensive mounts that have adjustment facilities to get there.

    Bryan L's 2nd edition of Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting has an interesting new chapter on extreme ranges, ie beyond 1,400yd and extending up to and even beyond 2,000yd. The ideal bullet shape for normal ranges, up to around 1,400yd, which is very long and streamlined as per many modern target and long-range hunting bullets becomes dynamically unstable at extreme ranges. As this is a dynamic not gyroscopic stability issue, spinning the bullet faster via a 'tighter' rifling twist doesn't help. Shorter bullets are needed even if they have lower BCs. This is of course what the military have been using for decades with long-range ammo in machine-guns with bullets like Lapua's famous D-series that go back to the 1920s.

    I have that on my phone, it is pretty good!

    I might be missing something though, I cannot see a way to edit bullet info after having entered a new round into the database.
