There have been a handful of iPhone applications developed for tactical applications, including a shot counter SISiPhoneApps and long range shooting calculator from Knights Armament.
Well another one drifted across my desk this morning from what looks like is a lone-wolf app developer called the Mil-Dot Rangefinder.
Basically it looks to me like the app gives you a mirror image of your long-range scope and allows you to input variables to range and calculate your target based on what you're seeing.
Mil-Dot Rangefinder for the iPhone takes the math out of ranging targets using a mil-dot scope. Real-time calculations provide instant range measurements in both yards and meters. The simple interface allows for one handed operation and eliminates any need to manually type any measurements to range a target.I'm not a long-range shooter and haven't worked with military-grade scopes, but it looks to me like at least the so-called "Pro Edition" of the app has a bunch of features that any one-shot killer would be looking for:
- -Full featured ballistics calculator
- -Fast windspeed/direction adjustment.
- -Range card (ballistics chart)
- -Point of impact indicator
- -Bullet drop compensator
- -Realtime windage/elevation hold readings
- -Time to target
- -Remaining velocity
- -Remaining energy
- -Multiple Ballistic Profiles
- -Fast Unit Of Measure Switching
