If accuracy is the goal then it is necessary to have all the data. Crosswind is a fundamental influences at long range. Even medium crosswind velocities (~5 m/sec) along the flight path of a bullet can cause 1 metre deviations at 500 metres. Temperature, humidity, density and altitude also play a part in ballistics performance.
A Kestrel Hand Held Weather Meter offers real time, min, max and average readings for all these parameters. With the Night Vision (NV) range developed specifically for the military, one of these instruments would make a great Christmas gift for any serious shooter.
The NV range starts with the Kestrel 2500, with wind speed, temperature and pressure measurements. The top of the range model is the Kestrel 4500 with Horus Vision, which combines all critical environmental data including crosswind and wind direction with an integrated targeting software solution using Horus ATrag advanced proprietary algorithms. Compatible with other ballistics packages data can be wirelessly transferred via Bluetooth to a PDA.
