By now you're saying to yourself, how's a sniper to keep track of all these things without a computer? Exactly.' That's what the long-range shooting specialists at CheyTac Associates realized, inspiring them to devise a special ballistics computer program for handheld PCs that takes into account all these meteorological factors, plus a dozen other considerations. Not only does their Advanced Ballistic Computer calculate the exact target knob settings to engage a target up to 2,500 yards away, it simultaneously keeps track of multiple ammo types for instandv switching the settings, say, from a SLAP round to a Raufoss Mk 211. Their programming has been tested against real-world results at the Department of Defense's Yuma Proving Grounds, using a Weibler high-speed radar. Because it is designed specifically for extremerange shooting, I don't know of any other software that so perfectly fits the needs of heavy rifle sniping. When used in tandem with its cutting-edge .408 CheyTac rifle, this system offers incredible potential.
