A Whole Lot of Ballistic Computing Power - in the Palm of Your Hand
Kestrel’s 5700 Elite Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics software is an upgrade of Kestrel’s path-breaking but now-discontinued 4500 meter optimized specifically for the needs of long-range target shooters. The 5700 Elite measures up to 15 environmental parameters and lets you select either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients (BC) when calculating bullet trajectory. It fits in the palm of your hand, yet offers the “Litz” (as in, noted ballistician Bryan Litz) measured BC library of over 225 bullets - the most extensive source of measured data for modern small arms bullets.
Using its ballistics calibration feature, you can "train" your Kestrel 5700 Elite weather meter’s Applied Ballistics software to match a specific rifle based on observed long-range impacts. The result is an even more accurate set data points you can rely on in future calculations. With such easy access to highly accurate BC data, you’ve got everything you need to make a pin-point precise trajectory calculation - in a hand-held wind meter. More of the Kestrel 5700 Elite’s many features:
- Bluetooth LiNK to your Android or iOS smartphone
- Easy-to-use, intuitive user-interface screen navigation
- Improved screen resolution over earlier models - easier to see in varying light
- Screen switchable between white & red (NV - night vision) backlight
- Runs on one (1) AA battery
- Sealed battery compartment, so a battery leak will not fry your Kestrel’s motherboard
- Multiple languages: English, French, German & Spanish
- Reinforced molded hard polymer shell & scratch/breakage-resistant viewing window
Wait - it gets better! The Kestrel 5700 Elite Weather Meter comes with integrated Bluetooth technology, so both your real-time environmental and logged data can be transferred wirelessly and automatically to your smartphone, Mac, or PC. Yes, it’s Android AND iPhone compatible, so whatever phone OS has your allegiance, the 5700 is ready to play nice with it. It will also connect via LiNK to a Bushnell CONX Rangefinder, enabling you to view results from the AB Kestrel right on your rangefinder.
If you want to squeeze every last drop of performance from your rifle and your ammo, make sure you have a Kestel 5700 Elite with Applied Ballistics software with you the next time you hit the range.
