Who:Presenters: Ballistician Bryan Litz will be the primary speaker presenting material from: his books, the Applied Ballistics Lab, and experience shooting in various disciplines. The goal is to have an educational discussion on topics related to external ballistics. The seminar will be structured, but a great deal of time is allotted for questions and discussion. By the end of the seminar, everyone should be very comfortable with their understanding of how to apply ballistics in the real world to hit long range targets.
Other industry speakers are being invited to present on various topics related to ballistics and long range shooting. Below is the current list of committed guest speakers. Check back with this page for updates as additional speakers come on board.

Guest Speakers:

Nick Vitalbo – Owner of nVisti Tactical Innovations and Principle engineer for Applied Ballistics. Nick will be presenting on the state of the art in laser technology as it applied to rangefinders and wind reading devices.

Eric Stecker - Master Bulletsmith and President of Berger Bullets. Eric will be presenting on precision bullet making technology.

What:Two day seminar covering practical elements of External Ballistics. Information is presented in a general way which applies equally to all long range shooting disciplines (hunting, competition, tactical, etc.). Topics include:
Trajectory Basics – zeroing, point blank range, danger space, incline shooting…
Wind – Mechanism of wind deflection, reading the wind, wind shooting strategies, wind sensing equipment…
Secondary effects – Spin drift, Coriolis, aerodynamic jump…
Bullet drag modeling/Ballistic Coefficient – Definitions, testing, use…
Bullet stability – Basic gyroscopic stability, transonic stability, limit cycle yaw…
Ballistic solvers – How they work, best practices, demos…
Weapon Employment Zone (WEZ) analysis – How to determine and improve hit percentage.
State of the art in optics and laser technology
Subjects are introduced from an academic first principles perspective. Once the scientific basis for the material is established, the ideas are further demonstrated with examples from instrumented live fire. We explain the science, and then present examples of the principles in action. The goal is that you’ll leave with an understanding of the subject matter, as well as a knowledge of how to apply it in the real world.

Each day we’ll have:
A 4-hour morning block (with breaks)
1 hour lunch break on site
A 4-hour afternoon block (with breaks)
1 1/2 hour dinner break
Side-bar discussions organized by discipline and subject matter
