Who: Primary Speaker Ballistician Bryan Litz will be presenting
material from: his books, the Applied Ballistics Lab, and experience shooting
in various disciplines. Guest Speakers: Nick Vitalbo, Doc
Beech, Alan Barnhart, and Mitchell Fitzpatrick, along with other industry speakers are being invited
to present on various topics related to ballistics and long-range
What: 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.
This is a 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.).
1. Trajectory Buildup – Baseline Trajectory,
Gravity Drop, Vacuum Trajectory, & Aerodynamic Drag
2. Trajectory Features – Zeroing, Point Blank
Range, Danger Space, & Uphill/Downhill Effects.
3. Sights – Tall Target Test (Sight Scale Factor
& Cant), Aperture Sights, Turrets vs Holding Reticles, & Extreme
Adjustment for ELR
4. Drag Modeling – What is a drag model, how is
drag measured, how is a drag model used, & standard drag models.
5. Ballistic Coefficients – What is a BC, G1 and
G7, Curve Fitting Challenges (averaged BCs, segmented BCs), & Estimating
6. Wind – Nature of wind, Mechanism of wind
deflection (velocity scaling, lag time, wind deflection), near wind vs far
wind, wind measurement, terrain and vertical wind, Wind strategies for
competition, Wind coaching.
7. Basic Stability – Gyroscopic Stability Factor,
Twist Rate Effects (muzzle velocity, precision, & BC)
8. Advanced Stability – Gyroscopic vs Dynamic
Stability, Limit Cycle Yaw, Twist rate and Stability Effects in Transonic
Flight, & Spin Decay
9. Secondary Effects – Spin Drift, Coriolis,
Aerodynamic Jump, Accounting for Secondary Effects in Ballistic Solvers
10. ELR Shooting – Transonic effects, Secondary
Effects, Critical Nature of (Ranging, MV Measurement, Drag Modeling, Wind),
Equipment Currently Being Used & Bullet Selection.
11. WEZ Analysis – What is WEZ, Confidence
Environments, Precision (Wind, Range, MV), Accuracy (Sights, Trajectory
Modeling, Secondary Effects, Calibration (Trueing)).
12. Ballistic Solvers – Components (Interface,
Solver/Simulation, Model), Potential Accuracy, & Walk through of use with
technical explanation of inputs.
13. Other Topics – Technology, Laser Range Finders,
Non-Linear Divergence, & Much More.
