All in One Ballistics and Reloading Software.
Calculating your ammunition's ballistics performance at all ranges is key to making successful shots on targets and in the field. Using Ballistic Basics allows you to both analyze and understand a wide variety of ballistics information. Ballistic Basics helps you to improve your accuracy and performance by designing the optimal load for your gun and by letting you visualize how different ammunition component combinations can affect your ability to hit a target... so no more relying on traditional ballistics tables.

    Momentum at Range
    Expressed in units of "pound-seconds," momentum is a quantity of motion. Momentum is obtained by multiplying a bullets mass times its velocity. In many instances, momentum may be a better indicator of a bullet's potential than kinetic energy.
    TKO at Range
    A formulaic mathematical approach for evaluating the stopping power of hunting cartridges. The term "KO" is an acronym for "Knock Out." The Taylor KO Factor (TKOF) is a derived figure that allows hunters to compare bullets with respect to stopping power. The TKOF was developed by John "Pondoro" Taylor, a famous mid-20th century hunter and poacher of African big game.
    OGW at Range A formula developed by Edward A. Matunas to aid the hunter in selecting a cartride/load appropriate to the game being hunted. We've all heard the arguments regarding kinetic energy versus momentum. Many authors have attempted to come up with an objective method of determining the "Killing power" of cartridge loadings. This is one that actually makes sense. It differentiates light bullet energies and heavy bullet energies with a degree of rationale. It produces numbers that most experienced hunters will find intuitively correct, expressed in a form that is convenient for the hunter, optimum game weigt in pounds. The weight calculated assumes that occassionally you will take a hard quartering shot. If you push the envelope, the author suggests that you choose a load that will deliver a 25% heavier rating. This alsobassumes that the bullet chosen is constructed appropriately for the game being hunted.
