Mobile Device Ballistics Calculators For Your AR-15

Many things have contributed to the popularity of the AR-15 rifle platform. The weapon's modularity, value, and prevalence of aftermarket parts to allow you to customize the rifle to your own specific applications are all benefits that the AR-15 provides.  The AR-15 is also a very accurate weapon platform, especially for a semi-automatic type of rifle.  Installing a magnified optical sight on your weapon will enhance the accuracy of the rifle and that of the individual using it, and there are a couple of different mobile device applications that can help you get the most accuracy out of your AR-15/scope combination.  We will use this blog post to highlight a few of them, and provide links at the end of the post for you to check them out.

Strelok Pro Reticle Screenshot

The Strelok application is available for iphone and Android devices.  There is a free and a paid version (Strelok Pro).  Both versions are free of advertisements, and the free version is actually incredibly good and useful.  The paid version of the app has a much greater selection of reticles in its menu, and offers a very high degree of customizable data (imperial/metric measurements, MOA/MRAD/inches/clicks, weather conditions, target type/size, ammunition variables) to ensure your bullets are on target.  It is also very user friendly; you can become quite familiar with how the app works and what it can do within a few minutes of installation.  Be it the free or paid version, this app is pretty amazing.

Nikon SpotOn
If you have a Nikon scope, the Nikon SpotOn application is a very good app for getting the most accuracy out of your rifle and optic.  It is also available for iphone and android mobile devices.  The online device is free, but the mobile apps are paid (though comparatively inexpensive). The app has a very user friendly interface; you don't have to be an honor graduate from a military sniper school to use it and receive the benefits it provides. While it does allow you to choose from a large menu of ammunition variables and atmospheric conditions data, the app is limited to Nikon optics and their reticles...if that is your brand of scope, it may be the app for you.

There are a few other apps I have used that are worth checking out.  Lapua and Norma have free mobile device ballistic calculator apps, but both are limited to their product lines in terms of ammunition.  If you use Lapua or Norma ammo, or ammunition with bullet designs and loads comparable to theirs, these free apps may be of use.  MIL Sistemika has a free and Pro (paid) version of their Sniper Calculator app for Android devices; the free version has a fair amount of customizable data, and the paid version has about the same features as the Strelok paid version described earlier in this post.  I have found the Strelok app a bit easier to use/navigate, and it has a significantly larger reticle selection.  You can find out more information about all the mobile device ballistic calculator apps mentioned by clicking on the links below.
