Know where your bullet will hit before you pull the trigger. The Kestrel 5700 Ballistics Weather Meter measures wind, altitude and all critical weather and ballistic variables to calculate an accurate aim point for long-range shooting. No more DOPE cards, re-zeroing or guessing at the wind.
This lightweight compact tool combines onsite envirnonmental measurements with a powerful G1/G7 ballistics calculator to deliver precise elevation and windage solutions for any gun, any round, any shot. Get first-shot confidence with the all-in-one, long-range shooting solution trusted by top military, hunters, and competitive shooters.
Note this unit is not a rangefinder but is designed to take bluetooth input from rangefinders on the market, match the exact environmental conditions along with bullet / powder variables and deliver an accurate shooting solution.
There are several models ranging up to $2000 in cost. The Kestrel 5700 with applied ballistics is the model discussed here and is normally on Amazon in the $400 range. All of the Kestrel units can be found here. These units are what the pros use and the future of long range shooting. They make long range shooting a science.
The Kestrel 5 Series platform offers a large, high-resolution and contrast display with ease of font readability. It also includes a built-in dual color backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens, AA battery operation and optional LiNK iOS and Android wireless connectivity and app support.
Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel 5700 is drop-proof (tested to MIL-STD-810G standards), dust-proof, waterproof (sealed to IP67 standards) and able to withstand harsh environments without damage– so it can accompany you to the range or hunt for years to come.
A range of carry pouch options makes it even easier to take your Kestrel 5700 with you.
The Kestrel 5700 is a tremendous value in full-featured ballistics calculators. Providing the same trusted accuracy, reliability, and usability as the original Kestrel 5700 Elite Ballistics Weather Meter, this integrated weather meter and ballistics solver takes the guesswork out of long-range shooting and is an ideal companion for hunters and recreational shooters working to stretch their reach in long-range shooting.
G1/G7 ballistics solver, correcting for Aerodynamic Jump, Spin Drift and Coriolis to achieve accurate long-range shots.
Easy Mode guides shooters step-by-step in using the unit for a simplified learning curve and a more convenient getting-started experience.
Muzzle Velocity Calibration Guide allows for accurate measurement of bullet speed without a chronograph to improve accuracy.
Environmental Capture measures and adjusts for actual conditions wherever you are and automatically updates the ballistic solution - eliminating the need to re-zero when moving to a different altitude.
