5.0 & 6.0
Silhoutte Ballistics 17
Mobile version has been used on Windows CE 4.0 after doing some
Microsoft updates and also been been reported to work on Windows CE 6.1
smartphones may have a Windows version that does not support Silhoutte
Ballistics 17 Mobile.
The mobile version of
Silhouette Ballistics, designed to compliment the desktop version of Silhouette
Ballistics. Calculate single shot scenarios in the field using Silhouette
Ballistics Mobile and use the desktop version designed to make your ballistics
tables, range cards, wind clocks, and graphs.
Both the desktop and mobile
version of Silhouette Ballistics uses the same Individual Gun Files.
There are three Sight Setting
output screens, one for hunting situations, one for target shooting, and
another that includes a moving target.
All of the critical data required
for exterior ballistics is editable. There are different screens to edit or enter
this data. Screen design minimizes scrolling for faster
data input and results.
Open and save gun data files just
like your letter files. Both the desktop and mobile versions of Silhouette
Ballistics use the same Individual Gun Files. Use the desktop version to make
range cards and wind clocks and take the same file to the field for exact
sight setting corrections at current environmental conditions.
The Sight Settings – Hunting
screen designed more for real hunting situations. Calculate actual
sight setting corrections for any distance from the guns zeroed distance.
Just select how you want it displayed, in Minutes of Angle (MOA), actual holdovers,
sight clicks, or my favorite actual Scope Knob Numbers. If shooting up
hill or down hill, no problem. Sight settings corrected for any up hill or down
hill angle. The sight setting screens for target shooting and tactical
situations will use the same shooting angle. The up or down hill shooting angle
will also be displayed.
The Sight Settings – Target screen
will aid the target shooter in making last minute sight corrections for wind
drift. Input any wind speed and wind direction to get the bullet’s wind
drift in Minutes of Angle (MOA), Inches, Feet & Inches, or
Also displayed is the sight elevation correction from the guns zeroed
distance. Just select Minutes of Angle (MOA), actual holdovers, sight clicks, or Scope
Knob Numbers for your elevation correction.
The third output screen includes
results for a moving target. Input crossing speed in ether Miles per hour
(MPH) or Kilometers per hour (KMH) and the direction in degrees and the
target lead is display. Select the lead in Minutes of angle, Inches, Feet &
Inches or Centimeters. The sight correction from the guns zeroed distance includes
any up hill or down hill shooting angles, entered on the Hunting screen.
Enter the range or target
distance and the type of measurement used on this screen. The target distance
maybe updated on each of the three Sight Setting Screens. This screen
is where you select MPH or KMH for wind and moving target speed.
Enter the gun information on this
screen. Minimal information requested here. Just enough to verify
the opened individual gun file. Enter scope height or sight line above the
bore line. Enter the distance used to zero the sights and the type of measurement
Enter the altitude above sea
level, barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity for the environmental
conditions when you zeroed your gun.
Enter the altitude above sea
level, barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity for the current
Enter the muzzle velocity and
bullet ballistic coefficient on this screen. Again, some other bullet powder
information is here to differentiate between loads using the same gun. The
mobile version just like the desktop version allows you to use multiple
ballistic coefficients. Select Multiple to edit or enter multiple ballistic
Enter multiple ballistic
coefficients if available. The format is the same that Sierra Bullets use. This is
where using files created on the desktop computer comes in handy.
There you have all this information.
Temperature affects all chemical
reactions. This includes powder primer performance. Silhouette
Ballistics adjusts the muzzle velocity for ambient temperature to suit your
load. The default value of 0.15 will make minor adjustments. Use .05 to .15
for temperature stable powders like Hodgdons Extreme powders. Use .15 to
.25 for extruded powders like IMR 4064. Use .25 to .35 for ball powders. The
High MV Factor adjusts the muzzle velocity for temperatures greater than the
temperature for the muzzle velocity. The Low MV Factor adjusts the muzzle
temperatures less than the temperature for the muzzle velocity. If you
do not know, just turn the correction function off. Use this screen to select inches
only or feet & inches for sight hold over corrections.
This screen is for service rifle
shooters to enter the clicks for the guns zeroed distance and the value of
each click. Enter the maximum numbers of clicks your sight has and if the
range or target distance requires more clicks than your sight has, the extra
needed elevation will be displayed as a hold over with the sights at the full
This screen is for scopes with
target knobs. Enter the scope tube and knob setting for the distance the guns
zero. Enter the maximum scope tube and knob setting for your scope.
If the range or target distance requires more adjustment than your sight has,
the extra needed elevation will be displayed as a hold over with the scope at
the full up position. The tube numbers refers to the numbers on the stem,
which the elevation knob rotates and indicates the number of
revolutions the elevation knob makes.
SB Mobile will also run on a
desktop computer if the desktop computer has Windows Installer 3.1 and
Microsoft .Net Framework Version 2.0 installed.
