Brantley Medals with Hornady 4DOF Solver at King of the Two Mile

Grand Island, NE. - Hornady® congratulates the performance of Team Hornady® shooter Robert Brantley, who didn’t shoot any sighters, and used the Hornady® 4DOF® solver for a clean second place finish at the King of the Two Mile in Raton, New Mexico June 29 - July 2, 2019.

Brantley utilized the Hornady® 4DOF® Ballistics Calculator for precise, long range shooting calculations. “I used Hornady 4DOF from 100 to 3,600 yards with no truing needed, all solutions were to the click!” said Brantley. “Gone are the days of needing to true your solver; from aerodynamic jump predictions, to wind and elevation, 4DOF® just flat out works!” Brantley added.

The Hornady® 4DOF® Ballistic Calculator provides trajectory solutions based on projectile Drag Coefficient, along with the exact physical modeling of the projectile and its mass and aerodynamic properties. Additionally, it calculates the vertical shift a bullet experiences as it encounters a crosswind; referred to as aerodynamic jump.

The Hornady® 4DOF® Ballistic Calculator is also available for download through Apple and Android app stores and allows users to calculate trajectories in areas without wireless connectivity.
