KESTREL 5700 Elite Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics and LiNK
Kestrel Ballistics (booth #1946) Nielsen-Kellerman (NK), creators and manufacturers of KESTREL Ballistics Weather Meters, is featuring their KESTREL 5700 Elite Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics and LiNK, among many other innovative and sought-after products, integrations and strategic partnerships. The KESTREL ELITE takes the guesswork out of long-range shooting, even out to the transonic and subsonic flight range of your bullet.
This next-generation integrated weather metre and ballistics calculator provides shooters with up-to-the-minute accurate wind speed and air density measurements combined with the full functionality of the highly regarded Applied Ballistics solver engine and manufacturer-specific bullet flight model database. All this power is packed into a small four-ounce, rugged instrument that is easy to carry and use and proven through years of tough strategic use. LiNK enabled units can also be paired with LiNK compatible laser range finders, like the Safran Vectronix PLRF25C, which offers snipers/spotters, marksmen and forward observers one of the smallest and most powerful MIL-SPEC Laser Range Finders on the market today.
The ergonomic design of the Vectronix PLRF25C allows for one-handed use, with the one-button operation being intuitive and easy-to-learn. Ranging measurements up to 6,000m, as well as accurate angle measurements, are no problem for the compact (measuring only 131x88x55mm), and lightweight (430g) rangefinder. The PLRF25C features 6x magnification capability and is tactically proven in the most demanding environments.
The KESTREL ELITE is also offered as a package with the Bushnell ELITE 1 Mile CONX Laser Rangefinder. The two products work seamlessly together; with each target range data being transmitted to the paired KESTREL for instant calculation of an elevation hold. The data is then sent to the KESTREL and handed back to the rangefinder for display in the viewfinder. The Bushnell ELITE 1 Mile CONX is accurate against reflective targets up to 1,760 yards and sends both inclination angle and range data to the KESTREL ELITE for accurate high angle shots.
