Who uses a Kestrel?



Log in to see fewer ads
Some of the guys/girls that shoot matches with me use Kestrels for firing solutions at targets out to 350 yards. They seem to always have the right hold-over/wind calls for their shots. I need this!

If you have used Kestrels for this application, what Kestrel unit are you using? Have you had good results? What can you tell me to help?

Thanks!

I have a basic Kestrel i use for wind reads and temp at the local 1000 yard matches. My Son uses a fancier model with built in applied ballistics program which is a lot nicer.

He's getting really good with using it with the various guns. We used it at Thunder Valley last week and other than a slight windage tweak we were right on even at the mile target. Pretty amazing when a first round shot is within 12 inches to the right on a mile target with an 88gr Hornady out of a 223.

They don't take the place of paying attention to what Mother Nature tells you downrange but it is a very useful tool.
