Varmint Hunting

You’re up for the challenge, don’t let distance take you down.

You might be an experienced shooter, but distance brings about a set of challenges that can throw you off your game. Wind, elevation and bullet drop can very easily turn a hit into a miss at long-range – especially on quick-moving critters.

Kestrel Ballistics Meters account for all onsite hunting conditions and calculate precise firing solutions allowing the average hunter to accurately increase their effective shot range. No matter the rifle, ammo, or target distance – expect first shot confidence.
