Military & Law Enforcement Training & Operations

Kestrel meters have long been the standard for military and law enforcement tactical operations. Drop-tested, IP67 waterproof, dust-proof and nearly indestructible, the Kestrel can stand up to the harsh conditions of any demanding mission. As a comprehensive environmental meter -- get reliable, real-time data for every weather parameter that affects ballistics performance. Data logging capabilities allow for easy record-keeping of performance over time - ideal for training and tracking improvement. The Kestrel 5700 Elite also has extreme long-range features such as drop scale factor calibration and access to the Applied Ballistics custom drag model library to give you proven accurate firing solutions out to one mile and beyond.

Comparing a Kestrel Ballistics meter to the ballistic computers that came before is like stepping out of the stone age into the 21st century. For such a small computer-based item, my meters have endured some of the worst imaginable conditions riding in my backpack or on my body armor and just keep ticking.-Anonymous, US Military

Competitive Shooting & PRS

Stop thinking about the variables and start enjoying that satisfying sound of "clink". In PRS matches, conditions can vary throughout the day and even at different positions.

The Kestrel 5700 Elite gives you the critical environmental parameters along with accurate firing solutions needed to make winning shots – all in one rugged unit. Offering firing solutions for multiple targets, easy-to-view screens, and the ability to save dozens of gun profiles, you can customize and view the pertinent information you need to perform your best. With custom drag models, an expanded bullet library, and the range card feature, you can expect success in not only standard competitions, but also in extreme long range situations.

The Kestrel 5700 removes the hassle of the unknown in long range shooting. Loaded with helpful features such as muzzle velocity calibration, target range estimation, and the ability to store several gun profiles, you're ready to perform with first-round hits through the full subsonic range of the bullet.

With the Kestrel LiNK Communications, you can easily connect wirelessly to compatible range finders and conveniently manage and back up gun profiles on the free LiNK Ballistics app.

The Kestrel with Applied Ballistics feeds real-time environmental data to a ballistic solver and spits out the numbers you need for wind and elevation. It yields real data that will improve your hit percentage on target. This is an essential part of my kit now and I can't imagine going back.-Jeremy Kisner, Precision Rifle Shooter

Recreational Shooting

Target shooting might be a fun pastime, but you’re serious when it comes to the skill and challenge involved in making that long range shot. You need to know exactly what your bullet will do beyond a couple of hundred yards in order to get on target without burning through dozens of boxes of ammo. From recreational to bench rest to big game hunting, you also know that crosswind, air pressure, temperature and humidity all affect the ballistic coefficient and wind drift of your shot. Shooting long distance is hard enough. Using a Kestrel Ballistics Weather Meter with the full power of complete environmental monitoring + an advanced ballistics solver is the first step to increasing your accuracy down range while saving you time and ammo.

Kestrel Weather Ballistics Meters measure every environmental factor that impacts the accuracy of your shot. With its integrated digital compass and patented impeller, the Kestrel measures wind speed and direction, and calculates crosswind and headwind with respect to the target. Plus it measures barometric pressure, density altitude, temperature and relative humidity along with data logging capabilities for analyzing performance under different range or hunt conditions.

With the Kestrel Ballistics Meter, you can get by in the field with just two compact electronic tools, the meter and a laser rangefinder. What I like best is there is no need to enter any data except for the range. All the relevant data for the rifle, cartridge, and sighting system are entered and stored beforehand as a rifle profile.-Guns Magazine
