What should I set as my reference altitude if I am using my Kestrel for long range shooting?

For Applied Ballistics and HORUS, the ballistics calculator will ALWAYS use station pressure despite the altitude number that is entered.

  • If you want station pressure, set your reference altitude to ZERO.
  • If you want your altitude to display correctly and have station pressure, you will need to enter your current barometric pressure as the reference barometric pressure. The reference altitude should remain ZERO, and Sync Alt should be OFF.
