Boothwyn, PA - February 24, 2020


Kestrel Ballistics rolls out the highly anticipated gun-mounted display that allows long-range shooters to easily access live eye-level targeting data without moving position or taking eyes off the target.

Kestrel Ballistics, the leading brand in rugged US-built weather meters and long-range shooting accessories, announces the release of the Kestrel HUD Heads Up Display ($399). This sturdy, clear, gun-mounted display puts accurate firing solutions and critical target data right in your line of sight for the ability to effectively hit multiple targets faster than ever before.

The Kestrel HUD Heads Up Display significantly increases your ability to more quickly hit multiple targets at various distances with maximum speed and precision. For fast-paced situations involving multiple targets at varying ranges, you need reliable, up-to-the-minute data to make accurate first-shot hits. The HUD wirelessly connects to Kestrel 5700 Ballistics Weather Meters with LiNK® Bluetooth® technology acting as an eye-level repeater screen to display real-time shooting solutions right in line of sight. That means you can easily access DOPE and targeting data while on the clock or under pressure without coming off the gun - making your transition from one target to the next easier, faster, and more efficient.

The HUD is built to stand up to the toughest field conditions you may encounter while shooting or hunting; wind, rain, mud, freezing or scorching temperatures won’t affect its performance. Waterproof, drop-tested, recoil-tested and backed by a 5-year warranty, the HUD is ideal for long-range precision, tactical, target shooting, and hunting needs. The HUD is lightweight but sturdy enough to stay firmly mounted in place while shooting or moving to a new position.
