Jan 2022: Release of app update.

Feb 2021: Added Utilities to calculate Stability Factor, Spin Drift, Coriolis and Eotvos effects, and speed of sound. 

FALCON BALLISTICS is a Canadian developer of ballistics software, located in Calgary.  The software is designed for hunters and shooting enthusiasts who want a simple and accurate APP that accounts for all the normal variables encountered during long-range shooting: bullets, atmospheric, and scope and rifle.

 

Kelly Edwards, President

Kelly is a retired professional engineer, hunter, and outdoors guy, having spent over 35 years in the petroleum industry.   He earned a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Calgary in 1981.

 

Kelly began researching ballistics while reloading during a hiatus in his career during the industry downturn of 2016.   In his ballistics research and subsequent modelling efforts he maintained three key goals:

 

 

  1. To use data from a bullet as similar to common hunting and target bullets as possible, both in shape and weight.  He chose the data from Thompson as the basis for drag data.
  2. To develop a method truly based on bullet shapes, applied across all calibres, weights, and diameters.  This methodology proved quite successful.  Shape is certainly the most influential factor, although there are other secondary factors that also come into play.   The main bullet shapes used in the APP are demonstrated on the Our APP page.
  3. Build an app that was simple to use and intuitive.
