NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA., February 21, 2013 – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, the world’s leading manufacturer in high performance sports optics, is pleased to announce a completely new online ballistic calculator. Fully redesigned, the new system virtually eliminates the guesswork for hunters and sport shooting enthusiasts alike. The user-friendly, intuitive ZEISS Ballistic Calculator was developed by a team of the most experienced ballistics engineers and promises to help hunters and shooters of all levels to master the long range. It is programmed specifically to compliment the newly designed RAPID-Z, RZ-6 and RZ-8 ballistic reticles and is fully compatible with the latest Windows or Mac versions and the most popular web-browsers.
“With this newly updated ballistic system and the cutting edge technology of our ballistic reticles the user experience will be phenomenal“ stated Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “We are constantly striving to provide truly innovative technology that will compliment every skill set for our passionate customers.“
The new ZEISS Ballistic Calculator allows users to pick their exact ZEISS Riflescope with ballistic reticle from a drop-down menu. The user also has the ability to select factory or hand load data as well as environmental variables, and then the system will calculate and display the optimum magnification setting. The result is that distant yardages now coincide with the ZEISS ballistic reticle subtensions. The system allows the user to adjust standard settings for altitude, temperature, and incline angle as well as advanced settings for muzzle velocity, sight height above bore and sight-in distance. A new convenient print/save option for field reference is also available.
“The entire ballistic reticle marketplace is generally complex and confusing to most shooters.” stated Mike Jensen. “We have intentionally spent hundreds of man hours simplifying our system, making it more user friendly and self-explanatory. It’s the most accurate and simplistic system in the industry designed by hunters for hunters and we are proud that it works exclusively with our RAPID-Z and RZ reticles.”
