G7 drag model needed! 1/5
Need to add g7 drag model for VLD type bullets!
Stunning design flaw(maybe) 1/5
I could be wrong, but I can’t change the color of the text. I would give the app a 6/5 if I could were it not for the fact that red on black characters make it virtually impossible to use in bright ambient light. It is my favorite functioning ballistic app by a long shot(npi), but it’s useless unless you do all your shooting in the worlds largest darkroom. I sent them an email, no reply. Red on black, really?... Red? On black? If I’m wrong and there is some way to change this idiotic red text to a different color please let me know, and I will gladly apologize and change my rating to 5 stars. I openly admit a sub 70 IQ when it comes to iPhone tech/apps et al, so I got that going for me as well.
Wrong reticle 1/5
Does not have the correct TMR3 reticle for Leupold Mark5 HD
Wow, this is a great app. Easy to use. Great info. Great features. Highly recommend. 5/5

Needs additional inputs 1/5
By Ruger Pro
I have Ballistic AE, Shooter and Strelok pro. Also use JBM for my trusted DOPE. This app has great visual and many preloaded reticles as compared to the rest. As many have said, definitely needs development for the watch. The G1 only is a no go for long distance and ELR. I purchased it and wont use it till it gets up to par with the rest. Hopefully my purchase will help the developer.
Needs Rifle profiles to add in twist rate and direction.
G7 drag functions would be nice.
As others have said, ability to calculate range card on phone then send to watch.
Kestrel compatibility would be great.
Check the ballistics against JBM, I couldn’t get them to come close.
Inaccurate scope reticle, email bounced 1/5
By Ky bowhinter
Nice idea, but the Redfield TAC-MOA reticle subtensions are incorrect. An email to the developer bounced.
Apple watch app is trash 1/5
The apple watch app is useless. All the inputs jump from units of 1 to 10 to 100 so it’s impossible to set the bullet weight or bc correctly making the entire calculation worthless. This thing should let you configure a load on your phone and sync it to the watch.

Is there a way to get the environmental tab conditions to update automatically based on the GPS?
For newbies or oldies 5/5
So relatively new to long distance shooting and don’t have a spotter. But once you know your zero at a specific range..(highly suggest 200) and you know the bullet you are going to use (never change btw) this app has allowed me to very accurately dial in my holds up to 450 yds with my JP 15 shooting 5.56..
Have to be within 2” of accuracy to the calculations... I believe it would be dead on if I had the exact correct velocity of my rounds, but just going with what the box says. Also the huge preloaded ammo selection is awesome.
Most expensive app purchase ever, and paid for itself in the ammo I’ve saved!
J. Scoggins 5/5
Great application for I-phone, all data pertinent and dedicated to accuracy.
Simple to use GPS is cool, lets you know what’s beyond your target in unfamiliar areas.
Love this app 5/5
I have paid for and downloaded four ballistic calculators and the SBC app is hands down the best one out there. Intuitive and easy to use, save your favorite reticles for quick access and the birds eye view of your surroundings is really cool and useful. Don’t waste your time and money on any other app.
No good for airguns. 2/5
As many other people mentioned you can’t change it away from (g1) so this app won’t work with airguns. I bought this because it’s the only ballistics app with a watch companion app but this app still needs a lot of work.
New Reticles! 5/5
By Randal Stevens568
I requested a reticle and in the very next update they had my scope! The ballistic calculator is amazing and the GPS function (while sometimes can be a bit buggy) is really helpful in determining wind direction and speed. 1000 yards is no small feat and this app makes it a lot easier.
A good start to a great potential 2/5
This app could be great but alas it’s missing the ability to share load data between devices and it would be great to get all the data organized in the phone and share it to the watch as well as being able to link the phone and the watch so you could gain duel access to the same info in real time with the phone and the watch.
The dogs are barking down here for more Apple Watch compatibles.
Thanks for being the fist to make it happen
Not Recommended 1/5
Don’t get me wrong. It is a beautiful app and well put together. But if it doesn’t have your specific reticle it’s useless. Purchased a few months ago, requested my scope reticle be added and have sent an email. Last update was over 3 months ago. Developer has not added reticle or ever contacted me back. Will not be recommending to my students. Look elsewhere for a ballistics calculator.
Great ballistic calculator 4/5
Very intuitive and works perfectly. The target selection map needs some work (Manual gps refresh and the ability to scroll and stay)
Good, but needs further work: 3/5
1: Can only use G1, not G7.
2: Max ambient temperature on Apple Watch version is 70 degrees.
3: Zero range on Apple Watch version limited to units of ten. Cannot set 25 yards.
4: No provision to enter projectile length.
Great Improvements Made 5/5
I was reluctant after reading the reviews to download this app, but after looking at the update history I decided to give it a try. It has worked flawlessly and is very easy to use, including with the Apple watch.
This app developer has worked incredibly hard to address all the negatives brought up in past reviews. Every update is something major that makes a huge improvement in functionality. A year ago I wouldn't have recommended it, but today I say buy it with complete confidence.
When ever you set the range and windage app is not showing how many clicks just has a line on clicks
Worst ballistic app 1/5
Compared to the other ballistic apps available for the SAME PRICE...this one is a no frills light weight hard to use and annoying at best Look elsewhere.
Program crashes 1/5
Ballistic table run crashes program after about 150yds. Program crashes during other functions. Limited scope support. Program has potential but it's not worth the aggravation.
Good App but has short comings 5/5
Needs more optics models with mil-dot MOA versions. Second short coming is with .303 BC it won't calculate the bullet trajectory. But if you can deal with that it's a great app.
Wait for a better implementation 1/5
Unfortunately this app is so limited it's not worth the price despite being Apple Watch compatible. The Ballistic engine is limited (G1 form factor only), one cannot create a library of projectiles, cannot create a "DOPE" sheet, have to input range for each calculation, cannot graphically view wind deflection or drop, cannot get drop in inches, there is no output in milliradians (only fraction of Mil click values). The list of limitations is too long to detail.
Bottom line, if you are a shooter looking for an Apple Watch Ballistic calculator, please don't spend money on this app and hope established iOS apps like Ballistic implement a useable Watch solution.
Mr Tomcat256 1/5
By Mr. Tomcat256
1 star for now allowing ballistic coefficient to be entered into data fields. How can you accurately calculate drop values without entering ballistic coefficient? You can't because this app gives incorrect data compared to other apps that I have used and tested and found to be accurate. I bought this app because of its Apple Watch compatibility but I wish I could get a refund. I emailed the app developer asking why he excluded ballistic coefficient values and received no response. I waited 48 hours after sending an email and then came here to write my review. I do not recommend this ballistic calculator.
By Honda 2-Wheeler
When I enter information, the information reverts back to whatever was there before I entered my information. Worthless to me.
Works perfectly...great support. I use it weekly with out a problem
Waist of money!!! 1/5
By Won't comply
The app don't work at all. This app is a compleat sham.
