Applied Ballistics’ mission is to be a complete and unbiased source of external ballistics information for long range shooters. We’re highly active in R&D, constantly testing new claims, products and ideas for potential merit and dispensing with the marketing hype which can make it so difficult for shooters to master the challenging discipline of long range shooting. We believe in the scientific method and promote mastery thru understanding of the fundamentals. Our work is passed on to the shooting community in the form of instructional materials which are easy to understand, and products such as ballistic software which runs on many platforms. If you’re a long range shooter who’s eager to learn about the science of your craft, we’re here for you.


The Applied Ballistics Laboratory is continually researching new areas of internal, external and terminal ballistics. Typical Laboratory activities are scheduled in support of internal research efforts, however external consulting is also accepted. Applied Ballistics Laboratories supports Berger Bullets and select partners with regular ballistic testing services.
