Kestrel 4500NV Pocket Weather Meter and Wind Vane
This is a used but like new Kestrel 4500NV non bluetooth model and includes the wind vane. This unit is here on consignment but we know the owner and will guarantee your satisfaction or your money back. 4500NV includes factory box, carry bag, and instructions and the wind vane includes instructions and canvas carry case.
The Kestrel applied ballistics meter combines sophisticated environmental sensing features with long-range shooting ballistics information in one hand-held device. The built in Applied Ballistics software provides all of the following:
The accurate and trusted ‘Litz’ library of G1 and G7 referenced Ballistic Coefficients (BC’s).
Custom drag curve modeling; helpful in engaging targets beyond the supersonic range of the bullet.
Ballistic Calibration (truing) feature allows you to ‘train’ the solver based on actual bullet impact.
PC Loader software; build firearm profiles on your computer and transfer them via wire or Bluetooth
The Kestrel Shooter's Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics Technology measures up to 15 environmental parameters and allows users to select from either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficients (BC) when calculating a trajectory at the range. The handy, portable meter also offers the “Litz” measured BC library of over 225 bullets, which is considered to be the most extensive source of measured data for modern small arms bullets. Users can also train the Kestrel Shooters Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics software to match a specific rifle based on observed impacts at long range with the ballistics calibration feature, which offers even more accurate data points for users to rely on. With easy access to more accurate BC data, shooters have everything they need to make a much more precise trajectory calculation in a compact and durable Kestrel meter design.
Kestrel 4500NV Applied Ballistics Meter Features
Calculate accurate fire control solutions for long range rifle shooting.
Select either G1 or G7 ballistic coefficient when calculating a trajectory.
Get ballistic coefficient data for more than 225 long range bullets.
Load up to 16 guns, 1 bullet each. In the case where you have multiple ammo types for a given rifle, you need to enter a whole new gun for each ammo type.
The AB Kestrel comes with numerous pre-loaded drag models, but not entire gun/ammo profiles. In other words you have to build your gun profile, but you can choose from the list of bullets when modeling your ammo.
Measure up to 15 environmental parameters at your fingertips.
"Train" the software to match your specific rifle based on observed impacts at long range
Calculates and adjusts for gyroscopic spin drift and Coriolis effect
Adjust for angle
Wind speed/air velocity
Heat stress index
Wet bulb temp
The Kestrel Portable Rotating Vane Mount is an ingeniously simple accessory designed for extreme light weight and portability. The Vane Mount assembles in seconds and the precision pivot and lightweight vane extension allows the unit to spin freely in the slightest of breezes. The incorporated level ensures that the Vane Mount is installed correctly and that direction readings will be accurate.
The Vane Mount is compatible with all Kestrel models. And paired with the Kestrel's 2000 data-point memory log, extensive data can be collected including wind speed and direction.
Together, the Kestrel 4500 and Vane Mount weigh less than 8 ounces (227 g.) and pack into a compact 2 x 6 inch (5 x 15-1/4 cm) case, which protects the Vane Mount pieces and Kestrel Meter. The Vane Mount can be affixed to any tripod for a complete weather station you can easily pack into remote locations.
