Using the LRBC provides ultimate ballistics knowledge, which in turn results in unparalleled shooting confidence. Essentially, it’s the equivalent of hosing yourself down with AXE body spray and walking into a frat party at 12 a.m. Chances are, you’re going to hit your mark. I should know. I use the LRBC and I was at that party.
2. Rifle Selection
How the heck is a ballistic calculator going to help me pick my rifle? Well, I’ll tell you. Instead of just walking to the gun counter and asking for a rifle based on the opinions of myriad people who are no longer with us, use the LRBC to do some pre-purchase ballistics research. The results may not only astound you, but drive your rifle selection in an entirely different direction. Even if you’ve narrowed your cartridge candidates down to a select few, the LRBC will assist in deciphering which will be the most effective for your intended applications.
3. You Owe it to Yourself and the Animal
Our lives are often strongly dictated by two very important, but increasingly finite factors – Time and Money. Whether heading out as a weekend warrior, or on a hunt years in the works, getting the most out of your experience is paramount. Using the LRBC to gather accurate load data just might make the difference between a hit, a miss, or a crippled animal. Now I’m not saying the success of any trip is defined by the presence of hooves and horns in the back of your pickup, but I’m not going to say it doesn’t make the experience a whole lot sweeter either.
