Ballistic Energy Calc

Ballistic Energy Calc


This app calculates the muzzle energy and Taylor KO factor for a projectile based on the mass, velocity, and diameter. Muzzle energy is computed using the firearm industry's standard formula. Momentum is calculated using the standard formula. Taylor KO factor is a comparative measure of the knock-down power of a projectile. The formula was developed by John Taylor, an African game hunter, to compare the effectiveness of hunting cartridges.

Great app!! This app is quick and easy to calculate ballistic energy. It is not deep in additional features which is what kept it from getting 5 stars

Spot on.

Simple and effective. I'd like to see the following added: Free recoil calculations given gun weight and powder charge; automatically clear the data entry field when tapped for new entry (instead of having to back up the cursor). Otherwise, its a great app.

Works well Minus one star for only accepting mass in whole numbers (limits airgun use).
