Kestrel 5700 Hornady 4DOF Ballistics Weather Meter
The Kestrel 5700 is a full-featured ballistics calculator. This integrated IP-67 waterproof weather meter and ballistics solver takes the guesswork out of long-range shooting. The Kestrel 5000 Series offers a large, high-resolution display for easy reading. It also includes a strong polycarbonate lens and LiNK iOS and Android wireless connectivity with app support. The 5700 is able to withstand harsh environments without damage.
Gun/bullet profiles can be built and downloaded before setting out. At the range or match, a tripod and optional Kestrel Vane Mount can be used to quickly adjust target range without leaving your shooting position.
The Kestrel 5700 can measure and log wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, heat index, pressure and altitude. Paired with the Vane Mount, the meter becomes a compact weather station.
The Hornady 4DOF Ballistic Calculator provides trajectory solutions based on projectile drag coefficient (not ballistic coefficient) along with the exact physical modeling of the projectile and its mass and aerodynamic properties. It also calculates the vertical shift a bullet experiences as it encounters a crosswind, referred to as aerodynamic jump. MSRP $499

Outdoor Edge RazorMax
The RazorMax allows a hunter to field-dress, skin, debone and process game with a single tool. This knife accepts both 3.5-inch drop-point replacement blades and 5-inch boning/fillet blades.
Included blades are heat-treated and hand-finished 420J2 stainless steel honed to a surgically sharpened edge. The 3.5-inch general-purpose drop-point blade is suitable for field-dressing and skinning. The 5-inch boning/fillet blade is designed for processing meat quickly and efficiently. Each blade locks securely into the RazorMax’s black-oxide coated blade holder. This provides the strength and rigidity of a traditional knife to the 3.5-inch blade while allowing ample flex for the 5-inch blade.
A thermoplastic rubber grip is molded for a positive nonslip grip. The RazorMax is available with either a black or blaze orange handle and comes complete with a lightweight nylon belt sheath that features a removable pouch for storing spare blades. MSRP $79.95
