Announcing: Something New From BallisticXLR….
We’re launching something new and exceedingly powerful. A product the likes of which no long range precision rifleman has ever had at their disposal because we’ve never made something this badass before. This is a tool so otherworldly powerful that until now only governments and large multi-national corporations had the wherewithal to fund creating such a thing. Now, we’re about to release it to the masses. The most dangerous piece of work to be created since Wikileaks was launched. Do you like arguing on gun forums about minutae? Do you love researching your next cartridge recipe more than you like your kids? Are you a hard core dork like me and you just love numbers and math? Are you a data geek? Are you an accountant or statistician at heart and you just have to calculate a coefficient of variation because you’ve already calculated the standard deviation and you don’t want that data to go to waste? Man! Do I have something for you.
There’s so much in the new BallisticDLR spreadsheet that it would be impossible to list it all. In fact, I’m probably never going to list it all but we will have videos launching soon going in to excruciating detail on how to use and get the most out of this new and unique in the world tool.
This new version is meant to be used as not only a source of primary ballistics data but as an analytical tool for you to evaluate potential choices and analyze the effects they’ll have on your shooting before you spend the money on those choices. We spent literally years perfecting this latest addition to the BallisticXLR family of products, most of that work donated by a single person working in their own time. What has been created is the single most epic analytical engine for long range shooters ever created. If you like automation and whizbang cool features this is the version for you.
Don’t get it twisted though. This is not a replacement for BallisticXLR or BallisticPRS. It is its own thing:
- BallisticXLR is meant for use in the field and is properly meant for people with lightly to moderately varying conditions in which they shoot and where speed isn’t the singular overriding consideration but precision is. This version is specificially engineered to print out nicely on 8.5×11″ US Letter pages or A4 pages or half-sheets with a little bit of manual work.
- BallisticPRS is at home where speed is absolutely paramount and for those shooters who’s area of operations could literally be anywhere in any conditions. This version is specifically designed to be able to be used for US Letter or A4 size full sheet pages or 2.75″ x 4.75″ arm-board carrier cards or half-sheets with a very little bit of manual work.
- BallisticDLR is an all encompassing analytical engine and ballistics package in one. It’s most powerful features allow direct comparisons between multiple gun/load combinations and deeply enlightening statistical analysis of past performance and future results. While not optimized for single or multi-page printing with perfected pagination it will print on A4 size or US Letter though margins and other settings may need to be adjusted. BallisticDLR is the first and only BallisticXLR product that is meant specifically to be used primarily on a computer rather than to use to print something that doesn’t require any electricity. Owners of BallisticDLR should probably own a copy of BallisticXLR or BallisticPRS as well.
Ready for some pictures? I am. Play that sad sad song you like while you look upon the place where I grow my ballistics, lay thine eyes upon the glory of the numbers and know in your soul that you are in possession of the ultimate power: The power of knowledge.

The launch is a few days off yet. We’re setting up some last minute details to make this easy on you and us. Pricing will be similar to existing products and support pricing will also be similar but there will be no Gold level support because most of the support staff for this new product are in Europe but the users are mostly bound to be USA based.
In a continuation of our re-launch from the close call earlier this year, we’re launching our new logo. This new logo will begin adorning the website and all new versions of BallisticXLR, BallisticPRS, BallisticRexLR and our latest product being announced separately. Big thanks to my ever present partner in crime Wouter for crafting this killer logo.
Remember: Don’t run. You’ll only die tired.
Fresh from the creative mind of Meccastreisand, we have iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phone cases with ballistics data printed right on them. The BallisticXLR A-FEDS (Auxiliary – Field Expedient Data Set). It’s not just some cheesy inkjet print job or a junk sticker that’ll come right off. These products use Thermal Dye Sublimation to transfer the image to the item which means that the image is inextricably PART of the item.
High temperatures and high pressures are used to literally fuse the dye into the substrate. You’d have to destroy the item to damage the data. We have cell phone cases, water bottles and travel mugs already worked up and tested. Those are properly field grade.
Next up we’ll be bringing out T-Shirts, ball caps, sweaters, mouse pads and whatever else someone might want. T-Shirts will have the DOPE printed upside down on the front so you can simply look down to your chest for your ballistics data, even with complex firing solutions in play.
Ball caps are right on the heels of the T-Shirts. Ball caps will contain a quick data sheet. These are meant for use by your spotter. The spotter gets a range and vector to the target and usually has to look in a book. Why not just look at the shooters hat. Shooters usually turn ball caps around so they don’t get swatted by the scope on recoil. Well, that’s a perfect place for your spotter to read your DOPE from and they can do it from their peripheral vision.
Other accessories are in initial test production now. We’ve got mouse pads with reticle subtends on the way. Sweaters and hoodies with ballistics data are coming in the next few days.
