Another way is after you’ve shot and spent the time at the range, go to the Winchester Ballistic App and enter in your bullet info. Then, if you like, print the ballistic information and tape it to your gun for a quick reference. It can also be very effective to check ballistics in a variety of weather conditions, and with whatever ammo/gun combination you may decide to use.

You can download the app right to your phone so it’s always accessible and available for both in the field and at the range.

The third way is to do it through your scope with a custom ballistic turret made specifically for you and your precise load by Swarovski. You simply give them all the information required (sight in distance, bullet info, etc.) and they will create a custom turret with every distance engraved in so you can dial it in right during the hunt.

It’s hard to complete with the knockdown power of a Winchester slug for anything from bear to whitetail. Now you can use that to your advantage without having to worry about drop while on your hunts.
