CAUTION: When using Leica’s ballistic program, the CRF2800.COM provides either hold over value in inches, centimeters or come-ups in MOA or MILs to 1,000 yards, or equivalent horizontal range (EHR) to 1,200 yards/1,100 meters this limitation could be a deal breaker for some, using the connection to the Kestrel you can get around this issue however.
With the Leica Hunting app, developed especially for the CRF 2800.COM, individual ballistics settings can be configured conveniently on the smartphone. The app makes it possible to select the appropriate calibration for the gun. Leica’s own ABC ballistics program calculates the individual ballistic output values based on caliber, bullet type, trajectory and weight. This data is transmitted via Bluetooth to the CRF 2800.COM, which calculates the exact ballistic distance and holdover correction, adjusting for temperature, air pressure and angle. Within mere fractions of a second, either the linear, equivalent horizontal range (EHR), the holdover, or the number of clicks are calculated and displayed on the riflescope.
Wind direction and speed can also be taken into account in the calculation.
The “Kestrel Elite” weather meter is connected directly to the rangefinder via Bluetooth, and the corresponding correction values are sent to the Rangemaster. This combination guarantees absolutely precise measurement results – thanks to Applied Ballistics software and adjustments based on the current weather.
