CEDAR SPRINGS, MI – -(AmmoLand.com)- Applied Ballistics, LLC is proud to announce that it’s founder and owner Bryan Litz, will be receiving the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) 2019 Hathcock Award.

The Hathcock Award is presented to recognize an individual who, in the opinion of the Small Arms Committee Executive Board, has made significant contributions in operational employment and tactics of small arms weapons systems which have impacted the readiness and capabilities of the U.S. military or law enforcement. (NDIA)

Bryan’s contributions to the U.S. military include numerous publications to help snipers understand complex external ballistic problems, moving the sniping community away from the archaic G1 drag model to the more modern G7 standard, and embedding the Applied Ballistics solver into Kestrel weather meters and other devices which are in widespread use by snipers across US DoD and NATO allies. He is also a frequent speaker at DoD forums and conducts ballistic seminars across the country for both military and civilian attendees.

Past winners of The Hathcock Award include Todd Hodnett, Buford Boone, and SGM Pete Gould, USA (Ret).

“It is truly humbling and deeply gratifying that my work has value to our nation’s Armed Forces.  Being selected for the Hathcock award is the highest honor I've received in my career.” – Bryan Litz

Bryan received the award on June 4, at the National Defense Industrial Association 2019 Armament Systems Forum in Fredericksburg, VA

    Wild Bill, check the Applied Ballistics web site…..books and papers available. Custom Drag Curves (CDC), as available in Applied Ballistics Ballistics Solver (free standing or in Kestrel 5700AB) are step up even from the G7 as a G7 BC is only accurate at one velocity and compares against G7 standard projectile.. Whereas, the CDC replicates the specific bullet drag curve over the full velocity range.

    So what are these publications that Bryan has written about the G7 model?
