Is TrackingPoint's Precision Guided Firearm the Future of Long-Range Shooting? - 7
by The Editors
This new shooting system from TrackingPoint takes fighter jet technology and applies it to long-range shooting. Here's how it works. First the shooter tags his target. Then the scope takes a ballistic formula accounting for distance, wind, elevation, temperature and a wide variety of other factors and tracks the target. The system only allows the shooter to fire when the reticle (or in this case an 'x') is in proper position to hit the target.
This system is being made for military, hunting, and target shooting applications. It's makers say it will cut years off the learning curve for long-range shooting.
