Lead Tech’s virtual reality shotgun ballistics are based on empirical data from thousands of patterning boards. Thankfully, Dr. AC Jones did the groundwork for us, and assisted LeadTech in getting our down-range patterns right.
All of Lead Tech’s simulations – the clay trajectories, the ballistics of the shot, and the patterns of the shot are based entirely on empirical data.
AC Jones wrote the book on shotgun patterning – based on 2,500 shot patterns. What Andrew Jones does not know about shotgun patterns and the effect of chokes on those patterns, is probably of no practical importance.
If you are going to accurately portray what the shot string does at the point of intercept, Jone’s work is invaluable.
