Virtual Reality Shotgun Ballistics – Derived From The Original Reality Courtesy of John Taylor
We did not have to re-invent the wheel on shotgun shell ballistics – we just had to buy the book with the eponymously succinct title of : Shotshells & Ballistics: Ballistic Data Out to 70 Yards for Shotshells from .410-, 28-,24-, 20-, 16-,12- and 10-Gauge for over 1,600 Different Loads and 22 Manufacturers Catchy eh… Read More
Virtual Reality Skills Transferred to Real Reality
Is not that easy. Evidently. Of all the games presented at the latest Virtual Reality conference in San Francisco few of them do what Lead Tech does: enable the user to practice something in virtual reality that they can actually do in real reality. Which is the reason virtual reality simulates reality – as opposed to the… Read More
The Best Virtual Reality Trap Shooting Game !
Lead Tech is finishing up Virtual Reality trap shooting. A draft shot from station 3 is shown below. We have experimented with showing static aim points like this popular wall chart, that Terry Jordan developed. Terry’s chart is an excellent practice tool for trap, but with virtual reality shooting, we can simulate depth perception and with the… Read More

Virtual Reality Shot Patterns Courtesy of Dr. AC Jones
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… Read More
The Best Virtual Reality Sporting Clays
We video’d one of the 5 Stand ranges at the world famous National Shooting Complex in San Antonio. We used a drone, piloted by Prestige Aerial of San Antonio to get all trajectories and do the lat/lon on the machines for an accurate layout. The Unity 3D programmers will take that information, do the ballistics on them and calculate… Read More
LeadTech Granted 2nd Patent on Virtual Reality Shooting Simulator !
We have just received an “Issue Notification” on our patent application to use our patented representation of lead in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Video Gaming applications. This 2nd patent is a continuation of the first one, which had 34 claims, and the 2nd patent describes and covers the use of the phantom clay technology,… Read More
Best Oculus Rift Shotgun Shooting Simulator – Draft Edition
This is a first draft– – (it takes a while to load) a 2D representation of our patent pending Unity 3D skeet shooting simulation that shows LeadTech’s patented method of representing lead with a “phantom” clay in front of the real clay. This looks a whole lot better with a an Oculus Rift headset on,… Read More
Visualizing the Future – The Science Behind Lead Tech
In displaying the phantom clay (not just the other clay), the Lead Tech user will be training themselves to anticipate where the clay is going by seeing its phantom moving ahead of it. This is by no means a new concept. One of the first people to articulate it was Nash Buckingham, the all-American footballer, sportsman, naturalist… Read More
