Nielsen-Kellerman Launches KESTREL BALLISTICS

Boothwyn, PA based Nielsen-Kellerman announced the launch of a new website: Kestrel Ballistics. It will be geared, they tell us, to provide educational resources for long-range shooters.

Being as how we enjoy shooting creatures that once had a parent from long distances then charring their flesh with fire, this makes us very happy.  (We also enjoy shooting them at short distance and eating them later, but that's not quite so apropos.)

Nielsen-Kellerman are the same folks who make the Kestrel weather meters you've probably seen us using.

Here’s what they tell us about the new website.


Nielsen-Kellerman (NK), creators and manufacturers of Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meters, has announced the official launch of their new website, The new site features an educational section, “Schoolhouse,” containing a regularly updated library of information for long-range shooters of all skill levels, drawn from the most respected experts in the industry; and an e-commerce section  where customers may purchase quality long range shooting accessories such as scopes, range finders, weather vanes and Kestrel weather and ballistics meters, among other items.

The “Schoolhouse,” an educational resource, will contain articles and other pertinent information from Kestrel’s internal experts and product managers, as well as Kestrel’s industry partners including Applied Ballistics, Accuracy 1st, nVisti and more.  The goal of the Schoolhouse section is to continuously update long-range shooters about industry advances, new techniques and how to use a Kestrel Weather Meter and ballistics calculator for improved precision and accuracy.

Products offered through the e-commerce platform will include Kestrel Ballistics Meters, in addition to other trusted long range shooting products from companies such as Bushnell, MagnetoSpeed and Accuracy 1st – making this the first time Nielsen-Kellerman will be a reseller of these top-tier items.

“As Kestrel has progressed in the long-range shooting space, we have seen that there is a real thirst for knowledge among long-range shooters. Just as we never ship a product without ensuring that it will provide accurate, reliable information, we will ensure that only contains articles, advice and products that customers can rely on. We are truly enjoying expanding our customer offering in this area.” stated Nielsen-Kellerman CEO, Alix James. “We have greatly enjoyed building relationships with other innovative, quality-focused manufacturers in the precision shooting niche, and really look forward to providing one site where in-depth information about their products can be shared.”
