Perfect preparation for moving targets: the new lead distance app from SWAROVSKI OPTIK
A successful hunting trip is based on outstanding hunting expertise, an ability to sight the target correctly in seconds, and on being an excellent shooter.

To help prepare for the challenge that hunters face with driven hunts, SWAROVSKI OPTIK has developed an innovative lead distance app that is available now for you to download for free from the App Store and Google Play.
