A bit over one month since launch, after some 1500 hits (at most well under 100 of my own in the process of maintaining and expanding), and after a very small handful of suggestions, here’s a site update:
Added a navigation section at the top of each page
Added site-wide search capability
Rifles – up to 61 companies, added color coding for the major cartridges
Rifle Components – up to 16 action/receiver companies, 10 barrel companies, 8 brake companies, 19 scope/base/rings companies, 18 stock and bipod companies, and 7 trigger companies
Ammunition Components (major work here) – up to 18 brass companies (added color coding for the major cartridges), up to 19 bullet/projectile companies (plus four matrixes going down to the company, product name, weight, model number, and link for 338, 375, 408, 416, 458, and 510 calibers, all in PDF format), up to 7 powder companies, and up to 7 primer companies
Reloading Equipment - up to 61 companies/items
Miscellaneous products – up to 21 companies/items
Gunsmiths – up to 22 companies
Ranges – up to 25
Retailers/E-tailers – up to 22
Training section added – 21 companies
Cartridges – up to 27 (with 3 chamber reamers drawings, and many more to come, courtesy of Dave Kiff at Pacific Tool and Gauge, plus CIP and SAAMI drawing links in the Reloading Equipment/Aids section)
Minimal expansion in Associations and Clubs, Information Sites and Forums, Legal, and Pubs, Articles, and Photos.
News section added – this update being the first post. I expect to add more interesting posts shortly and then do a weekly update based on what I can glean from the 100s of linked sites.
If you haven’t visited my site yet, please do so (please enter through the home page so we can all see the counter increment). I think you’ll find it to be an excellent start at exactly what it is intended to be, a resource for the ELR shooting community.
Finally, I really need feedback on what I’ve missed, what I’ve gotten wrong, and how the site can be improved to serve you. It’s a non-commercial site. It will get better faster with your help.
Re: Extreme Long Range (ELR) Resources - Site Update
The objective is as stated on the home page, "...(to provide) a non-commercial compendium of source links to products, services, and information for ELR shooters and anybody interested, as I am, in this area of firearms technology."
I will not be including a forum or any other means for offering or soliciting opinions or recommendations. This forum, Sniper's Hide, Bigger Hammer, Benchrest Central, Accurate Shooter, and others are available for those purposes.
Hopefully my site is a lot more efficient than doing Google searches. That is the plan...a compendium.
