I haven't received a tracking number or order confirmation of any sorts yet.??

Thank you Sir,
I just got the email, mine is on it's way

Re: New Book: Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting

I intended to address this thread sooner.

The two posters above must have been referring to the first book: "Applied Ballistics for LR Shooting", because we didn't get the new book: "Accuracy and Precision for LR Shooting" from the printers until late last week.

Most pre-orders for "Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting" shipped yesterday, and the rest will go out today.
http://appliedballisticsllc.com/book2.html

Here's a 'hero pic' of the latest instructional material from Applied Ballistics



Books are now in stock and will ship directly.

The most common question we got about the new book is: "How is it different from the first book?"

The first book: "Applied Ballistics for LR Shooting" covers the elements of long range shooting and explains how all the various mechanisms of external ballistics affect trajectories. It's also the book that contains detailed drawings, BC and stability data for hundreds of bullets.

The new book: "Accuracy and Precision for LR Shooting" explains the impact of external ballistic effects in terms of hit percentage. For example, if you choose to ignore Coriolis Effect in your ballistic solution, how much will your hit percentage be reduced on a 10" target at 1000 yards? How about a 5" target at 500 yards? How much would your hit percentage be improved on a 15" target at 1200 yards if you reduce wind uncertainty from +/-3 mph to +/-2 mph?
There are also numerous performance comparisons between different classes of cartridges. For example: how much higher is hit percentage for a .338 Lapua Magnum than a .308 Winchester for common environments and targets?

The book identifies accuracy and precision effects and defines their effects separately.
Did you ever wonder why it's so easy to shoot a 10 inch group at 1000 yards, but how difficult it is to hit a 10 inch target at 1000 yards on the first shot? Shooting a 10 inch group is precision, but centering the group is a challenge of accuracy.
It's quite common for long range shooters to focus 90% of their effort on the precision aspect, and only 10% on accuracy. To actually hit targets, you need a balance of accuracy and precision, with accuracy becoming increasingly more important as range is extended.

As with all Applied Ballistics materials, the goal of this book is to improve your success and enjoyment of long range shooting thru better understanding of the underlying science.

Enjoy!

-Bryan

No Bryan I was referring to the new book, I emailed Jennifer and it was a goof on PayPal's part, I don't believe it was on your end so much. I did kinda suck in the mean time watching the mail box though. lol

Sorry, it was the Berger book, not Accuracy and Precision for Long Range.

Re: New Book: Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting

Bryan,

This is by far the best product I have used to date to assist with coaching new shooters on confidence with not only precision but more important accuracy. Mental visualization of that confidence and now a book predicting probabilities applied to the long range shooter and specifically hunting has been long overdue.

Awsome, Awsome, Awsome! A must read for those seeking the science and confidence with predicting that first round hit.
