Re: I need a writer to review Bryan Litz' new book.

Currently on chapter 3, but I can't write for the life of me. When I finish it I'll be glad to put up my thoughts though.

Len your review of the book is right on and it's good to have a second opinion.
The books autographed by Walt, Michelle, Eric and myself were the Berger Loading Manuals. The book being discussed here is "Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting"; a totally different book but they were both announced on the Berger website so I can see how you thought that.

Just wanted to clarify so no one was disappointed that their book wasn't autographed by all the others.

Take care,
-Bryan

Re: I need a writer to review Bryan Litz' new book.

Sorry I haven't back to this thread to comment on and to thank all for their offers.

What I need in a writer is someone familiar with most or all of the terms in the book as mentioned in the summary included in this thread.

Writer should have good experience as a long range shooter.

2 or 3 good photos needed.

Re: I need a writer to review Bryan Litz' new book.

I'm in the middle of reading "Accuracy and Precision for LR Shooting" right now. I won't spoil the ending but what I am learning and understanding from the book is the cumulative effect of small errors and one's chances of hitting particular targets at different ranges.

Not too long ago I had the opportuinity to shoot out to 1490 yds with my 7RM. If my memory serves me, I hit an approximately 2' square steel plate 3 out of 10 shots. I wasn't feelin' too good about it because I'm used to shooting small groups at considerabley shorter ranges. To date, his book has explained some of why I had that result, that day.

Re: I need a writer to review Bryan Litz' new book.

Len,
I am a somewhat experienced shooter. Not as much a LRHunter yet, only kills at 500 and 908, but I have a high master classification in f class both mid range and long range. I would certainly like to review the book. Anything else you need to know, feel free to ask.
