New LR Shooter Help

First posting here, hope to get this correct! I am a long time hunter and shooter but new to long range shooting--to me 300+ yards. Never had any real training, mostly just trial and error. I have learned to be a decent shot but really want to take things to the next level. Looking for suggestions on introductory books, videos, instructors, whatever you more experienced folks might recommend to help me become more familiar with terminolgy, technical aspects, rifle maintenance etc. Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: New LR Shooter Help

I would contact Defensive Edge (site sponsor) and order his dvds. he has a "how to" video, that eplains equipment used, how to use it, minute of angle instruction etc.

he also offers a longrange class that i have heard is outstanding. i will be taking it in late june.

I have watched his dvd's (probably 20 times each) and think they are worth the money for sure.
