Re-tread looking for refresher reading materials - books
Hey there y'all!
I did a lot of long range hunting shooting and competitive shooting as a kid but got away from it a LONG time ago- 25 years. Now I'm wanting to get back into it but there's SO much that's foggy, forgotten or simply changed that I'm starting all over again. So, I'm looking for a few good books to read on the basics of long-range shooting, ballistics and hand-loading. As a kid he trained me and turned me into a really great shooter and I know it broke his heart when I drifted away and got interested in other things. My dad, who passed 7 years ago now, was a member of the Army rifle team and a Camp Perry competitor back in the 60's and my getting back into serious shooting is a way for me to pay tribute to my dad and for me to feel closer to him.
Any suggestions would sure be appreciated!
Right now I'm shooting a 25 WSSM and finishing a AR build with one of LaRue's Stealth Sniper uppers with an 18" barrel. I know it's not ideal for truly long range shooting but it's something I always wanted to build and with the way the election is going it seemed like a prudent time to build it. Once it's finished, though, I'm going to look at something like a .308, 300 Win Mag or a 300 Ultra Mag. Maybe these guns will influence the recommendations you make on reading materials?
Thanks, in advance!
