    Environmental Hazards By Darrell Holland

    A great article. You can tell that Darrell is a very good teacher. It's should be required reading for anyone thinking of long range hunting.

    That along with:
    Long Range Hunting on a Budget by Jerry Teo
    Low Priced Long Range Scopes by Ian McMurchy
    Setting Up Your Long Range Scope by Jerry Teo
    Precision Reloading For Long Range Hunting by Jerry Teo

    While this may seem like a lot of reading, given the seriousness of the endeavor, it really isn't and remember that the information here is FREE. There are some places that charge $1500+ for this kind on knowledge. Not that $1500 it isn't worth it... but, again, it's FREE here.

    Most excellent article and long overdue I feel.

    One aspect that needs greater emphasis is wind estimation. As an NRA shooter I well know the vagaries of wind and in the real world without flags, you're in WAG (wild a-- guess) territory. How many guys can confidently distinguish a 5mph from a 10mph wind, let alone have any concept of the angle and relative importance of close versus distant wind?

    Your suggestion of the 12" squares is great. Humbling for sure.

    Darrell

    +2 on this article.

    I particularily like you emphasizing the importance of the powder selection and use of accurate chrono data for your range card/data.

    Too often here we have seen the advocated use of temp sensitive powders and even highly sensitive surplus powders for inexperienced shooters and reloaders.

    This article needs to be the first "go to" article for any new LR shooter and even more experienced.

    thanks

    BH
