Book Review - Applied Ballistics For Long Range Shooting By Gustavo F. Ruiz

Quote:
Long Range is all about ballistics. Beyond that, no more than luck can be expected without it.

Writing a review is not an easy task, at least for me. Why? Because is hard to make a synthesis of a technical book like the one I’m going to share my impressions of with you.

First of all, it’s important to recognize that for anyone interested in pursuing an interest in shooting/hunting beyond the 400/500 yard mark, the understanding of the fundamentals of exterior ballistics is a strict requisite. Read More...

Gus,

Thank you for the excellent review!

It was a big challenge to write out some of these ideas in layman's terms, but it has proven well worth the effort according to your review and the feedback I've gotten so far from readers.

You make some good valid points about the Pejsa approach. No doubt you know it well, as that's what your program uses as a solution engine. I would be interested in a discussion on the merits of the various approaches (Pejsa/Siacci/PM, etc) on another thread, but I'd rather avoid having it here.

Great work on Loadbase by the way! Your feature set is second to none, and you're the first one to offer a G7 capability in a (non-iPhone) mobile device. You're to be commended for listening to your users and providing them with the useful options they want/need to be more successful shooters.

Take care,
-Bryan

Hi Bryan,

Honestly, your work is awesome, I just don't want to think about the effort you did to write it, especially as you wisely commented, in simple terms!

Hope you will surprise us with more excellent production, we clearly need this kind of insight!

Best wishes for the best book in recent times.

Cheers,

Gus

PS: Our community is simply lucky for having at hand your hard efforts. I truly look forward to see more as I'm just another shooter who had the pleasure to share some ideas with you. Thanks for your great kindness and positive attitude!

Re: Book Review - Applied Ballistics For Long Range Shooting By Gustavo F. Ruiz

You two ugly dudes just did a number on me; just when I was beginning to
like the two of you. Now I'm seriously considering buying the book. I knew it
had to be good but now I'm itching to get it.

So much for liking you guys!!!
