  1. Long Range Hunting Ambush

    Long Range Hunting Ambush By Shawn Carlock In recent years long range hunting has come into style. Remington was the first company to recognize this market and introduced the Sendero line. While the coupling of flat shooting high energy rounds and precision rifles is common place today, I find that many people are lacking in techniques for their use. The most common use of the purpose-built...
  2. Reticle Perpendicularity

    Reticle Perpendicularity By Darrell Holland Long range shooters go through great pains to properly set-up their rifles for long range shooting. Bipods, muzzle brakes, cosine indicators and a host of other widgets often adorn their newly created thunder stick. How many of them actually check to see that their scope reticle is perpendicular to the bore? Often times they take for granted that...
  3. Texas Turkey Hunting As I Know It

    Texas Turkey Hunting As I Know It By Ian McMurchey I am NOT a bird hunter of any note. As a matter of fact I rarely shoot shotguns since rifles take up so most of my time. Despite this lack of shotgunning and bird-hunting experience I get to go on occasional hunts. I usually view these opportunities as new experiences more than hunts. For the life of me, I cannot understand why people get so...

  5. Shooting A 223 Rifle To A Mile Accurately

    Shooting A 223 Rifle To A Mile Accurately By Jerry Teo 223 To A Mile This long range 223 rifle project began last year after some very heated debates on a couple of shooting forums. The general consensus was that it is impossible, a huge waste of time and I was a little bit off my rocker. Sounded like a nice challenge to me. The quest is simple, can I get a 223 rifle using new high BC...
  6. Those Tiresome Rifle Maintenance Chores

    Those Tiresome Rifle Maintenance Chores By Darrell Holland How many times have we neglected our rifle maintenance over the years? Tired and wet, we return home to hibernate and replenish those vital body fluids lost during the hunt. Oftentimes we toss aside our most trusted friend in our selfish desire to seek comfort on the home front. Sound familiar? You bet it does! A hundred and fifty...
  7. 10 Ways To Stronger Rifle Field Shooting Positions

    10 Ways To Stronger Rifle Field Shooting Positions By Shawn Carlock After having spent years in the hunting fields, rifle competitions, and training arenas, I have noted that a high number of missed “field” shots in these conditions were the result of unstable or flat out poor shooting positions. Now, in the areas of hunting, rifle competition, and training, your field shooting position will...
  8. The F_ _ _ _ _ Word: Flinching

    The F_ _ _ _ _ Word: Flinching By Darrell Holland The admission and/or use of the F word is not socially acceptable in long range hunting/shooting circles. Pride, egos, and testosterone levels are all put on the line each and every time we shoulder a rifle in the presence of another male of the species. We tend to stand a little taller, our chest measurements increase, and we possess a...
  9. Optimizing Precision And Accuracy From VLD Bullets

    Optimizing Precision And Accuracy From VLD Bullets By Eric Stecker Background VLD bullets are designed with a secant ogive. This ogive shape allows bullets to be more efficient in flight (retain more velocity = less drop and wind deflection). While this result is desirable for many rifle shooters the secant ogive on the VLD bullets produces another result in many rifles. It can be difficult...

    Brass Preparation And Management By John W. Lewis ©Copyright 2009, Precision Shooting I have to believe that brass preparation and management is important to most, if not all, of the readers of this magazine. High quality brass that has been well prepared is considered vital by competitors to achieve small groups and high scores. Hand turning tool set up ready to cut. The hand that would...
