Any suggestions on a LR magazine I should be getting. I would like one that deals more with equipment and technique, than actual hunting situations/stories.

Not a suggestion specifically for long range, but shooting times is the most objective, technical oriented magazine i have found outside of the internet. less advertising than most, and good wighting. i look forward to mine each month.

this right here is as good as it gets... and it's free!

all the shooting magazines I've looked at always get into pistols and AR's more than LR rifles. I page through semi-auto short barreled personal defense weapons to get to the one article every so often on long range shooting. Everyone is afraid of the ethics thing and it just probably doesn't have the readers' interest as much as the more "fun" and exotic shooting sports.

For some info on the equipment and its uses this website is as good as it gets. You may want to go to Defensive Edge and get Shawn's videos on long range shooting too.

Benchrestcentral.com has some good info, from a benchrest perspective. Snipershide.com also has some good info, but more of a tactical perspective.

You might want to also consider some of the books on technique etc.

Yes, Precision Shooting is an excellent magazine - Precision Shooting Magazine - Welcome While it doesn't state it, I believe they will sell you a back issue so you can get a feel for the pub prior to putting up the $37/year. AND, they have a LOT of relevant books for sale.

There is also an online pub from the UK - Target Shooter -
Target Shooter

The Fifty Caliber Shooters Association (FCSA) also has a great, professionally done pub - but you need to become a member to get it (or pay a lot for back issues)...and, of course, it is focused towards folks shooting 50 BMG-type rifles. That noted, there is a lot of transfer for ERL shooters below 50 cal. They'll send you a current issue for a look-see ($2.95 for S&H) Fifty Caliber Shooters Association - read about half way down the home page (this link).

There is also a semi-pub that is one of the best you will find - AccurateShooter.com Bulletin - AccurateShooter.com Bulletin. Use the calendar on the right to browse back through their "product" - updated daily.

Have fun - its addictive!

How about Precision Shooting?

I haven't subscribed to this magazine for a long time, but if anywhere, they would be an ideal venue for long range range shooting articles.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
