Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting Volume 2 furthers the scientific discoveries of the Applied Ballistics laboratory.
Containing all new research by author Bryan Litz along with contributing authors Nick Vitalbo and Cal Zant use scientific methodology and careful testing to answer the important questions faced by long range shooters.
Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting - Volume 2 explores in detail a number of topics, the most notable of which are:
- Bullet dispersion including group convergence.
- Advanced hand-loading including bullet pointing and trimming, powder measurement, flash hole deburring, neck tension and fill ratio. Each topic is explored with extensive live fire, and the resulting information helps to guide hand loaders in a deliberate path to success.
- Nick Vitalbo’s material on laser rangefinder performance is a landmark piece of work in the industry, and
- Cal Zant’s chapter on composite wrapped barrels presents detailed test results on how these barrels perform compared to conventional options.
The current bullet library of measured G1 and G7 ballistic coefficients is included as an appendix. This library currently has data on 533 bullets in common use by long range shooters.
If you’re a long range shooter who strives to understand the science of your craft, this latest installment of the Modern Advancement series is a must read!
