“Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting” by Bryan Litz

Bryan Litz, Berger Bullets' Chief Ballistician, is proud to announce his latest offering to the long range shooting community.

He says, "Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting is written in the same layman's terms as Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting. The book focuses on defining the elements of accuracy and precision in a systematic way, and exploring their independent affects on hit percentage. The material is intended to help shooters make more informed decisions about their equipment and training. Ultimately, the [...]

Getting the Best Precision and Accuracy from VLD bullets in Your Rifle

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 rifle. It can be difficult to get the VLD to group well (poor accuracy). For years we encouraged shooters to use a base of cartridge to end of bearing surface OAL (I will use the term COAL to represent this dimension) which allows the VLD to touch the rifling or to be jammed in the [...]
