2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition

  The 2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition was held on May 27 - 29 in Finger, TN at the K&M Precision Rifle Training Shooting Complex. I had never been to K&M but knew I could expect excellence from the owner Shannon Kay. What makes K&M unique is it was purpose built for precision rifle training and competitive events from the ground up. The current range consists of more than 80 acres with a very recent acquisition of an additional 112 adjacent acres. On Friday, the range offered shooters an open range day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Steel targets were set out every 100 [...]

Applied Ballistics Spring Seminar

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHsqL80KpcE The next Applied Ballistics Seminar will be held May 23-24 at the Dallas/Addison Marriott in Dallas, TX. This two day seminar will cover practical elements of external ballistics. Information will be presented in a general way which applies equally to all long range shooting disciplines (hunting, target, tactical). Topics will be introduced from an academic first principles perspective. Once the scientific basis for the material is established, the ideas are further demonstrated with examples from instrumented live fire. They explain the science, and then present examples of the principles in action. The goal is that you’ll leave with an understanding of the subject [...]

2016 Cactus Classic

The Cactus Classic took place on March 19-20, 2016 at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ. This year's match had a great turnout with 138 total shooters, 3 of which were junior shooters. The Cactus had a full 5 days of practice, the Monday through Friday before the match. During this week we got to see a lot of familiar faces from last year as well as many new faces. For the most part, the days were full of great weather with normal Ben Avery conditions, meaning a bit of wind here and there. Thursday and Friday both had good conditions in comparison [...]

Introducing: The Berger 270 caliber 170 grain EOL Elite Hunter

Berger’s latest addition to the hunting line is another design inspired by Extreme Outer Limits (EOL); the 270 caliber 170 grain EOL Elite Hunter. This bullet is designed for maximum external and terminal ballistic performance in 270 caliber rifles that  have twist rates faster than the traditional 1:10”. Nearly all rifles chambered for 270 caliber are fitted with 1:10” twist barrels.  This relatively slow twist limits the length, weight and BC of bullets that can be stabilized.  Typically, the heaviest 270 bullets are around 150 grains because that is all that can be stabilized in a 1:10” twist. However, if a faster twist barrel is [...]

Berger Bullets Twist Rate Recommendations by Eric Stecker & Bryan Litz

At Berger Bullets, enhancing the rifle shooting experience is our primary objective and founding ideal.  Keeping our eyes constantly on this prize impacts every aspect of our operation.  Our goal is to establish the most accurate and up-to-date information possible, so trajectory predictions while using Berger Bullets are the most precise performance estimates available.  This data will be constantly reviewed and refined annually to maintain the accuracy of this information. Recently, we announced an update to our ballistic coefficient (BC), reference dimensions and twist rate recommendations data.  The update to the BC and reference dimensions data is the result of years of testing all the [...]
