Long-range rifle shooting has become a LOT more popular over the last five years or so, and the industry has taken notice! Now you can buy a 1/2 MOA rifle suitable for long-range shooting starting at about $1000.00 or even less. There are also a lot more great resources for long range shooting, including the new Long Range Precision Rifle Reloading Handbook from Lyman! Let’s take a look inside…

Here are some things I really like about this book:

  1. It’s packed with great information that’s categorized well.
  2. There are some great featured articles in the book, like “The history of 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor” by Dave Emary.
  3. There’s information about the background and applications for popular long-range rifle cartridges.
  4. There’s load data that even breaks down large rifle and small rifle primer data. Example: 6.5 Creedmoor which is available in both primer sizes.
  5. It’s very affordable, Midsouth Shooters Supply has it for under $12.00 right now!

I read the entire book, and am having my friend Eric do the same thing (he has a copy). Now we can discuss, and apply some of our learnings when we shoot together. If you want to learn more about long-range shooting, and/or just have great reference data and load data, I would pick up a copy!
