Book Description

The objective of this book is to explain the important elements of exterior ballistics so shooters can effectively apply the science to achieve greater success on the range or in the field. This book also offers an original contribution to the long range shooting sports: experimentally determined Ballistic Coefficient (BC) data for over 225 long range bullets of all popular brands. With accurately measured BC data, shooters are empowered to make more precise trajectory predictions than were possible prior to this publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every long range shooter needs to read this book. January 15, 2012
By JKK
Format:Hardcover
So much of long range shooting information is based upon myth and baseless information. Finally someone has written a book that dispels the myths, and applies science in a format a layman can read and understand. On top of that Bryan Litz went one step further than other texts and actually tests 236 longs range bullets using the same methods for all of them. This makes the third section of the book a valuable resource for any long range shooter or reloader because you can objectively compare bullets. (Manufactures differ in their test methods so comparing a bullets BC to another manufacturer isn't always reliable).
I never thought I would say this about a ballistics book, but I couldn't put it down once I started reading it.

If you have ever been interested in learning about the science of long range shooting, this is a great place to start. Even non-geeks will appreciate the information. Litz does an excellent job of taking highly technical information and presenting it in a manner that most folks can understand.

This is one of the finest books on ballistics, and those things that affect the bullet's flight path in long range and extremely long range shooting. Bryan presents potentially confusing formulae and lots of data in a common sense and practical way that is easy to understand, and absolutely critical to your success in long range shooting.

The included data measured by Bryan Litz for common bullets is worth its weight in gold. You will no longer have to wonder if your ballistic solution program is accurate, because your inputs will now be on target.

I highly recommend this book for students of long range shooting.

5.0 out of 5 stars should be REQUIRED READING for shooting distance March 10, 2013
Format:Hardcover
Well written, easy to follow, and EXTREMELY educational. Anyone interested in shooting distance should study this book before they spend a cent on anything else. The software that comes with is simple to use and has been DEAD on. Last I checked it was still available on the applied ballistics page.

4.0 out of 5 stars No App/Program with the Kindle Version! August 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased the Kindle edition. I would have given it five stars if there was an included app/program (or even a discount!) to do ballistic calculations included in the purchase price!.. didn't realize I would have to lay out more money.... Might want to factor that into the Kindle vs Hard Cover version....

Despite best efforts, this is still quite a technical read. If you want to learn about external ballistics, this is a great resource. If you are new to this field, you might want to have a dictionary and/or encyclopedia (google always works too).

This is an excellent book if you want to understand a bullet's flight and become a better shot at long range, like Camp Perry or in F Class matches. It contains a complete course in external ballistics written in plain English. The layman can understand it; there are some equations included but you do not have to be a mathematician to understand his explanations. Bryan includes a disc with a computer program that will do all the calculations for you, so you do not have to be a programmer to use what he teaches either.

What I find most about the book is that it is well laid out. It starts out with a solid introduction and then devotes a well-written explanation of each factor affecting a bullet's flight in its own chapter. Again, the explanations are easily understood, and not just by an engineer or physicist.

To top it off, Bryan includes actual test data for widely used bullets for long range shooting. This is test data, not data made up to enhance a product's sales. You can use it to help make a better selection of the bullet you need for the shooting you plan to excel at. And, this data is on the disc along with the program.

All in all, I highly recommend this book for anyone aspiring to shoot at long range.
