Editorial Reviews

Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting is a book series by Bryan Litz which documents the ongoing R&D taking place in the Applied Ballistics laboratory. Many topics are covered in this first Volume, including the effects of twist rate on muzzle velocity, BC (supersonic and transonic), precision, even spin rate decay for various rifling profiles is tested experimentally. Other sections detail the evolution of modern rifle, bullet, and optic design. Results from extensive chronograph testing are presented which show the strengths and weaknesses of available commercial chronographs. High tech instrumentation such as laser rangefinders and wind measurement devices are explained in detail by contributing author Nick Vitalbo. The series is heavily based in experimental ballistics, and takes a sort of 'mythbusters' approach to many of the questions and problems faced by modern long range shooters. In today's world of marketing hype and movie magic, Applied Ballistics continues to explore long range shooting using the scientific method, and publishes the results in a non-biased way that's easily understood by the layman. Future volumes are planned to cover the ongoing testing and evaluation activities of Applied Ballistics.

This was a very readable book. I've ordered the next in the list of books by this author. The information is useful for anyone interested in learning more about the factors necessary for accuracy and precision in the shooting sports. The chapter on chronographs was particularly well done.

Recently decided to expand to 1000 yard/meter+ shooting. Bought a bunch of books. This is BY FAR the best one I've found.

Gave this book to my granddaughter's boyfriend, who is really into shooting and reloading. He seemed very pleased with it and was surprised that I was able to find a copy.
