I'm not trying to me mean.

Also, I cannot remember ever opening a "How To" book and seen so many pictures of an author photographing himself.

I have nothing against varmint hunting or book about varmint hunting but the title is misleading.

Format: Paperback
Apart from misinterpreting what I call long range shooting and Mr. Brezny's version, I find the book to be quite amateurish in format, editing and presentation. There are pictures with incorrect captions e.g. page nine purports to be a Ruger and to me looks like a Savage, page 24 shows a Contender in .22 Hornet but apparently is one of the .17 rimfires. Now a .17 rimfire may be a long range rimfire but that was not what led me to buy this book. The book is loaded with pictures of L.P. staring grimly off into the distance but the book would have been better served offering more on long range shooting than a, to me, narcissistic panoply of pictures. I gave up trying to make sense of it all by page 30 or so. In addition, the cover was extraordinarily difficult to see, even with my best scope, at 600 yards and was cause of more than a few misses. Now I realize that a book such as this necessarily entails assessing the authors' opinion but for me, it was "that's all I can stands, 'cause I can't stands no more". Would that I'd have found this in a public library or better yet been paid to read it.

This book is just the worst piece I have ever seen written on this subject. There is no specific information that would educate or prepare someone for long range shooting. The coverage of firearms is just a listing of what guns and cartidges are available from major manufacturers with little offered regarding applicablility. The rest is just a collection of mundane stories...sort of like watching bass fishing on TV.

The author is contradictory from one chapter to the next, bascially wandering from one opinion to another as the book goes on. At one point he suggests the 7mm Remington magnum is a great selection for chuck hunting, after suggesting the 223 Remington and suggesting the 22-250. My favorite quote was "Recently, the 300 Winchester magnum is getting some attention for long range shooting" or maybe ""The scope is the eye of the shooter for long range hunting".

The author opens by ridiculing the opinion of someone who selected the 17 Remington for long chuck shooting, but later goes on to post data for the 17 Mach II and 22 LR cartridges. By the time he was done recommending, he had even included the 30-30 WCF and 50 BMG for long range sport shooting. I'm not trying to me mean. I am sure the author is a nice guy, as are his buddies, services and suppliers he covers in this work, but then I was charged $16 to read this tripe. Was the book inspirational in some way? Yes, it pretty much means I have a chance of publishing my work on hobbyist neurosurgery.

This book is not easy to read, not helpful if you are interested in learning how to shoot long distances and fairly infantile in presentation. Moreover, it's predominately a book on varmint hunting. I have nothing against varmint hunting or book about varmint hunting but the title is misleading. I wish I had just thrown the money out the window of my car, it would have been more satisfying.

Format: Paperback
If your goal is to become a better rifle marksman and learn about shooting at long range this book will be of little help.

No discussion of shooting fundamentals or how to improve them. Nothing coherent on reading wind or dealing with the effects environment play on bullets at distance. While the author occasionally tosses out the letters MOA he never bothers defining it or its use in long range shooting.

He suggests that long range shooting is all about "going with your gut." I guess centuries of research in ballistics and lessons learned in formal long range marksmanship competition were just a waste...

From this book, I have no idea what the author's background in long range shooting is. He doesn't even bother to lie about a resume or relevant experience. He does give out manufacturer's specs, so I suppose he's actually held a rifle before. If the author does know something about teaching effective long range rifle shooting, he failed to write about it in this book.

Do not buy.

Format: Paperback
Remember when you were a kid and you opened a box of Grape Nuts and looked for the Grapes and the Nuts? Fast forward, - this book is not about Long Range Shooting; it is a very general overview of the gear. There is very little information about technique. There is some information about long range technique, but you really have to dig for it.

It is a list of gear with the author wandering from here to there are how he shot this or that. Horrible book. Also, I cannot remember ever opening a "How To" book and seen so many pictures of an author photographing himself. Page after page of photographs of different calibers and pictures of the author holding up some animal. If you are looking for a book on timing, heart rate, breathing, positions, barrel torque and rotational energy, trigger pull methods and trigger technique, my goodness is this a total rip off. The book reads like a varmint hunting article in a very cheap magazine.

Nowhere does it say on the cover that this book is about varmint hunting, and the author who titles the book "Long Range Shooting" is oblivious to the fact that a significant number of people, and many of them are hunters too, are strongly opposed to hunting animals not for food, but purely for sport. If you are interested in this book because you are looking for something on target shooting, "MOA" click yourself clear of this printed ballistic box of Grape Nuts because there are no grapes and there are no nuts.
