About the Book
There's a lot of good information available on long range shooting which explains how to correct trajectories for drop, wind deflection, etc. This book takes it a step further and discusses how various uncertainties affect your hit percentage.
Weapon Employment Zone (WEZ) analysis is a method for showing how effective a weapon system is throughout its range of employment in terms of hit percentage. WEZ analysis is explained, and applied throughout the book to show how effectiveness can be improved thru various means.
Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting is written in the same easy to understand language that made Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting such an enjoyable and effective book. Long range shooting can be very technical. However, author Bryan Litz, communicates these complex ideas in layman terms, so most average shooters can master the subject with little difficulty.

This is a serious work worthy of your attention if you are interested in long range shooting or are a competitor at long range matches.
Bryan Litz has put his military background and Aerospace Engineering degree to great use with the publication of "Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting: A Practical Guide for Riflemen." I have read a ton of marksmanship books and have delved into my share of books on ballistics to understand the theory behind accuracy and precision. However, this book has lifted the shroud of mystery behind the subject and has clarified at least to me a lot of the errors I have picked up over the years. The intent of this book as stated in the introduction "is to explore the uncertainties and inaccuracies of real world shooting so riflemen can make well informed decisions about how to improve their hit percentage". This is done by looking at the fundamentals of precision and accuracy, then supporting the facts in weapon employment zone analysis. All I can say is if Todd Hodnett of Accuracy 1st, one of the most respected and sought after instructors in the entire world recommends this book you know it has to be good! Overall, this book is must own for any professional shooter, no matter if you are military, police or recreational shooter.

(Hardcover, 6.5" x 9", highly illustrated, 300 pages)
It delves rather deeply into a statistical analysis of long range accuracy and where to focus your energy for improvement. Being a beginner myself, much of the material is above my skill level. But extremely informative and helpful none the less.
No matter what your skill level is, you will be better after you read this book! Litz goes into the theory behind the concepts, supports it with his computer models so you understand. Then to top it off, it's filled with practical-real world things you can do to improve your accuracy and precision...for long range shooting!
This is single handedly the best/most informative book I've ever read on the subject. Definitely a must read for any serious shooter!
