Single Handed Shooting

This short video was spurred by a technique I saw this morning, demonstrated by another instructor. Just because it is new, does not necessarily make it better. Try new techniques, but evaluate them based on the classic methods. There may be a reason the “old way” has stuck around so long.



Equipment used:

  • Sig Sauer TacOps Traditional 1911 (.45 ACP)
  • Oakley M Frame Alpha Glasses (Prizm Lens)
  • Hazard 4 “Heavy Water Diver” Watch
  • MSA Sordin Supreme X Ear Pro

 

Lapua Announces 6.5CM Brass for Q1 2017.

Lapua 6.5CMIt is “official”! Lapua has announced that brass for the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge will be available in the first quarter of 2017. The Lapua brass should offer some improvements over currently available brass. In addition to Lapua’s usual consistency, the new 6.5CM brass will use small rifle primers. Lapua also opted for a 1.5mm flash hole versus the industry standard 2mm. Hopefully this will help alleviate the need for small diameter firing pin holes on 6.5CM rifles.

Ruger Precision Rifle (Gen 2) Review

We first had a chance to handle and shoot the Ruger Precision Rifle at the 2016 SHOT Show. The outward appearance of the rifle was enough to grab our attention. Once we delved into the details we were hooked. Ruger designed this rifle to specifically target the precision rifle competition shooter. Continue reading Ruger Precision Rifle (Gen 2) Review

Mail Call Mondays Season 5 #24 – Applied Ballistics Seminar

Applied Ballistics Seminar (Sophia, NC)

ab_seminar_20161103_gh4_004If you have spent any amount of time in the precision rifle world, it is likely that you have heard of Bryan Litz and Applied Ballistics. Bryan is a long time competitive rifle shooter and current member of the US Rifle Team. He is also the Chief Ballistician of Berger Bullets. To say that Bryan wrote the book on modern rifle ballistics would be true. In fact, he has written several. I first became acquainted with Bryan’s work when I read “Applied Ballistics for the Long Range Shooter”. This book is now in Volume III, and contains an extensive library of tested G7 Ballistic Coefficients for popular long range bullets. I was incredibly excited when Applied Ballistics invited me to their seminar in Sophia, NC. Continue reading Applied Ballistics Seminar (Sophia, NC)
