Popular Long-Range Ballistics Book Re-Released in eBook and Hardcopy
Cedar Springs, MI – Applied Ballistics, LLC proudly re-released one of Bryan Litz’s first comprehensive books on long-range ballistics, Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting, in both eBook and hardcopy. With the amount of credible information available on long range shooting, explaining how to correct trajectories for drop, wind deflection, etc.; this book takes it a step further as Litz discusses how various uncertainties affect hit percentage.
Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting is the manual that lays the groundwork for understanding hit percentages of long-range rifle fire; the discussion centers around probability. “Given different sets of environmental and shooter related uncertainties, what are the ‘chances’ of hitting a target at a certain range?”
A method for calculating hit percentage is presented and used in a number of scenarios, in which Litz explores things like: the effect of range uncertainty, wind uncertainty, muzzle velocity and rifle precision on hit percentage for different size targets at various ranges. The two basic applications of this method are:
1. To determine your chances of hitting a certain target at a certain range with your specific rifle and uncertainties.
2. To research which variables affect hit percentage most for your intended target, so you can design an optimal rifle and ammo system for your application.
While based heavily in statistical calculations, the conclusions of many analyses agree well with the experience of knowledgeable shooters. Several live fire tests are presented throughout, which serve to validate the method as well.
“Ballistics commonly focuses on generating an accurate fire solution which is important, but there’s much more to learn and apply from the science of accuracy,” stated Litz. “A lot of analysis is presented in the book, which demonstrates valuable principles, but those analysis are static. The Applied Ballistics Analytics software is a program which allows you to calculate hit percentages for your specific rifle and target scenarios using the same method as the calculations in the book. Armed with the knowledge in the book, and the AB Analytics software, you’re empowered with a realistic understanding of your hit probability on any target, and what things you can do to improve it.”
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 for shooters of all capabilities. Long range shooting can be incredibly technical, and Litz communicates these complex scenarios into terms that allow most average shooters to master the subject with little difficulty.
Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting is available now on Amazon Kindle for $27.99 (Accuracy and Precision on Kindle) and through the Applied Ballistics Store in hardcover for $39.95 (Accuracy and Precision in Hardcover).
As part of the current re-release of this title, Applied Ballistics is offering the book, Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting for free with the purchase of the AB Analytics software. This offer is exclusively available through the Applied Ballistics web store (AB Analytics).
