In this book, author, champion shooter, and Chief Ballistician Bryan Litz breaks down the complex science of accuracy into layman’s terms that are easy to understand and apply. The objective is to present information to the reader which they can use to hit targets at long range. AB LRS Store Link

Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting(2012)
book3This book is for riflemen interested in understanding their craft. This book breaks down and focuses on uncertainties and inaccuracies of real world shooting allowing you to make well informed decisions. 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.
