In his second book, Bryan Litz, chief ballistician for Berger Bullets, offers an extremely detailed yet practical guide on how to become proficient at long-range marksmanship. Far more than a collection of drop and windage tables with a few tips, Bryan’s guide looks in depth at performance of various calibers, ways to calculate the shot, and how hit probability and group dispersion are affected by conditions, bullet choice, and other factors. Despite the wealth of technical information, the book is engaging and easy to understand, whatever your current level of experience. Bryan also explains “Weapon Employment Zone Analysis” (WEZ) – a method for quantifying the hit percentage of a given rifle against a specific target and how it relates to hunting and target shooting. There’s even an entire chapter comparing the long-range performance of the 300 Winchester Mag and the 338 Lapua Mag rounds due to their extensive employment by the military. 296 pages, 6" x 9" hardcover.
