This edition of Bryan Litz’s comprehensive volume on long-range ballistics includes two additional chapters covering extended long-range shooting and monolithic bullets. Nearly every other chapter has been updated; the chapter on wind deflection has almost doubled in size. Bryan provides experimentally determined ballistic coefficient data for over 235 long-range bullets. Bryan thoroughly explains the fundamentals of longrange ballistics to help anyone wishing to become an accomplished long-range shooter. Topics covered include ballistic coefficients, gravity drop, wind deflection, uphill/ downhill shooting, the Coriolis Effect, spin drift, effective sight use, and bullet stability, with performance analysis for hunters, competitive shooters, and tactical/lethality type shooting, all in a reader-friendly writing style so you can develop the necessary tools to calculate precise trajectories for long-range shooting. Includes a CD with the Point Mass Ballistics Solver (Ver. 2.0) software that lets you calculate potential ballistic coefficients on your computer. A former aerospace engineer and US Air Force missile designer, Bryan became the chief ballistician for Berger bullets in 2008. He was a US National Palma Champion in 2008, a member of the winning 2008 US Team in the Spirit of America International Rifle Match, and a national record holder for the NRA iron-sight midrange course in 2009. 578 pages, hardcover, with dimensional drawings and measured drag data for 236 bullets.
