About the long rifles.

November 05, 2007 05:39AM
And learning how to shoot the LONG shots. <br> <br>I really advise getting these books. I had older versions of these books while I was in the infantry, and since I have been out they have really helped me refine my long-shooting ability. <br> <br>Now, some of these books will have things you don't need to know, like camo and movement tactics and whatnot, but there are alot of things in each of these books that can be applied to the recreational long shooter. <br> <br>"Home workshop .50 caliber sniper rifle" by Bill Holmes <br> <br>"Sniper training" FM 23-10 <br> <br>"Weapons evaluations for the Armed Professional and advanced collector" by Alan C. Paulson <br> <br>And, in my opinion, if you only want to get one book, this next book has it all... <br> <br>"The Ultimate Sniper" by Maj. John L. Plaster, USAR (Ret.) <br> <br>All of them are from "paladin press" you can find them on the paladin press website. <br> <br> <br>Utilizing the information in that last book, I have (only once in my life, I admit) shot a 3 shot- 1 MOA at 1200 yards with a cousin's .50 cal. <br> <br>(MOA = minute of angle, in marksmanship it means 1 inch at 100 yards...so I had 3 shots within 12 inches at 1200 yards....once....it's HARD) <br> <br> <br>And, like it or not, Optics is very important for the long shot. Once you have your range and windage estimations accurate, it doesn't matter unless you have some optics that allow for accurate compensation.

For &quot;sniper&quot; rounds, a .308, .30-30/.3006, or even a .270 would be ideal...

Someone not special, Esquire 209 November 05, 2007 01:46AM

So the movie shooter.

Cointreau 216 November 05, 2007 05:45AM

Yes, they can do that.

DurNominator 203 November 05, 2007 06:21AM

That assumes a perfectly trained sniper and perfect conditions. nt

I personally like the model 870 over the Mossberg 500, but I'm not an expert. nt

Remmington 870 has way more options and parts available for modifications n/t
