BRAND NEW: Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting - 3rd Edition
In this book, author, champion shooter and Ballistician Bryan Litz breaks down the complex science of accuracy into layman’s terms that are easy to understand and apply. The objective of each subject matter is to present information to the reader which they can use to hit targets at long range.
The traditional role of exterior ballistics has been to account for the variables related to bullet flight so accurate fire solutions can be computed. Author Bryan Litz believes that ballistics has more to offer. Weapon Employment Zone (WEZ) analysis is the calculation of hit percentages. New for this third edition, the subject of WEZ analysis is explored and some enlightening topics are presented regarding the effects of environmental uncertainties on your hit percentage, as well as how the ballistic performance of your rifle and bullet affects hit percentage as well. This edition also includes the latest version of the Applied Ballistics Point Mass Solver on CD. Combined with experimentally measured BC’s, this program is capable of modeling extremely accurate trajectories as verified in Chapter 8.

Ballistic Performance of Rifle Bullets
Ballistic Performance of Rifle Bullets. Straight from the Applied Ballistics Laboratory, this book contains live fire test data on 400 modern rifle bullets. This new addition to the Applied Ballistics Library is a bullet data reference book which includes detailed information on 400 rifle bullets from .22 to .408 caliber. Each bullet has a full page of information including: dimensioned drawing, Ballistic Coefficient (BC) data based on live fire testing, and stability data for various twist rates and environmental conditions.

Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting
This book documents the ongoing R&D taking place in the Applied Ballistics laboratory. Many topics are covered in this first Volume, including the effects of twist rate on muzzle velocity, BC (supersonic and transonic), precision, even spin rate decay for various rifling profiles is tested experimentally. Other sections detail the evolution of modern rifle, bullet, and optic design. Results from extensive chronograph testing are presented which show the strengths and weaknesses of available commercial chronographs.
High tech instrumentation such as laser rangefinders and wind measurement devices are explained in detail by contributing author Nick Vitalbo.
The series is heavily based in experimental ballistics, and takes a sort of 'mythbusters' approach to many of the questions and problems faced by modern long range shooters. In today’s world of marketing hype and movie magic, Applied Ballistics continues to explore long range shooting using the scientific method, and publishes the results in a non-biased way that's easily understood by the layman.
Future volumes are planned to cover the ongoing testing and evaluation activities of Applied Ballistics.
Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting
This book focuses on exploring the uncertainties and inaccuracies of real world shooting so the reader can make well informed decisions about how to improve their hit percentage in any scenario. Bryan has again, provided us with an easy to read and understand book detailing out the more complex science behind the shooting sport.
Features of Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting: Broken into three parts titled: Precision, Accuracy, and Weapon Employment.
Part 1 focuses on Precision, which explores how hit percentage is affected by variables affecting group size, including:
Muzzle velocity variation
Range estimation error
Wind estimation error, and
Inherent rifle precision
Part 2 focuses on Accuracy, which is how well the group is centered around the aimpoint. Chapters in the Accuracy section include:
Leveling your sights
Secondary trajectory effects
Calibrating ballistic solutions, and
Live fire verification
Part 3 focuses on Weapon Employment Zone (WEZ) analysis including:
300 Winchester Magnum
300 Win Mag vs. .338 Lapua Mag
Wind Sensor Array design
Medium and big game hunting
Military and tactical shooting
