We reference research and data collected by Bryan Litz and the guys at Applied Ballistics, LLC. often on AccuracyTech. I always try to do it without giving away what they’ve spent many long hours and who knows how much money to collect. Today’s article is a book report of sorts on their newest offering, Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting, Volume 2! For those of you wondering whether or not it’s a worthwhile read I can tell you from the get go, it’s well worth the money. I’ll try to discuss some of what’s in the book and my impressions without giving anything away!

MLOK vs Keymod is the topic of today’s article. Like many other internet slap fights I expect most will look at this like Ford vs Chevy. Different strokes for different folks. However, there are some differences between the two designs and the amount of support they have. We’ll talk about some of those differences and some anecdotal stuff this author has seen when using the two different systems. If you’re after a clear winner I think you’re in for a disappointment but if you want to delve a bit deeper into which systems have which advantages, keep reading!
This was another reader request in regards to shooting from a bench. We’ll discuss how to go about shooting from a bench and how it’s different than prone. I’m not going to claim Benchrest levels of precision because that’s a whole other sport. However, we frequently find ourselves shooting from positions other than prone. So discussing how shooting from a bench can be different and some tricks to make it more stable can be useful. This is also the position a lot of people tend to learn how to shoot from with a parent at the range. So there’s definitely some merit to discussing it and that’s the focus of today’s article!
If you’ve been shooting at any point in your life you’ve probably heard the phrase, “Aim Small, Miss Small!” What does it really mean though? How does it apply to precision shooting in particular? There’s really two components to this phrase, the point of aim and the definition of the target at distance. The idea is fairly simple and I’ve found it to be quite true in real world shooting. It’s easiest to see with novice shooters. If you hand them a pistol, rifle, whatever, and tell them to shoot the target they will. The rounds will likely land all over the target whether it’s a traditional bullseye or something more modern. If you tell them to pick a small detail, as in aim at the top button of the bad guy’s shirt…the rounds group tighter. Aim small, miss small!
This one’s for Don and the other folks out there scratching their heads about neck tension and how it applies to reloading. To put it simply, neck tension is how tight the neck is holding the bullet from slipping forward into the rifling as pressure builds in the case when fired. Instead of being measured with physics terms like friction and force, it’s typically referred to in thousandths of an inch. How does all that apply to your hand loading practices, though? Does it matter at all? Should you be annealing? We’re going to cover all of it in this article on the merits of neck tension!
Hey everyone it’s the bearded barbarian from the north again. I can hear you shouting at your monitors “Finally! Don got off his butt and got writing again.” Well there’s been more to it than that lately and I’ll spare you the details. Today I’m going to be talking to you about …
Today I’m going to give you guys some information less about what kind of gear to grab, but instead where to find it: Mile High Shooting! I’ve mentioned Mile High Shooting a number of times in various articles over the years but I haven’t really dedicated an entire post to them thus far. That’s going to change today! The main reason I’m devoting an article specifically to Mile High Shooting is because they’re that good! Their slogan is, “A Mile Above the Rest,” and it’s very true. The folks at Mile High Shooting will get you squared away whatever your precision shooting needs might be. They have a massive inventory of precision shooting goodies and they’re the North American distributor for Accuracy International!
