Controlling the Wobble Zone

In Blog by Rich6 Comments

We’ve been talking a lot about tripods and positional shooting lately so today we’re going to discuss controlling the wobble zone. The testing of the higher end tripod upgrades continues and you will be hearing more about that soon. However, the wobble zone is a topic that’s worth discussing since it’s something you deal with during any positional shooting work. Essentially, what we’re discussing is the size and path of reticle drift when shooting from an unstable position. It follows a fairly predictable pattern but the size and speed of the wobble zone will vary depending on the stability of the shooting position. Lets get to it!

Evolution of Tripod Shooting – PT2

In Blog by Rich1 Comment

In this weeks article on the Evolution of Tripod Shooting we’re going to take a closer look at the shift in tripod choices and technology. In Part 1 we talked a little about where tripod shooting came from, how it was first adapted to long range precision shooting, and the direction its now shifting toward. This week we’re going to discuss more about the individual changes we’re starting to see. Why is one tripod being picked over another? What would make one mounting system better than others when it comes to QD plates? What specifications should you be looking at when considering a tripod purchase? Things like that, ready? Let’s get to it!

In Blog by Rich2 Comments

This week’s article is on necking down 6.5×47 Lapua brass. There’s been a good bit of interest in this caliber in general. Some folks are put off by the idea of working with a Wildcat cartridge. It typically means there is some extra work to do in order to have brass ready to go for that caliber. I’m here to tell you that the brass preparation with 6×47 Lapua is exceedingly simple and pretty quick to perform. I’ll show you just how fast you can do it as well as describe the steps involved along with any that may come later in the process. Ready? Let’s get started!

Evolution of Tripod Shooting PT1

In Blog by Rich12 Comments

This week’s article is on the evolution of tripod shooting! I thought over the next few months we would take a similar approach in another multi part series on tripod shooting. Specifically, where it came from and how it’s been evolving. We’re right in the middle of what appears to be a Quantum Leap (remember that show?) in tripod shooting technology. For the longest time guys would just grab a regular camera tripod and cook up a homemade rifle rest from a piece of PVC tubing and go to work. As positional shooting has become more popular, in large part to the Precision Rifle Series, tripod shooting itself is evolving! That’s the focus of this series of articles, the evolution of tripod shooting!

In Blog by Rich0 Comments

This week we’re going to be discussing Rite in the Rain paper and the benefits of using it over traditional paper when you’re out shooting!

Whether or not it’s something you want to invest in will be up to you! For now let’s dive into more information about it and you can decide for yourself!
