Consistent Frequency Improves Shooter Performance

In Blog by RichLeave a Comment

Maybe a confusing title, but I think you’ll understand what I mean when I say consistent frequency improves shooter performance by the end of the article. In essence I’m highlighting what we already know. Shooting is a perishable skill. A certain level of shooter performance and proficiency is attainable. That is to say that once you learn how to do some things you won’t forget. So you will never go back to square one. However, how good you are at the skill sets you’ve attained is in flux. This article is about recognizing that skill falloff and some ways to prevent it.

Accuracy Expectations at Varied Ranges

In Blog by Rich4 Comments

One thing I see people asking about on a regular basis is what kind of accuracy expectations they should have at varied ranges. It’s not an unreasonable question and especially with newer shooters, it happens to be on the forefront of people’s minds as they delve into Precision Rifle Shooting. Basically people want to know what their accuracy expectations should be. Is just hitting the target sufficient? Or should they be looking for more than that? If you can shoot a 1 Minute of Angle group at 100 yards, what kind of accuracy expectations should you have at 500 yards? Or 1000? This is the topic we’re going to be tackling in this article and hopefully that will give people a better idea of how they are performing and whether or not more improvement or instruction is warranted!

Interesting statement isn’t it? Spotting Scopes Make Better Shooters! It’s a true statement believe it or not. When you read articles written about precision shooting the focus is almost entirely upon the shooter, the act of shooting, or how to shoot more accurately. Why so little attention granted to the role of Spotter? Partly because it’s a less sexy job than shooter. Partly because if you are shooting correctly, you don’t need a spotter. However, that isn’t to say that taking on the role of Spotter is useless. Or that there’s no place in the modern precision markman’s toolkit for a spotting scope. This article is going to look at some of the benefits to owning a quality spotting scope and actually performing in the role of Spotter!
