There's a lot of good information available on long range shooting which explains how to correct trajectories for drop, wind deflection, etc. This book takes it a step further and discusses how various uncertainties affect your hit percentage.
The book is broken into 3 parts: Precision, Accuracy, and WEZ analysis.
Part 1 focuses on Precision, which explores how hit percentage is affected by variables affecting group size, including:
Part 2 focuses on Accuracy, which is how well the group is centered around the aim point. Chapters in the Accuracy section include:
Part 3 focuses on Weapon Employment Zone (WEZ) analysis including:
An in depth look at the sport of Air Rifle shooting, this book is exclusively concerned with 10 metre shooting. Air rifle 3-positions and shooting with a support are also dealt with.
Contains all that is special about air rifles in a comprehensive format including detailed looks at the fundamentals such as stance, aiming and positions.
This new edition of Bryan Litz's comprehensive volume on long-range ballistics includes two additional chapters covering extended long-range shooting and monolithic bullets. Nearly every other chapter has been updated; the chapter on wind deflection has almost doubled in size. Bryan provides experimentally determined ballistic coefficient data for over 235 long-range bullets. Bryan thoroughly explains the fundamentals of long range ballistics to help anyone wishing to become an accomplished long-range shooter.
Topics covered include ballistic coefficients, gravity drop, wind deflection, uphill/ downhill shooting, the Coriolis Effect, spin drift, effective sight use, and bullet stability, with performance analysis for hunters, competitive shooters, and tactical/lethality type shooting, all in a reader-friendly writing style so you can develop the necessary tools to calculate precise trajectories for long-range shooting.

Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting is a book series by Bryan Litz which 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.
Nosler's 7th edition reloading manual provides clear and concise instructions on reloading with information on classic catridges as well as new calibers.
The Nosler reloading guide is detailed and provide step by step instructions, making it clear enough for even novice beginners.
Applied Ballistics Instructional 3-DVD Set
In this instructional DVD set, champion shooter and Ballistician, Bryan Litz explains and demonstrates the science of external ballistics for use in long range shooting.
Bryan Litz is a well-known expert in the field of external ballistics. His books: Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting and Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting are considered required reading for serious long range shooters; both recreational and professional.
Using layman terms, Bryan explains the complex science behind putting rounds on target at long range. After explaining the material in a classroom setting, he takes to the field to demonstrate the principles in live fire.

One Mile Shooting
By L. Miller & K Cunningham
There is one thing that all marksmen—whether they're soldiers, cops, hunters, or competitive shooters—agree on: only hits count.
Depending on your role, it may be more important to be faster or it may be more important to be precise, but in the end it's the shooter who can achieve perfect shots on demand, all the time, who wins.
To fire a perfect shot, you need to bring together a mix of very specific conditions into that single moment when the trigger breaks. Some of the required conditions are technical, some of them are physical, but the requirements that are most important—and most elusive—are the mental skills. Once you have mastered the mental skills required to fire the perfect shot, you will find they're the same for any gun, any time, anywhere.
Secrets of Mental Marksmanship is a detailed guide to developing conscious and subconscious powers that will elevate your marksmanship practice, training, and performance to the level of expert shooters. Keith Cunningham and Linda Miller—both champion shooters and master instructors, with decades of experience in the field and on the range—provide a set of tools that can be used to acquire and access the mental skills needed to perform to the best of your ability. True stories from military and law-enforcement professionals, seasoned hunters, and world-class competitors illustrate key points about marksmanship in the field, on the range, and on the streets. By mastering the tools, skills, and lessons outlined in this book, you will be able to get into "the zone" and produce the perfect shot under pressure and on demand, whenever you look through the sights of a gun.
Sweet's score book features 64 grouping charts with squares for aid in centralising your shots and ensure accurate plotting.
This handy book also features wind tables, target dimensions and adjustments, conversion tables and easy to follow directions.

In this frank and detailed history of the development of the rifle club movement and its national councils, historian Andrew Kilsby has unravelled the realist behind the traditional ties through wat and peace between the movement and Australia's defence.
With their origins deep in Volunteer and Militia soldiering, the first colonial rifle associations were established from 2860, and the first national council in 1888, making it the oldest national sporting body in Australia. This was a paradox which bedevilled the movement from the beginning - was it in fact an adjunct to Australia's defence or were rifle club men simply "pothunters', enjoying their pastime at Government expense? Even though formal ties with the military were severed in 1959, Defence representatives remained engaged with the NRAA Council until well into the 1970's. How the rifle club movement, through its national council, met the challenges of its first 100 years, is the subject of this fascinating history.
This 180 page book walks you through each step of using your riflescope to its maximum potential. It is intended for shooters of all levels of experience and designed to bring your shooting skills to a new level. Complete with illustrations and full descriptions, this book uses real world examples and speaks in a language every shooter will understand and appreciate.

The science of ballistics has a long history and starts with one question: How does a projectile move through the air? Even before physicists worked that one out, military engineers had been tinkering with ballistic devices for centuries. The trebuchet of the Middle Ages has given way to rocket power, and the science of ballistics has evolved to match the technology. Mark Denny’s survey covers this dynamic subject from prehistory to the weapons of tomorrow.
Taking the bang-whiz-thud approach, Denny first talks about internal ballistics—Bang!—from before gunpowder to the development of modern firearms. External ballistics—Whiz!—are next, with discussions about short- and long-range trajectories. Denny’s lesson ends with a Thud!—an explanation of terminal ballistics.
Throughout, Denny conveys applicable physics principles in a way that will appeal to technology buffs and ballistics enthusiasts alike. His fun and factual explanations are free of complicated equations; notes cover the key aspects of ballistics physics for the more technically inclined.
Denny has perfected this engaging balance of science and story. For study or hobby, Their Arrows Will Darken the Sun is an entertaining guide to the world of ballistics.
