Applied Ballistics For Long Range Shooting 3rd Edition

Exterior ballistics is a very mature science. Unfortunately, most shooters have not been able to take full advantage of this field of knowledge because it’s always been described in a highly technical language.
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.

Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting is the flagship title of our technical library. New for the third edition is content on Weapon Employment Zone (WEZ) analysis. WEZ analysis is the study of hit percentage, and how it’s affected by the uncertainties in your environment. Existing academic material is augmented with modern experimental findings. Finally, the third edition includes the most updated version of the ballistic software on CD. The third edition of this title does not include the library of bullet data. That library has outgrown an appendix, and now exists as a separate reference book: Ballistic Performance of Rifle Bullets.

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.

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.

A few chapters include:
  • The Ballistic Coefficient 
  • Wind Deflection 
  • Gyroscopic (spin) drift 
  • The Coriolis Effect 
  • Using Ballistics Programs 
  • Getting Control of Sights 
  • Bullet Stability 
  • Extended Long Range Shooting 

Please note, we have limited stock on the 2nd edition book.
