Series: Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting: Volume I (Book 1)
Hardcover: 339 pages
Publisher: Applied Ballistics LLC; 1st edition (2014)
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.
