In his original version of Long-Range Precision Rifle, U.S. Army sniper and avid precision rifle and long-range rifle shooter, competitor, and enthusiast Anthony Cirincione II put extreme accuracy with a precision rifle within the reach of any shooter. His instruction was based on 26 months of combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan and his training of squad-designated marksmen for his battalion. His precision-shooting book proved to be an instant best-seller. In this expanded edition, Cirincione adds five new sections: "External Ballistic Truing." Although he briefly detailed the process of external ballistic truing in the first edition, given the level of importance to midrange and long-range target engagement, he believes that the process of truing deserves a detailed description. "Determining Fast and Correct Windage Adjustments or Holds."Cirincione covered the creation of a custom windage card for specific guns and pet loads in the first edition, but this added windage section shares his current process. The old way works fine, but his new method is faster and more precise, and doesn't require you to look at a card. As always, the process can be applied to any caliber you are using. "Midrange and Long-Range Target Engagement: Magneto Speed V3 Ballistic Chronograph vs. External Ballistic Truing." This section features a report Cirincione sent to the U.S. Army Sniper School outlining the testing of a barrel-mounted chronograph. The test pitted the device against his current method of external ballistic truing, given target engagements from 100 to 1,000 yards. It gives you a couple of different options to get on target at extended range. "How to Build a Switch-Barrel Rifle, and the Process of Swapping Barrels." As Cirincione has moved away from factory bolt-action rifles and into custom-built guns, he thought readers would appreciate information on how to build one. Not only that, but he also includes specific information on how to remove and add barrels of different calibers to that same stock and action. "Suppressed Subsonic Shooting." This section is about precision shot placement with subsonic ammo out to 400 yards. Long-Range Precision Rifle: Expanded Edition lays out the most up-to-date methods for getting the most out of whatever rifle you are using. After discussing rifle, ammunition and optic selection, Cirincione reveals his tried-and-true methods of gathering and recording data. He takes you step-by-step through the process of discovering how to make your rifle perform at its peak with every shot. You will also learn how to adjust for environmental factors and obstructions that lie between you and your target, and discover why handloading and building your own precision cartridges is an extra step well worth taking. "Anthony Cirincione was an amazing teacher while helping me get ready for sniper school.

"Anthony Cirincione was an amazing teacher while helping me get ready for sniper school. His knowledge and meticulous rifle setup techniques were instrumental to my success. As a U.S. Army Sniper School instructor, I have been able to pass on everything he taught me to students and further help the sniper community." –SSG Dustin Campbell, U.S. Army Sniper School, Ft. Benning, GA "This book is a great tool for anyone who is interested in long-range shooting and handloading for their rifle. It lays out a system that anyone can follow to successfully develop a precision rifle setup for hunting, target, or competition shooting. Stop being the guy who looks at your box of ammo for your drop and then uses "Kentucky windage," only to miss your prize animal or target. Be the guy who smoothly pulls the trigger at any distance with knowledge of where your bullet is going and confidence in a first-round hit."–Brandon Connell, civilian shooter, Memphis, TN This detailed guide puts extreme accuracy at long range with a precision rifle within the reach of any shooter. But what exactly is a precision rifle? Author Anthony Cirincione II defines it as a rifle that consistently prints 1.047 inches or smaller at 100 yards. If that's the kind of shooting that you think is beyond your capability, think again. A U.S. Army sniper and avid precision rifle and long-range rifle shooter, competitor, and enthusiast, Cirincione has 26 months' worth of combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, and has trained multiple groups of squad-designated marksmen for his battalion. In this book, he lays out an easily understood method for getting the most out of whatever rifle you are using. After discussing rifle, ammunition, and optic selection, he reveals his tried-and-true methods of gathering and recording data. He takes you step-by-step through the process of discovering how to make your rifle perform at its peak with every shot. In this book you will also learn how to adjust for environmental factors and obstructions that lie between you and your target, and discover why hand loading and building your own precision cartridges is an extra step well worth taking. Whether you are a civilian or in the military or law enforcement, all shooting sports using long guns become more rewarding and enjoyable when the shooter gains a useful understanding of the external ballistics of his rifle.

The Wind Book for Rifle Shooters contains straightforward guidance on the simple thought process they use to read the wind, the techniques and tactics they use to win matches, and the underlying skills that support both. Let these champions show you how to put together a simple wind-reading toolbox for calculating wind speed, direction, deflection, and drift. Then learn how to use these tools to read flags and mirage, record and interpret your observations, and time your shots to compensate for wind. Other topics covered include: Analyzing shot placement Recording and record keeping Confidence and following your hunches And much more!
