Long range shooting in the United States is as old as this country is young. Shooters have always had a fascination with shooting at distance, whether they are plinkers, competitive shooters, or hunters. The ability to place rifle bullets in the same hole of a target or kill an animal quickly is a goal to which we all aspire. In recent years the interest in tactical precision rifles has increased, with many factory and custom rifle makers plying their art producing rifles that can easily outperform the ability of many shooters. Expert Robert A. Sadowski proves to be a masterful instructor on all aspects related to precision shooting in the Shooter’s Bible Guide to Tactical Firearms.
