Extreme Long Range
A BEGINNER- AND INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL
GUIDE FOR THE ONE MILE +
PRECISION RIFLE SHOOTER
by Shepard Humphries & Scott Austin
We began our Nomad Rifleman’s Extended Extreme Long Range Shooting Fun book many years ago as a supplement to live training with Nomad Rifleman clients.
We provided earlier versions as a booklet. Recipients were very complimentary of the booklet, so we decided to write a full book, the kind with binding and everything.
As with our live teaching style, our goal is not to impress you with how much we know. (If we ever wind up knowing much, we might change our tactic). In our extreme long range shooting book we cover equipment selection, fundamentals of extended long range shooting, ballistics, reloading, optics reviews, what is important and more importantly; what isn’t worth worrying about.
As of June 2021, the furthest shot we have helped a Nomad Rifleman client hit is 5,385 yards (3.06 miles).
We are purposefully making the book less “scientific” and instead our focus is on fun. We believe in the 80 – 20 rule and simplicity, and while writing this book, we keep starting sections of more technical stuff, then we step back and realize that a person that has less than 2,000 rounds through a long range rifle does not REALLY need to know that stuff.
This book is not for dummies, it is written for the above average Joe, but not the post doctorate engineer that likes being technically correct to the 37th decimal point and hates hugs. The engineer trouble-seeker will find many technical omissions and “rounding ups” that will drive him nuts.
This book is not for 1,000 yard competition paper shooters, military snipers, law enforcement marksmen or big game hunters.
Yes, these folks would likely benefit from it, but our focus is on recreational shooting way beyond 1,000 yards. Try Nomad Rifleman’s Extreme Long Range Shooting Fun and let us know what you think.
