    Might wanna find time to read since its a pretty damn long read. It's essentially about how to get the best accuracy out of a rifle.

    Cliffs and if your nutty about shooting like I am it is worth the read.

    Benchrest guys shoot in a 300+ yard warehouse with perfect shooting conditions. All enviromental factors such as wind, heat mirage, gas from the barrel, everything are eliminated. Bench rest guys shoot some amazing 5 shot one hole groups measure .1 Otherwise known as zero groups at 100 yards.

    The there is a shit ton of discussion of the various stuff they learned there about powder, case tuning, calibers, etc. The stuff on case tuning is pretty good if your a reloader. Way to anal for what I do with rifle but interesting stuff to read.

    interesting read, but as yar said, kinda pointless outside that warehouse. fuckers must be rich as fuck and have absolutely nothing else to do with their time.

    No actually it made some real good points about mechanical accuracy which was the whole point of the wall of text. If your interested in mechanical accuracy the article is incredible. Is it real shooting I would say no, because real shooting is about overcoming conditions and enviroment. In real shooting you don't shoot off of bags, you actualy shoulder and get a cheek weld on the rifle. Regardless it was a great read. I read it twice.

    The part about sleeping on the floor on cardboard and the extent of the bench and bullet stop. Amazing. I'm actually motivated to go prep 223 brass which is something I've been putting off until I read this article.

    OK off to prep brass.

    The only part of the article that made me go :wtc:, is when the dude admitted they mostly shot at 100 yards. If I had a 300 yard perfect condtition enviroment like that I would use the full distance. After somebody got all goofy about their zero moa rifle I would say "Ok bitches, backing shit up"

    maybe they didnt back it up because it would be more difficult to zero in on the exact same point from farther away

    They were using 30x scopes. They could probably read the numbers on the target.
