About the Author
The authors have decades of experience as bullet designers, NRA marksmen and competition shooters and explain every aspect of long-range shooting in easy-to-understand terms. If you want to become the kind of shot that fellow shooters speak well of and envy, this book is right on target.
Warren Gabrilska is a manufacturing/finishing engineer, author, and entrepreneur whose major passion is shooting. He is an NRA-certified rifle and pistol instructor who holds sharpshooter classifications in ISU small-bore and air rifle and an expert classification in NRA high-power rifle competition. He competes inIPSC pistol and three-gun matches and Second Chance bowling pin competitions. Warren is the owner of Timber Beast Products, Inc., which makes custom long-range low-drag bullets for shooting competitors, hunters, and varminters.
Tony M. Noblitt is an operating engineer and jack of all trades. He is an avid varmint and big-game hunter, bullet designer, experimental shooter, and reloader. Tony has shot in NBRSA bench-rest matches, as well as trap, skeet, and sporting clays competitions. He was driven to write this book after finding that this type of material wasn't available when he first decided to go long range. He has the enviable privilege of having a 1,000-yard range right off his back patio. The ability to step out the patio door to the shooting bench and shoot on a whim has given him a great deal of practical experience of shooting long range. Both Warren and Tony are long-time voting members of the NRA

I was hoping for more information on accurizing techniques (barrel bedding, cryo treatment, moly coating, etc). Instead, the only real description of any use to anyone is how to use a boresight to mount a scope using Burris rings. If you don't want to use Burris rings and a Bushnell or Redfield boresighter, then you probably won't get much useful information from this book. At least, I didn't.
While there are some helpful hints sprinkled in the text, most are things a moderately experienced shooter would already know. Certainly anyone who is buying a book on long-range shooting (600 to 1200 yards) would already know most of the elementary information presented.
My recommendation? Save your money, or buy two other books for the same price.
