Book Description

Nov. 1 1998
Comparatively few shooters ever learn the secrets of hitting tiny targets at long distances with the first round out of the barrel. Enter Tony M. Noblitt and Warren Garbilska's Dead On: The Long-Range Marksman's Guide to Extreme Accuracy.

This hands-on manual walks the shooter through every step required to become a true long-range marksman, from understanding minute-of-angle principles and selecting a rifle, caliber, and cartridge to mounting and zeroing a scope, estimating wind values, dealing with mirage, understanding bore sighting, selecting and using iron sights, shooting with a variety of slings, performing preventive maintenance on your rifle and using range finders. Also included is an extensive series of scope adjustment charts for a long list of rounds.

Product Description

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

First Sentence
To answer this question, we must first consider two factors: target size as it pertains to bullet trajectory and the capabilities of the marksman and his equipment. Read the first page

2.0 out of 5 stars If you want MOA tables, here they are! Nov. 26 1999
Format:Paperback
I was disappointed in this book. Half of it is tables with MOA scope adjustments for various bullets and ranges. (Pp 1-86 are chatty text, and pp 88-161 are MOA tables) These are essentially useless to most people because they would have to be modified for one's own rifle/bullet/scope combination.
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Agreeing with Mr. Sonnenberg Jan. 21 2000
Format:Paperback
I have to agree with Mr. Sonnenberg's review of this book. I think it's geared mainly for the beginner shooter. I also think it's over-priced since half the book consists of ballistic tables that I will never use. A serious shooter other than a beginner should already have their own ballistic charts for their rifles.

2.0 out of 5 stars Jim Sonnenberg's 99% right June 2 2004
Format:Paperback
Jim has (almost) hit the nail on the head - for the "not so experienced" long range shooter there are however one or two pearls contained in the text. Would I buy this again? maybe, but not at this price.
