Episode 27.1 Bullet Trimming and Pointing - teaser

July 6, 2022

From the book: Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting Volume 2, Chapter 3 - Bullet Trimming and Pointing. Live fire testing shows effects on BC (average and uniformity) from pointing, trimming, pointing + trimming, sorting, etc.  This is not the most entertaining to listen to, but the content answers many common questions that precision shooters have.

July 6, 2022

From the book: Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting Volume 2, Chapter 2 - Angular Group Convergence.  Have you ever thought (or heard) that a rifle might be able to shoot smaller groups at a further distance?  What's going on there?  The Applied Ballistics team applies the tried and true scientific method to peel back the layers and reveal the nature of how groups grow with distance, and if group convergence is in fact possible.

Episode 22.1 Modern (aeroballistic) Drag Modeling - teaser

June 22, 2022

Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting - Volume 1, Chapter 13 covers Modern Drag Modeling.  In this episode, we discuss how the paradigm evolved from G1 BC's to G7 BC's and finally to Custom Drag Models (CDM's) and Personal Drag Models (PDM's).  We explain how the Applied Ballistics bullet data library is being built with Doppler Radar measurements and how shooters can benefit from it.  Anyone interested in hitting targets at long range can benefit from understanding this fundamental content.

Episode 21.1 Accounting for Secondary Effects (Spin Drift, Aerodynamic Jump, and Coriolis) - teaser

Episode 21.1 Accounting for Secondary Effects (Spin Drift, Aerodynamic Jump, and Coriolis) - teaser

June 15, 2022

This is Chapter 12 of Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting - Volume 1.  Secondary effects such as spindrift, aerodynamic jump, and Coriolis effect are calculated by ballistic solvers, but it helps to have some insight about how they arise, and under what circumstances you need to account for them.  The listener should have more confidence in their understanding and accounting of second-order effects after listening to this.
