Links and resources
Expanding on my precision rifle resource post – here is a permanent, expanding page of links that I find useful.
Blogs and youtube
- 8541 Tactical – This is where it started for me with precision rifle; his youtube series on PR on a budget got me going with the tools that I had at the moment – a Remington 700.
- The Precision Rifle Blog – Cal has a very good site with excellent data-driven articles. When I was digging more and more into ballistics, this is a site I kept cross-referencing
- Accuracy Tech – I have found some good articles here on reloading and shooting technique
- RifleTalk – Some local content here – lots of great reviews on gear and a no-nonsesnse approach to shooting
- Reddit Longrange – A good community of people willing to talk and help.
- 6mmBR – Good reviews of gear
- Accurate Shooter – A great resource for all sorts of calibers, gear and tools. Very well thought-out articles.
- SnipersHide – This used to be excellent, but was bought out by a larger company – however the archives are still searchable and there is a wealth of information
- The Firearm Blog – More of a general gun and gear website, not geared to PR
- National Shooting Sports Foundation – Really excellent learning here for the basics – Ryan Cleckner, approaches the basics in an easy to understand way
- Hunting Gear Guy – Local gear review. Gives good unbiased reviews of rifles and gear.
