Long range shooting requires a combination of the right equipment, preparation and mathematical know how. So Jim and Trav have assembled a crack shot team and they’re hoping to leave you with the right skills, gear and mindset that you’ll need to become a better long range shooter and hunter by the end of this week’s Revolution.
Ruger Firearms – Mark Gurney
Long range shooting begins and ends with the rifle you choose. While many rifles may have the capability to go the distance, that doesn’t mean they have the ability to produce the precise accurate shots needed in long range hunting. Ruger’s Mark Gurney hits up The Revolution this week to talk about Ruger‘s line of rifles and what he recommends for long distance shooting.
Federal Premium Ammunition – Tim Brandt
After you choose your long distance rifle, the next thing you need to consider is ammunition. What cartridge will you need to keep the velocity, resist the wind and maintain accuracy at such long distances? Federal Premium Ammunition‘s Tim Brandt joins the conversation and talks about the different options available for long distance shooting and what will best suit your needs.
