In the benchrest shooting community there have been two back-to-back rifle kaboom events in the past two week-ends, one at a shoot I just attended.
Luckily nobody was seriously injured. But these were potentially life-threatening events.
The names and details aren’t relevant; this could happen to any experienced shooter.
I wanted to post this today as a cautionary reminder for all of us, to stay focused when handloading ammunition, and when behind the trigger.
Hey sharpshooters, here’s a “how to” video on benchrest rifle shooting—mastering the precision rifle, close up!

—that’s under two-tenths inch Minute of Angle.
Watch the video—now that’s how it’s done!

The language we use to describe wind conditions is easy to understand, but it’s not intuitive. I remember wondering whether a 3 o’clock wind was coming from or blowing towards 3 o’clock. So here’s an overview of the technical jargon and some ninja tips on reading the wind—let’s get started so we can all get on the same footing.
