Long Distance Shooting | Pushing 1255 Yards

Our friends at Gun Carrier have a weekly show called Everything Guns, hosted by competitive shooter Amy Jane. In the latest episode, Amy takes a trip to the desert to put her shooting skills to the test as her friend Kevin helps her shoot at 1255 yards with an average hunting rifle.

As Amy Jane herself could tell you, even an experienced shooter has room to improve. In this case, Amy tries to beat her personal best in distance shooting with the help of distance shooter Kevin, and the Applied Ballistics cell phone app.

Distance shooting requires precision that can only come from calculating elements such as wind speed, barometric pressure, etc. The Applied Ballistics app helps you calculate these factors quickly and accurately, and apply them to your shooting for optimal precision, distance and accuracy.
