Building A Backcountry Rifle — Shoot Like A Sniper, Part 2 — Hunt Backcountry Podcast Episode 73

posted in: Podcast | 4

We are back for Part 2 with Ryan Cleckner!  (Listen to Part 1) In this episode, we answer the questions of: What are the easiest and cheapest improvements that can be made to an average rifle and scope package? What is the best process for barrel break-in? How do angles and shooting up/down inclines in the mountains affect accuracy? And MUCH more!

Ryan has graciously given us the opportunity to give away ten copies of his book: The Long Ranger Shooting Handbook. This book expands upon many of the topics that we discuss in this podcast series and is a must-read for anyone looking to improve their effectiveness with a rifle. To enter the giveaway, please visit ExoMountianGear.com/ShootingBook before May 31, 2017.

    Always great stuff with Ryan Cleckner. One thing to keep in mind when shooting at angles if you decide to do some quick math using the cosine of the angle, make sure your calculator is set to return the values in degrees and not radians.

    Hey guys, these episodes with Ryan were great and even though I am not a rifle hunter right now, I learned a great deal that will certainly have me changing some things. One tip from Ryan that I am incorporating into my bow shooting is to focus on the pin versus the target. Holy cow, the first time I did this I was flat out amazed at how much better my shots were. Really made a difference. I’m on my second round of listening to these episodes; there’s a lot of good info there. Thanks again.
