As precision shooters, we are looking to achieve the highest levels of downrange accuracy at any distance from both our firearm and projectile. But, the most important aspect of downrange performance goes beyond just the caliber of our rifle and lies on selecting the proper bullet. Bullets make the ammo and they are THE crucial component.

There are dozens of bullets on the market that claim to deliver the upmost in performance. Match grade performance. But what does that really mean and how do we quantify bullet performance?

In the latest episode of Pursue The Wild, Tips From The Wild, Kristy Titus explains why she chooses Hornady Ammunition and important considerations when selecting a bullet- ballistic coefficient (BC), bullet weight, barrel twist rate, velocity and more. Let selecting a bullet be the easiest thing you do to extract the maximum amount of repeatable accuracy from your precision rifle.

The Future of Hunting...

Full Draw Film Tour- Moments

In the Mid-West as the bucks begin scouring the woods with their noses low searching for ready does as hunters hit the stand anticipating their chance at a rutting buck. No two sits are the same, and most will wait a lifetime for the incredible events that unfold on this Missouri archery hunt.  These are the moments that hunters live for. As a filmmaker, I am beyond excited to be presenting at this year's Full Draw Film Tour. 

PRS Carolina Winter Shootout

Day 1 of The Precision Rifle Series Carolina Winter Shootout is in the books. I impacted 47% of the targets. My goal was 50%. So there is room to come up in the average for day two.  I made a few mistakes that cost me points and a few stages that I simply lacked experience engaging. Super fun day!!! 

Finished out the Precision Rifle Series Carolina Winter Shootout just missing my goal of 50% hits with 48% hit. I came up a percent on impacts for day 2 with 15 seconds less per stage. So that’s a vast improvement. I finished out 77th out of 110 shooters. I’m going home to do some training and get ready for next months match. 

JC Steel Tillamook Precision Rifle Match

We got poured on at the JC Steel Tillamook Precision Rifle Match but everyone was smiling because we were burning down the range. This was my second match of the year and I’m fairly pleased with my shooting. 47 hits out of 86 targets. No one cleaned the course. I was roughly 20 points off from the top score and finished out in 16th place. I’ll gladly take that. Thank you Jake Vibbert for putting on a great match with a great team of people.

NWPRL Eatonville WA Match

February 3rd was my first NWPRL Points Match. It was a great match with awesome people! Everyone was super welcoming to the series. I stepped up to the match not having trained since my last match in July of 2017 so this one was great to get back behind the gun and have some fun. I shot my Ruger Precision Rifle chambered in 6mm Creedmoor topped with a Swarovski Optik Hunting X5 burning Hornady 108 grain ELD match ammo. The series of stages took us from 250-600 yard shots. I finished 36th out of 68 total shooters. It was a great day! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again soon at the next match.
