    This thread is an overview of the instructional books which are currently available from Applied Ballistics. All are written by Bryan Litz for the purpose of educating shooters on the science of accuracy.

    Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting - Second Edition
    [​IMG]
    This is the first book, and the reigning flagship of the Applied Ballistics library. It's basically a textbook which explains, in laymans terms, all of the elements of external ballistics. The book includes an appendix of measured performance data for 225 bullets. Note, this library is updated in a separate book called: Ballistic Performance of Rifle Bullets (read more about it below). Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting includes a CD with a ballistics solver for use on your PC.
    Here is the table of contents, and sample excerpt from Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting:

    Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting
    [​IMG]
    This book introduces the concept of Weapon Employment Zone (WEZ) analysis to small arms. Basically, WEZ analysis tells you what your hit percentage will be on a given target and uncertainty environment. Traditional ballistics can tell you your elevation and windage corrections for hitting a target, but WEZ analysis can tell you your chances of actually hitting a target given the real world uncertainties in: range, wind, rifle/shooter precision and muzzle velocity. The software program: "Applied Ballistics Analytics" was developed allows shooters to conduct their own WEZ analysis, like that described in Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting.
    Here's a sample excerpt from Accuracy and Precision for Long Range Shooting:

    Modern Advancements in Long Range Shooting - Volume 1
    [​IMG]
    The Modern Advancements series is planned as a series of Volumes which documents the ongoing live fire testing being conducted in the Applied Ballistics Laboratory. This first Volume presents the detailed results of testing conducted on the effects of twist rate. Learn how twist rate affects: Muzzle velocity, precision, BC for supersonic and transonic bullet flight, etc. In addition to presenting live fire ballistic test results, the Modern Advancements series also takes a look at industry trends and new developments that are enabling more successful long range shooting.

    Ballistic Performance of Rifle Bullets
    [​IMG]
    Ongoing live fire testing in the Applied Ballistics Laboratory has generated a great deal of data on small arms bullets. Originally, this data was contained in the Appendix of 'Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting'. However, as the body of information grew to many hundreds of bullets, it became clear that a new book was required to contain the most up-to-date library of experimentally measured bullet data ever compiled. Ballistic Performance of Rifle Bullets is a reference book with data on 400 bullets from .224 to .408 caliber. Future editions are planned to expand the range of calibers from .172 to .510, and more in between.
    Here's a sample of the book showing the table of contents where you can see all bullets contained in the book:
    http://appliedballisticsllc.com/BulletDataFiles/TOC3.pdf

    Here are some samples of the data that's provided for each of the 400 bullets:
    Hornady GMX .284 caliber 139 grain
    Berger .308 caliber 185 grain LRBT (Juggernaut)
    Berger .308 caliber 215 grain Hybrid
    Nosler .308 caliber 190 grain Long Range Accubond
    Barnes .308 caliber 200 grain LRXBT
    Hornady .338 caliber 285 grain BTHP Match
    Cutting Edge .375 caliber 352 grain MTAC
    Lehigh Defense .408 caliber 400 grain Match Solid

    Putting Rounds on Target with Bryan Litz (DVD)
    [​IMG]
    This 3-disk DVD set is a good instructional resource for long range shooters. In addition to covering material from the books, in this DVD series we take to the field and demonstrate exactly how to use ballsitic solvers and a knowledge of the fundamentals to actually put rounds on target. The focus is on the science, and assessing the accuracy of ballistic predictions. It's not magic, it's science.

    I really appreciate the latest resource. Wish I had had this coupon code when I ordered it.

    I was really hoping for the Barnes 168 LRX 7mm, but it's missing. How often will this be updated? Annually?

    Where can I get the WEZ software, so I can put my variables for my loads and see the results?

    I sure want to attend one of the Applied Ballistic seminars, but living abroad it is a little harder for me to get there.

    I do have some of the of Litz books and the CD Putting Rounds on Target, that I bought or got as prize table at the F-Class Nationals 2015 and 2016 (thank you to support the F-Class Nationals) and saw no mention where to get WEZ software.
    Also, I failed to find the WEZ software anywhere in Applied Ballistic webpage.

    Could you direct me on a link to WEZ software in AB webpage?

    Are there plans for a native Mac product?

    Along side the questions about native products how about the chance that you make this available to Linux users. I would be willing to use a terminal program without the drop-down menus and graphics. I have run into a difficult section on my own software (version three) which is my first attempt at going to six degrees of freedom in ballistics.

    I bought these books, one at a time, last year. I'm 67, sure wish I had had this knowledge available back when I was about 45 years younger.
    I'm signed up for the May Seminar in SLC. I just wish I could videotape the entire thing and take it home with me.
    :) this is me, Ear to Ear!
