Relevant LR information
Thanks Ryan for a very helpful and informative podcast discussing LR related topics.
NS (former 2/75)
This podcast is very informative!
Looking forward to future episodes!
VERY informative and helpful
This podcast and his book are tremendous assests for shooters new to long range shooting. Being very green myself, I really like how he takes topics that could easily overwhelm new shooters and breaks them down into the important parts we need to know to be successful while still letting us know there is more out there to study and learn when we are ready.
Keep up the great work Ryan!
