Applied Ballistics series by Brian litz. Best books I have read on the subject. Time well spent.

Although I haven't read her books, I would take a chance on the musing of Nancy Tompkins. Her and her two girls are top of the world class shooters. Good genes I guess.

If you are looking for more formal competition books, check out zediker publishing. Everything you wanted to know about service rifle shooting. Zediker also publishes books by David Tubb. Excellent books on formal high power rifle competition.

Great books by these guys, but high power rifle just isn't my cup of tea.

Applied ballistics is one of the most well written and detailed book on long range shooting I have seen. Even an old seasoned LR shooter will pick up something.

This and the books by Litz are some of the best reads out there. These are on shooting while Litz's are more on the technical side of the ballistics.
