Handloading for Competition is a brand new book by the author and publisher of The Competitive AR15. It's a guide to "practical precision" in producing high-performance ammunition. Ten major sections and one hundred separate segments detail all aspects of developing and producing ammunition for High Power Rifle, Silhouette Rifle, or serious varminting. Tools, methods, and processes for sizing, seating, case preparation are examined. Fixing "primer problems" like pierces and blow outs (and what really causes them). Bullet selection, real world accuracy and ballistic performance, and proven (because they win) loads for all popular competitive cartridges, plus "both sides" of bullet coating. Testing and development have their own sections, and there's also a special Long Range chapter by Scott Medesha, U.S. Palma? Team member. This book is a very large collection of information, ideas, and essays on the production of high-performance ammunition for use in competition rifles. We promise you've never read a loading book before like this one!
This book details every nuance of realizing maximum ammunition performance, and finding out why if it's not working like it should. Unlike reloading manuals, Handloading for Competition discusses the integration of the loaded round into the shooting system (which includes the shooter). Confused? You won't be for long! Learn to make the right choices custom tailored to the unique needs of shooter, rifle, and course of fire.
Handloading For Competition has an extremely "readable" format. Just like The Competitive AR15, this book is designed for easy access and clear identification of each topic. Open the book to any spread and there's something there to enjoy, whether you've read everything preceding it or not. The unique format features a blend of fact and opinion, each presented separate from the other. We do our publications that way because we understand that not all experiences are shared, and that it's a big mistake to ever assume that what works for one will work the same for all. Within these pages, however, are answers!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Glen Zediker has worked professionally with some of the greatest shooters on the planet, as well as leading industry "insider" rifle builders, manufacturers, and proven authorities on gunsmithing, barrelmaking, parts design and manufacture, and handloading. And he does pretty well on his own: Glen is a card carrying High Master and earned that classification using an AR15 Service Rifle (and the information he put into this book). He's also had dozens of articles published in magazines like American Rifleman, Shooting Sports USA, and Precision Shooting. He also caught a snake once, big snake, and still talks about it. Won't shut up. Goes on and on. Okay. Yes, it was big. Yes, it could have bitten you. Okay?
