Precision Shooting – Improve Your Rifle Accuracy

Do You NEED To Improve Your Accuracy?

Need Help?
If you’ve ever been out varmint hunting (or worse yet, deer or elk hunting) and experienced the frustration of missing because you haven’t learned to sight in your rifle, then read this!


If you own a rifle, you should be able to hit what you aim at! More so, you should hit exactly where you aim every time you squeeze the trigger. Accuracy or the ability to hit your target at any range and under any condition is dependent upon many variables:

  • Before you can have rifle accuracy, you must first have Rifle Precision!
  • Rifle Precision is the ability to consistently shoot the same way providing tight shot groups every time.
  • Tighter rifle shot groups will allow more accurate adjustments to your rifle sights as you zero in your rifle at any range.
  • I want to reinforce the fundamentals of consistency which are the Fundamentals of Marksmanship!
Sample Target

Do your Shot Groups look like A, B, C or D?
