Point of Impact

Take the time to shoot at targets at 3, 5, 10, 15, and 25 yards away when shooting your handgun. You’ll have a better understanding of the point of impact as you record the grouping of the rounds. A rifle, equipped with one with high-mounted optics like an AR15 particularly, should be shot at ranges between 10 and 200 yards away. The point of impact at near point-blank ranges can help the shooter spot the difference, and further out.
Right Ammo for Long Range Shooting
The replenishment of spent ammunition is one of the biggest ongoing expenses a shooter has. A gun should last forever with proper care and maintenance, but the real ongoing expense is the ammo. Invest in plenty of practice ammo, if your budget doesn’t allow both ammo and the latest in gadget add-ons to your gun. If you are just targeting paper, do not opt for the high-tech ammunition, it is a waste. For now, shoot the same weight bullet you’ll eventually use in your weapon during hunting season or for self-defense.
