if you are a hunter then hunting gun will be your one of the must have hunting equipment. The most important prerequisite for achieving the optimum target effect of a rifle floor is the correct meeting place. In order to hit the deadly hit zone of an animal, the shot precision is of paramount importance.
The precision of a rifle shot is determined by several factors:
Matching weapon and ammunition
First, the bushing and the cartridge used must provide as small a spread as possible. Every hunter knows that not all cartridges can shoot from his gun exactly. We should try with which cartridges our rifle scatters the least.
Of course, hunting hunches differ in terms of their precision because of their design. An optimized running bedding in the system, as well as the correct running length, which must match the cartridge, also make an important contribution to the optimal use of the energy of the powder. The machining of the runout is of particular importance. Mufflers can improve precision, but also deteriorate.
The ammunition should always fit into our rifle, so shoot as small as possible. This is, of course, particularly important for long distances, while the forest hunter will tolerate somewhat larger hurdles. The claim of mountain hunters is considerably higher. We reach today with an optimal rifle ammunition combination scattering around 300 meters of about 5 centimeters.
Rifle and ammunition manufacturers optimize all internal ballistic requirements for the highest possible precision. In this respect, moderate loads with suitable powder varieties have proved to be particularly beneficial. You can fairly safely assume that a cartridge does not provide good precision that will allow the barrel of your rifle to rise 30 cm or more from the pad. With the urge to produce as fast as possible cartridges, some manufacturers exaggerate the precision. Of course, lightweight tipping bushes are more sensitive here than heavy repeaters. Thicker barrels may bring more peace and precision, but the old principle is that every extreme is more harm than good, just as far as precision is concerned.
Premium producers for hunting ammunition, who mainly develop their own projectiles, offer the highest possible standard, because they are already in the development all possibilities for the optimization of the internal ballistics up to the desired goal. Anyone who has decades of experience in this and is equipped accordingly, can also develop premium cartridges with premium vaults from other manufacturers.
Anyone who constantly changes his ammunition does not have to wonder about the fact that his scattering is getting bigger and bigger. The few runs may change the ammunition. One should at least clean well in the middle, after using copper shells mechanically with steel wool and chemically with appropriate running cleaners. Then the rifle has to be shot again.
For the mountain hunts, pro-shot at 200 and 300 meters are always recommended, since not every ammunition shoots at the same distance as at 100 meters.
The so-called outside ballistics, so the flight of the projectile, we hunts little influence. However, we can make sure that it shoots as precisely as possible when selecting the ammunition.
A completely underestimated problem for the wide shot is the wind deviation: we can not measure or predict the wind in the whole shooting range. Especially in the mountains there is a lot of air turbulence. Rapid caliber-to-shot combinations reduce wind deviations, but are not always more precise than more moderate combinations. In the meantime, we are able to reach our goal with several shots. We want to hit an animal right with the first shot, so do not make shooting exercises on living animals.
On the stalk in forest and field reeds, such target sticks are optimal when no suitable tree is available for painting. Here, the front and rear supports offer the highest possible shot precision.
It is clear to us that far more shots must be practiced than near shots from a well-furnished pulpit. For the improvement of the shot precision on movement hunts only the training in the shooting cinema helps.
