Long Range Shooting Solutions

American Hunter's gear spotlight: All the stuff you want.

1. Forget taping a scroll of numbers on your stock, memorizing ballistic tables or lugging a computer to the beanfield; just punch a button on the NRA Field Ops Watch and instantly calculate your bullet’s drop using state-of-the-art ballistic software. The watch also has a digital compass, and, as a bonus, it keeps time. ($200; 888-607-6007; www.nrastore.com)


2. Perhaps the cushy Shooting Mat is overkill for hunting, but it sure can save your elbows and knees during rifle practice—or your back during a siesta. It folds up, backpacks, and stores spare cartridges. ($129; 877-732-2303; www.uspeacekeeper.com)


3. Everyone wants custom earplugs, but no one wants to pay custom prices. Save your hearing and your money with these mold-it-yourself Custom Molded Earplugs. ($14; 877-723-4267; www.radians.com)

5. You can either lick your finger and thrust it skyward, noting minute changes in wind currents, speed and direction, or you can simply consult the wonderful Wind Wizard before taking a long-range shot. ($39; 573-445-9200; www.caldwellshooting.com)


6. Older eyes use scopes and eyeglasses to see objects afar, but what about your ballistics data and rear sight that are a-near? NRA’s G3 Safety Readers offer eye protection and bifocals in one unit. ($20; 888-607-6007; www.nrastore.com)


7. One key to long-range shooting is using a solid rest. The Mini Gorilla Bag is portable and negates your most rock-solid excuse for missing. ($70; 800-635-7656; www.shootersridge.com)


8. Remington M700 XCR Compact Tactical rifle ($1,407; 800-243-9700; www.remington.com)


9. Black Hills Gold/Barnes TSX ammo ($38; 605-348-5150; www.black-hills.com)


10. Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5x-16x-42mm DOA riflescope ($749; 800-403-3537; www.bushnell.com)
