that the many new (and not so new) members here go to the Storm Tactical web-site and order the USMC SCOUT SNIPER PLATOON Field Book that they offer.
I have one for each weapon (both M1s and M14s) and have found the book to be a complete shooters school if one is trying to learn. The book is about all things other than position and weapon maintenance and specifically deals with accuracy and how to gain it and how to read wind, mirage, up hill ,down hill, ammo performance and how to use the book to record all things.
The book is field survivable and demonstrates a lot of the things one needs to know about shooting .308 weapons.
I make no claim to be anything other than a former Marine that needed to have record books and something to show me what I'm supposed to remember. You young fellows may have the ability to gain a proper position for firing, but it is terribly important to know how to do the rest. There are no benches in the field.........
