1. Gather Data
"The most vital part of being on the range isn't to shoot however to gather information on the rifle. We record information with each shot, so we realize what our weapon will do under each condition. We will then utilize this DOPE (Data Of Previous Engagements) book as a kind of perspective before each shot."
2. Shoot Dirty
"Riflemen like to shoot grimy weapons. At the end of the day, we won't spotless our rifles for 200 to 300 rounds. Leave that rifle grimy for the entire season!"
3. Crush on the Pause
"I get a kick out of the chance to shoot on the respiratory delay on the down breath. I take three full breaths. When I let all my let some circulation into on that last breathe out, that 1-to 3-second delay is the cash spot where I need to take my shot."
"Clearly you need to have a moderate, unfaltering crush to the back until your shot breaks. Surely don't yank. Yet, what numerous don't understand is that complete is everything. Once the shot breaks, proceed with that crush to the back and afterward discharge the trigger gradually to the front."
5. Zero to a Higher Standard
"A great deal of seekers make due with a firearm that is not exactly focused. Expert sharpshooters don't consider a weapon focused until the point when we get three back to back rounds inside a 1-inch square at 100 yards. Try not to agree to less."
6. Escape Sight
"Our essential part on the war zone is observation and insight gathering. Keeping in mind the end goal to do this, we need to go to the outrageous with camo. We utilize high quality ghillie suits that join common vegetation from the conditions in which we work."

"Keep in mind, wind is never steady. The most imperative breeze thought for an expert sharpshooter is twist at 66% of the path to the objective. There can be numerous breeze bearings and speeds amongst you and an objective. You need to perceive these and make the correct changes."
8. Know Your Bullet
"We utilize 175-grain Sierra MatchKings, where the normal seeker will utilize some sort of ballistic-tip ammo. These projectiles aren't as exact, so you have to do some testing and locate the best slug for your gun."
9. Gain From the Kick
"On the off chance that you are shooting a .308, or something of practically identical force, the kick of the firearm will disclose to you what you are fouling up. Each time a marksman shoots, he needs the weapon to return straight into him. The degree should fall ideal back on target- - that implies your basics are great."
10. Dial It, Or Mil It?
"There are two approaches to take long shots. For speedy engagements, we utilize a 500-yard zero and reference the reticle for the hold over or hold under. Be that as it may, on the off chance that I need to take a 1,000-yard shot and I have time, I'll counsel my moron and dial in my 1,000-yard extend for a first-round hit."
