Many of the readers of The Shooter’s Log have set up rifle with an optic, but did you set them up for success? Did the shot at distance drift because of the wind or your initial setup? In the following video overview, Bryan Litz gives an overview of setting up your rifle for long range.

Do you follow a particular regime when setting up a rifle? Do you have a tip for adjusting the buttstock, cheek weld, ensuring the reticle is zeroed to the target as well as being vertical? Share your answers in the comment section.
