The Everyday Sniper Episode 138 Philip Velayo Fundamental Talk
Great Interview with Phil Velayo of Gunwerks, USMC Scout Sniper Instructor, Competition Shooter, and Fundamentalist. We breakdown rifle set up, talk a lot about stocks and your length of pull adjustment.
How the length of pull and rifle set up dictates so much how well we shoot. It goes from the back of the rifle to the scope, to the bolt and trigger. This is an important part of starting out with your precision rifle.
Lots and lots of knowledge bombs dropped on the listeners and some golden nuggets mixed in.
Thanks for listening, thanks for sharing, thanks for being a part of the Everyday Sniper Podcast.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 136 Bryan Litz and Emil Praslick Shot Show
Here is a short, but great interview with Bryan Litz of Applied Ballistics and Emil Praslick. They were over at the Lapua / Berger booth and we sit down with both of them to talk shop.
Great side note with Bryan regarding the fundamentals and the importance in execution. It's about the human factor more so than the latest software out there. Yes, software is important but the fundamentals are the foundation.
We get up to speed with the latest offerings from both Lapua and Berger and talk shop for a bit.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 133 Paul Philips 6k Shot Show Interview
We sat down with Paul Philips and his ELR Team including Mark Lonsdale and their FO Maurice to discuss the 6000-yard impact they had while doping their rifles.
ELR is quickly becoming one of the growing segments of precision rifle shooting. Paul and his Team are at the forefront of this movement and it's great to be able to talk to them about it.
The bullets in the title page are actually the bullets used and the one recovered from the site of the shot. So you can see just how little deformation takes place even hitting the steel target.
Thanks for listening, thanks for sharing and thanks for being a part of the Everyday Sniper Podcast.
