As long as we’re talking about Ashbury Precision Ordnance (APO) precision anti-materiel/sniper rifles and APO Riflecraft (APORC) shooting courses, we should probably mention that APO published an overarching press release on APO Riflecraft that DefenseReview (DR) recommends our readers peruse then they have a moment (see below). If you want to learn the art of long-range precision rifle shooting, the APO Rifllecraft courses are definitely worth your serious consideration, in our opinion. Anyway, here’s the press release:
