    I'm looking to get a handy book on rifle marksmanship, particularly one that focuses on longer-range stuff? Anyone have recommendations?

    "Prone and Long-Range Rifle Shooting" by Nancy Tompkins is good reading.

    A rifleman went to war - Herbert W. McBride

    wait - i posted without clearly reading the op, this book is written about the first world war, good basics but technique and equipment has evolved.

    +1 on Nancy Tompkins, especially for competitive shooting.

    I found a pdf version of the sniper manual and am printing it tomorrow. The printers I use have 3 holes punched in them. I am going to toss this straight into a binder. Looks like a lot of future reading.

    While it may not be the best instructional book out there, "The Art of the Rifle" by Jeff Cooper deserves a mention here.
