Bullet Jump: Is Less Always Better?

This landmark article shares new, primary research that Mark Gordon from Short Action Customs has compiled over the past 2 years. He tested a wide range of bullet jumps in several rifle/load configurations, and this post shares the analysis of that data. Mark used a similar approach to the Audette Ladder Test and OCW method, but the goal was to not find the most forgiving powder charge weight, but the most forgiving bullet jump. He wasn’t looking for the specific bullet jump that grouped the best, but the largest window of bullet jumps that provided a similar point of impact. That means the rifle would be more consistent from the start of the match to the end of it or could shoot a particular kind of match-grade factory ammo really well for a longer period of time. Mark’s findings may seem counter to conventional wisdom when it comes to bullet jump, but a few national-level precision rifle competitors also support the idea, which I highlight in this post as well.


  1. Where the heck can I subscribe to this magazine “precision rifle shooter”
    You’d think I could google it but nothing even comes up.
    What gives…

    • Well, James, I’ve thought the same thing. That magazine was called SNIPER for a while, and now that’s the new name. It’s a single issue, special edition magazine published by Guns & Ammo. I just keep an eye out for it on news stands around May/June every year. I wish you could subscribe to it, but I couldn’t find a way. It’s put together by Tom Beckstrand, so you might could find him on Facebook and see if there is a way to get it other than finding it on newsstands. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.
