I launched Bison Ballistics in January of 2011, with the goal of becoming a premier source of information for precision riflemen. The site's focus is on accurate rifles and the shooting sports that use them. Whether your game is High Power Rifle, Benchrest, Silhouette, or F Class, I think you'll find something of interest. Much of what you'll find here is technical in nature - I'm an engineer by training, so I can't really help myself. I Although the site was created mainly for my own learning and as a way to clarify my thoughts on various topics, it has been well received by shooters, and allowed me to interact with many of the readers. For that, I'm very grateful, as it's taught me a tremendous amount, and driven me to attempt to return the favor.
I've learned much about the science and art of precision shooting over the years, but there is more than one way to skin a cat, and I'm sure there are other ways to do some of the things I write about. I make every effort to pass on only accurate information, but the nature of some of the topics covered is often shrouded in mystery and obscured by incomplete information. And from time to time, I'm even just flat out wrong. So if you see something that doesn't quite look right, or that conflicts with your experience, please let me know. You can reach me at the email address below.
In June of 2018, Bison Ballistic transformed from a hobbyist blog into a custom bullet manufacturer with the development of the Claymore .308 caliber bullets. Going forward, my intent is to grow the company into a respected bullet source for discerning competitive rifleman. The rest of the site will still be there, but the focus is now squarely on producing the finest match bullets I can.

A former NASA engineer, Damon worked for several years on composite materials, mechanical design and structural dynamics at Goddard Space Flight Center on the Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Missions. He also has 10 years of experience as a software developer, and has developed a suite of ballistics design programs used by Bison Ballistics. At the range, you'll likely find Damon shooting High Power, F Class, or some informal Benchrest. He is a stong advocate for gun rights, individual liberty, and the shooting sports community he has grown to love.
