sponsor advertising value

We guarantee 1,000,000 impressions per year to each 468×60 banner advertiser, who pays $999 per year. A one-year contract has a CPM (Cost Per Thousand) of just $1.00, a great value for targeted advertising. And we normally OVER-deliver on banner impressions, reducing your net CPM on flat-rate contracts.

Another shooting website charges $250 per MONTH for roughly 45,000 impressions per month on a 1-year contract. Plus that website charges a $250.00 “Set-Up” fee. We charge no set-up fee, we guarantee over 83,000 impressions per month, and no
1-year contract is required. Including their Set-Up Fee, six months of advertising with our competitor costs $1750 vs. $499.50 (for twice the impressions) with AccurateShooter.com!


PAYMENT METHOD
You can pay by check, PayPal, or Mastercard and Visa. Short term placements are billed within two weeks of campaign start. Annual contracts are normally billed twice a year. No refunds after ads commence running. In some cases, we can accept product in trade.

ARTWORK Requirements
Just email your banner art to Mailbox@6mmBR.com. Maximum file size is 50kb for 468×60, 100kb for 300×250 or 728×90 (Call for other sizes). We can display GIF, JPEG, PNG, and Flash files. Flash ads work great, produce a higher response rate, and can hold interactive (clickable) elements within the banner. If you don’t have artwork, for $75.00 we can create a GIF or JPEG banner for you. Here are ads we built for Baer Custom Rifles, MT Guns, and Shadetree Engineering.

Pat Reagin, PMA Tool LLC
I know you’ve heard this from most if not all of your advertisers, but Accurateshooter.com is really the best place to advertise for the precision shooting crowd. By no means am I encouraging you to raise your rates, but your rates are more than reasonable, especially considering the results.

Eric Stecker, Berger Bullets
You have one of the best shooting-related websites around. We are committed to working with AccurateShooter.com as a sponsor. The people who visit your site are real shooters who demand accuracy–and those are the people who buy Berger bullets.

Krieger Barrels
AccurateShooter.com is now the premier precision shooting site on the web. This site is read and respected by the people who buy our barrels.

Marsha Williams, Russ Haydon’s Shooters’ Supply
Another big thank you for devising a very successful closing campaign for our business. It has gone so smoothly. Your expertise is spot on.

Preston Pritchett, Surgeon Rifles, Inc.
This is the Best Bang for the Buck of anything we do as far as advertising goes.

Ray Bowman, Precision Rifle Sales
My ad on AccurateShooter.com is making me money — with sales in Australia, the UK, Europe, you name it. This [728x90] ad is the best business move I’ve made this year, the best money I’ve spent this year.

Cory Dickerson, STM (Stainless Tumbling Media)
Your banner space is killer. I think it’s the best money I have spent. 6mmbr has a really great following, and the people know that if it’s up on your web page it has to be something good. Thanks again.

Alex Sitman, MasterClass Stocks, Inc.
Be sure to let me know when my ad is due again. The hits delivered to my site have been outstanding as have the QUALITY orders from some of your viewers. I believe it to be the best advertising money that I have spent in many years, thanks again for doing such a quality job.

Richard Franklin, Richard’s Custom Rifles
Your site has brought me a lot of good business. Just recently I got orders for two $4000 rifles.
I plan to expand my advertising presence because I know this works. When we ran a Big Banner for our DVDs on the home page, we were immediately swamped with dozens of orders.

What AccurateShooter.com users are saying about us:

“I would like to say ‘Thank you’ for running the most informative, no-nonsense accurate shooting website out there. I just got back into shooting last year, having never reloaded before, and really never into the accuracy game. I can tell you that what I have learned from your articles and on the forum would have taken many years to learn through trial and error and spending a lot of money experimenting with loads, barrels, etc.; this would be daunting to say the least without a resource like AccurateShooter.com.” — Andy Wiese

G’day, Awesome web site. You guys have spent a huge amount of time and effort and it certainly shows. Keep up the good work.” — Muz in OZ (Murray Hicks)

“6mmBR.com is the best shooting site—bar none.” — R. Schatz, NBRSA 600-yd Champion

“Thanks for making your website the most informative SHOOTING site on the internet. Thanks to you, I have been able to come to a decision on which dream rifle to get built. Gunsmith Clay Spencer, action Kelbly’s. I have already been in contact with them.” — Mike Darlow

“Just wanted to let you know what a superb site you have. I am a 6PPC BR competitor and roam Benchrest.Com extensively. I just surfed around and must say it is perhaps the finest shooting web site I have seen! Great work.” — Jeff Stover, IBS President

“Thank you for the site. I’ve learned more in the 11 months I’ve been on your site than I did in 40 years of reloading and target shooting.” — Rick Clark

“To make a long story short, this website is my go-to guide for precision shooting. The information available on this website has bettered my education in precision shooting, my game and my supplies and equipment.” — Scott Murphy

“[Without question] the best done shooting web site on the internet.” — Boyd Allen

“Since I found your site last year I have devoured nearly everything on it. I have been building target and varmint guns since 1981, and 6mmBR is the best source of information I have ever run across.” — Ray Walters

“This website has got to be one of the best on the Internet! I have been considering a 6BR and had a lot of unanswered questions. In short time I found the answer to EVERY question I had about this extraordinary cartridge.” — Glenn

“Great looking site. I can’t believe how fast the graphics load even on a dial up when I’m on the road. Better yet it doesn’t freeze up my admittedly ancient laptop. Unique, or close to it is all of the information on smiths, barrelmakers, stockmakers, action makers and gadget makers. Even scopes. Even the wildcat forms of the cartridge.” — Rust

“Here’s a donation. This is the best site on the www.” — C. Wetherington

“Thank you for the help. This site is by far the best shooting site out there.” — Jon Kujawa

“I have been accessing the 6mmBR.com site frequently over the past 6 months enjoying all the various articles. I even had two 6 BR rifles built by Richard Franklin (I was convinced that [it] would be a great ‘hog’ rifle). I just picked up the rifles a couple of weeks ago and I’m very happy with the performance. In perusing the site, it appeared to me that someone or some group was contributing great effort as evidenced by the quality of the site. [My] donation was intended, in part, to indicate my appreciation for all the work that goes into maintaining this excellent site…. I feel it is I that owe you folks a thank-you for all your efforts.” — J. DeMeo

“I am new to the 6mmBR/AccurateShooter site and am of the opinion it the best precision shooting site on the net. Great work.” — R. Waugh, Australia

Thank you for all of the great info on your site. I entered and won my first f-class match last weekend shooting a 6BR, without your site I probably would never have considered building a rifle for this caliber that has become my favorite. — Ben Winget, MN
