New Bigger, Better Site
In late 2010 we did a major, website upgrade which provides larger 300×250 and 728×90 ad formats, with more sophisticated targeting. These big ads deliver higher response rates so you get more “bang for your buck”. These larger ads start at $2.00 CPM (for annual contract). You can contract for a specific term, or for a specific quantity of impressions.
The site reaches over 125,000 Unique Users worldwide every week (as confirmed by Google Analytics). We average over 30,000 visits per day. In January 2012, we totaled over 800,000 visits for the month, and we delivered over Four MILLION pageviews.
Banner Ads run on the home page, at the top of EVERY Message Board page, on the Gun on the Week page, Gun of the Week Archive, Article Archive, and in numerous other locations throughout the site. All Advertisers’ Banner Ads will appear on a dedicated Sponsors Page. For tracking purposes, our ad server logs ad views, click-throughs, and CTR. Advertiser can access stats in real time.
|Ad Formats: 728×90, 600×120, 300×250, 468×60, 160×300, 160×240, 125×125 and custom sizes|

We also offer a combo package giving you the basic 468×60 banner, PLUS a high-performing 300×250 rectangle. The 300×250 banner can host streaming flash video or other rich media. The “near-square” 300×250 format works well with a wide variety of product types.

The 728×90 Leaderboard is our premium placement. Highly effective, Leaderboards can generate up to four times as many click-throughs as standard 468×60 banners. The 728×90 placement commands the page at the top of the site. We normally sell 728×90 banners as part of a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month package with other ad units. If you wish, you can purchase impressions (50K minimum) for a $3.50 CPM. This short-term leaderboard is ideal for product launches or other special promotions.
Shooters Forum 88×31 Button
Price: $300/month (long term discount available — ask)
Impressions: 1,300,000/mo guaranteed.
This plan gives you a dedicated (non-rotating) button on our Forum and Daily Bulletin. Your button is visible ABOVE the fold on EVERY Page Load. Purchasing a Forum Button ensures that the most active and serious site users, Forum visitors, can reach your online store with just one click. Forum users are actively researching gun gear and eager to buy new products–you couldn’t ask for a better audience. A maximum of six (6) 88×31 buttons are sold each month. This gives your company at least one million impressions a month at a very low CPM–around $0.30 per thousand impressions. Button sponsors also receive a prominent link in our popular AccurateShooter Daily Bulletin.
Medium Right Column Ads (160×300, 160×240, 160×160, 125×125)
In our popular Shooters’ FORUM and Daily Bulletin we offer rectangular and square placements in the right column. These are available as dedicated (one-client) or rotating placements. Pricing is based on size, and the number of impressions you want. Minimum term is two weeks.
Full-Width Banner Advertisement (600×120)
Price: $3.00 CPM (with quantity discounts)
The full-width 600×120 banner is a very effective, eye-catching placement that fills a text column from edge to edge. On a custom basis we can do a double-height (600×240) or triple-height (600×360) full-width banner. This works great for targeted placement on a specific section of the site. We also offer a 160×600 vertical (Skyscraper) format.
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
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.

|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 witlh 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

“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

“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
