Long Range Course Outlines

Long Range Precision  1 

This is a beginner to intermediate that will stress the importance of quickly acquiring and engaging targets.  A basic understanding of the prone shooting is highly recommended.

2 Days  Course – Price $675.00 per shooter: (deposit of $325 due when you register, balance due day of the course )

DAY 1– 8 AM  Check in at clubhouse and go over safety rules and procedures.  We will go over scope operation and setup and discuss some basic ballistics that will be effecting our bullets path to the target.   Understanding the basics of internal, external and terminal ballistics is a crucial part of long range shooting.  If you miss a target, we want you, the shooter, to be able determine what you think was the cause of the miss.  This way you will be able to correct it in the field, and score a second round hit.  We will then go over basic scope set up and function prior to any live firing.   Only  2 hour of classroom, for this course, all other instruction will take place during live fire. Shooters will then get out their gear and set up at a shooting position.   We will note the days conditions and log our data.


All shooting will be done from the Prone Shooting Position.   Proper positioning behind the rifle is essential to consistent long range shooting.  We will then begin our 100 yard sight in confirmations.  Shooters MUST show up with their rifle zeroed at 100 yards.  Some adjustments may need to be made, so we will take our time to get this correct for each shooter.


Once all shooters are sighted in, we will begin to engage targets at increasing distances.  Shooters will begin logging elevation and windage data for each distance.  Target distances we can expect to reach 1000 yards by the end of the day!

We Will Break For Lunch.  Bring Food and plenty of liquids, there is a small cooking shack equipped with a griddle, and we now have a BBQ available for students to use at the firing line.   Feel free to bring coolers, portable BBQ’s, lawn chairs, etc


Throughout the day, your Instructors will continue to discuss how and why to make adjustments due to internal and external ballistics factors.  Shooters can take breaks whenever they want, and are encouraged to come look through the spotting scope and spot for each other.

We will do a  Hostage  Sniper Training skills drill, Best Hand Poker Shoot and a SWAG giveaway “game shoot”   The winner OR winners will win a prize.


We will  break around 4 PM, but  the line will stay hot until 5 PM for shooters who feel they need extra work, need to make adjustments, or just want to bang steel. Spotting scopes will be available for students to use to spot for each other. Line will go Hot again at Dusk for low light shoot.  Feel free to bring other rifles if you like, we can help you get quick data on them.

Evening LOW LIGHT DUSK Shoot – after we break for the day, students and instructors will have some time to relax, and unwind as the sun starts to set. We will head back up the hill to the range for some low light shooting.  If you have an illuminated reticle, you will get a chance to see how well they function in low light.

Day One is a long day, so be ready to do a lot of shooting

DAY 2  –  Meet at the range at 8:00. We will go over any questions anyone may have from the prior day, then back to shooting.

Cold bore 800 yard shot

Day 2 will include basic UKD (unknown distance estimation drill )  –  Team Drill –  UKD  Teams will be tasked with mapping terrain, spotting their targets in the field, range estimation of  each target, and engaging each target.  Students will have full use of spotting scopes, laser range finders, and kestrel.

Our last and most important drill of the course is our  Know your Limits Pick 3 Drill.  This is the culmination of everything you have learned.  Each shooter will pick 3 targets in the field and score points for each hit. You will leave day two feel very proud of your accomplishments.  We should have day two wrapped up by 3pm [/su_spoiler] [/su_accordion]

Shooters will engage targets from 100 to 1000 yards at 50 yard increments.  This course will include an a more in depth discussion of ballistic and ballistic calculators, intro to basic PRS positional shooting from various obstacles.  Knowledge of your scope reticle is crucial, using elevation and windage holds will be necessary.  This course will cover more unknown distance shooting and holders than LRP1.  During the course of the 2 days, we will have various timed and point stages which will be cumulative and the shooter with the most points at the end of day 2 will be awarded the top shooter award.
