Long Range Course Outlines

LONG RANGE PRECISION 1.0

NOTE: This is a beginner Long Range Precision course NOT a beginner rifle course

 

If you have a  rifle and have only shot 100 yards, maybe your groups aren’t that great but you want to learn the basics of Long Range shooting, this is the course for you.  Or maybe its been a while since you’ve shot and want a refresher course, this is a good course for you. You must have a rifle set up capable of consistency at 1000 yards, or rent a set up from us, and know the basics of operation of the weapon system.

 

2 Days  Course – Price $750.00 per shooter: (deposit of $350 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.  Classroom from 8am-10am. 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 hours of classroom for this course.  All other instruction will take place during live fire on the range.

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, we will provide burgers, hot dogs, sides and beverages for everyone on Friday.  We have a grill available for students to use at the firing line.   Feel free to bring coolers, portable grills, lawn chairs, etc

We will break for the day around 4:30 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.  Feel free to bring other rifles if you like, we can help you get quick data on them.

DAY 2  –  Meet at the range at 8:00 and start the day with a long range cold bore shot.  We will go over any questions anyone may have from the prior day, then back to shooting.

Day 2 will include doping the range for the change in atmospheric conditions, basic UKD (unknown distance estimation drill )  and reticle ranging. Finish up by 3pm the latest.
