Introduction to Long Range Precision Rifle

This class is a 24 hour block of instruction on precision rifle setup, external ballistics, precision rifle shooting fundamentals and how to apply those fundamentals in field conditions. Most rifle shooters already have the equipment necessary to be effective at ranges from 100-500 yards in almost any wind condition and much further than that under ideal conditions. This class will show the students how unlock their shooting potential and turn those 400-500 yard shots that were previously thought to be long range into simple chip shots.

At the end of this course students will be impacting targets between 400-500 yards utilizing modified shooting positions (trees, rocks and tripods) and targets out to 1,000 yards utilizing prone shooting positions.
