Prerequisite Class(s): Completion of the 1-Day Precision Rifle Fundamentals course (one time only) AND the 4-Day Precision Rifle course on the 800 yard range within the last 24 months.
ALL students must show photo ID at Sign-In, regardless of age!
This course will give returning students the opportunity to fine-tune their ballistic data, especially at longer distances that many of the public ranges do not provide. In the morning of Day 1 students will confirm their 100 yard zero including a shot calling exercise and then immediately start shooting from 500 yards and beyond.
On Day 2, students will confirm data at closer distances and shoot the Precision Rifle Skills Test in the afternoon.
This course represents a skill-builder covering the skills taught during the 4-day Precision Rifle course.
