Precision Rifle Training

In the first two days of this course, students will practice and perfect their marksmanship skills out to 400 yards. Exercises include setting up your rifle, zeroing your rifle, calling your shots, understanding your scope and turrets, shooting a tall target test, and more.

Instruction emphasizes marksmanship, the importance of consistency, wind-reading skills, dialing proper scope adjustments, and the use of modern tools such as a Kestrel meter and ballistic apps to calculate precise firing solutions.

In the afternoon of Day 2, all participants will shoot a skills test at the 400-yard line. Students who pass this test will move to our 800-yard range for Day 3 and Day 4 and will hone their longer-range skills. Students who move to the 800-yard range will also practice shooting off of barricades and tank traps as well as effective shooter-spotter communication.

Students who do not pass this skills test in the current class will continue for two more days on our 400-yard range to increase their level of confidence and proficiency with their chosen rifle system.

NOTE: This Day 2 skills test must be taken each time the student attends the 4-Day Precision Rifle course. The determination of whether the student moves to our 800-yard range or continues on our 400-yard range will be based solely and completely on the studentís current Day 2 skills test in their current class. Previous scores on this Day 2 skills test from past classes will not be considered.
