Precision Rifle 1
Precision Rifle 1 is the second phase of our precision rifle shooting curriculum. This 2 day course will build on the concepts learned in Precision Rifle Fundamentals. Topics covered will include equipment selection, fundamentals of marksmanship, scope mechanics and operation, minute of angle and MIL relation math, cold and hot bore zeroing, internal and external ballistics, ballistics data collection methods / recording, correcting for environmental effects, wind reading and adjustment, spotting, rifle diagnostics and maintenance. Students will have the opportunity to shoot from 200 to 1000 yards on a known distance range.
In an effort to ensure that all participants get ample one on one instruction this course is limited to 12 students.
