Practical Scoped Rifle
This intermediate range course covers the key skill sets required for rapid, accurate engagement of targets from 25-800 yards in a challenging field environment. The course is designed around the application of hunting rifles, enhanced battle rifles, and shorter-barreled precision rifles in standard calibers. Emphasis is on practical methods for spotting, ranging and putting effective rounds on target in a compressed timeframe, in realistic hunting or tactical scenarios.
The facility also has lodging on site for our students which is included in the course cost.
