INTRODUCTION TO LONG RANGE SHOOTING

Are you looking for a rifle to shoot at distances longer than 100 Yards?  Wondering if your current rifle or scope is sufficient? Curious about the ammunition you are using? This class will provide you with the information you will need to prepare yourself to shoot accurately at longer distances. After completing this class, you will have developed a good foundation and are prepared to take our Long Range Rifle classes to be offered during the summer months.

Long range shooting is more than just ballistic solvers and bullet drop calculations. Accurately shooting at long ranges requires a combination of a good rifle set-up, good ammunition, a stable shooting platform, and good shooter fundamentals. In this class we will cover the following:

  • Characteristics of a Long Range Rifle
  • The basics of Rifle Scopes
  • Ammunition Selection
  • Building a Shooting Platform
  • Shooting from a Bench
  • Shooting Prone
  • Taking the Shot

This class will also take you through the basics of what to look for in purchasing a magnified scope: from focal plain to magnification choices, common types of reticle choices, as well as, MOA vs Mill adjustments and picking the correct one for your application. A major point will be made on pricing points to consider when purchasing scopes. There is a wide variety on prices and we will go into explaining why there is such drastic pricing differences between brands of scopes. We will also discuss mounting rings and mounting systems for your scopes on a variety of rifles from AR-15’s to bolt action precision long range rifles. There are many different types and options available and some are better than others.

Let us help educate you on the complex area of magnified optics, so you can make the correct choice for you and your application.

We will be demonstrating both benchrest and prone positions in the class. If you have any questions about your current rifle, feel free to bring it to class unloaded with no ammunition present.
