Long Range Rifle (Day 2)

May 21 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

LONG RANGE RIFLE (2 DAYS)

This class is designed for shooters who want to challenge their abilities at long ranges.  This 6-8 hour class will cover all the necessary skills for shooting out to 600 yards.

This class is broken up into two sections:
Day 1: Classroom portion at GAT Guns
Day 2: Range portion is held at the Aurora Sportsman’s Club, Waterman, IL

Each student will receive a copy of the material in the classroom.  This class will also qualify you for the follow up courses offered by Safe Side Tactical to enhance and develop your skills as a long range shooter.

In the classroom we will cover ballistic information and calculations needed for long range shooting.  At the range we will confirm your zero, perform the tall target drill to confirm scope adjustments, perform ballistic calculations and then shoot on the 600 yard range to confirm your adjustments.

Prior to the class your rifle needs to be zeroed at 100 or 200 yards.

Rifle and ammunition should be suitable for long range shooting. Appropriate calibers (but not limited to) .223/5.56 (62gr.- 80gr.), .308, .30-06, etc. Lighter bullet weights are not recommended for long ranges.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact one of the instructors before class.
