In this intense course we conquer the intricacies of repeatable hits at distance. Curriculum covers 100 – 1000yards,  focusing on 600-1000 yards for most students as equipment and fundamentals allow.

Bring your A Game and an open mind as we tackle subjects including safety, platform absolutes, proper shot spotting technique, understanding ammo, external ballistics, factors of precision and accuracy, atmospherics, calculating, proving and truing DOPE, reading wind, dialing and hold overs, stressed shooting, and more! This action packed course will challenge and encourage your long range goals!

Be it the goals of a hobby shooter, competitor, or hunter, this course offers something for everyone looking to take their existing bolt rifle skills to the next level.
