These courses cover the techniques required to make accurate hits at extended ranges under a variety of conditions, circumstances and distances. Topics include range estimation, scope adjustment and zeroing, minute of angle theory, external ballistics and weather effects.

The Precision Rifle Skill Builder class, focuses of the shooting fundamentals covered the Precision Rifle I two day class. As a prerequisite, participants must have attended the Precision Rifle I class or have a similarly qualifying set of credentials (contact instructor to see if qualifications are sufficient).
A lot of information is covered during the two day Precision Rifle I class. To reinforce much of what was covered, the Precision Rifle Skill Builder class will cover a significant portion of the shooting drills covered in the two day class. The Skill Builder class is heavy on trigger time. This will give students an opportunity to hone their precision rifle skills while receiving instant feedback from the instructor.
Since the information covered in the two day class is a prerequisite, shooters will be expected to show up to class with their rifles zeroed and with enough ballistic data to engage targets out to 850 yards. The class will begin with drills at the 100 yard line and will bounce back to the 600 yard line for the remainder of the day. Throughout the duration of the class, students will reinforce correct body position, bolt manipulation, calling their shots, multi-target engagements, wind calls, and a number of other fundamentals. Both paper and steel targets will be used for this course. The pace for this curriculum will be fast.
Logistically, vehicles must be staged separately from the ranges, so shooters will have limited chances to return to their vehicles. Everything for the range portion of the class should be able to be carried by hand or in a backpack.

Precision Rifle II is a class that builds on the fundamentals taught in Precision Rifle I and focuses on shooting in “field conditions.” As a prerequisite, students must have taken and/or be proficient with the information covered in Precision Rifle I. This class will be broken down into three major sections: (a) an indoor classroom period; (b) range day one; and (c) range day two.
The classroom portion will begin with a brief (half hour) refresher of the fundamentals covered in Precision Rifle I. Thereafter, the discussion will focus on more advanced precision rifle shooting topics. This will include: a) a discussion of ballistics and the advantages/disadvantages of particular calibers; b) maximizing the functions of your rifle scope; c) how to approach different shooting scenarios in order to build fast and practical shooting positions; d) the difference between running a bolt action and semi-auto and the practical effects of each; and e) an introduction into spotter/observer techniques.
Overall, a major focus of this class will be from moving out of a “comfortable prone position” and learning how to engaging targets under field conditions. A discussion of various topics will begin in the classroom, but will be reinforced in great detail during the live fire portions of the course. Because mastering these skills will require additional equipment, students must have a tripod equipped with a rifle saddle and a precision rifle sling for the class (see equipment list for details). The pace of this class will be fast. Shooters are expected to show up with their rifles zeroed and know how to properly manipulate their equipment.
Range day one will focus on a number of drills that will take place from 25 – 200 yards. In doing these drills, students will be able to address the flaws in their shooting positions before distances are increased in range day two. Shooters will start off slow for each drill, with a focus on precision, but time hacks will be applied as the course progresses.
On range day two, distances will increase. Shooters will need data for their rifle/load combination out to 850 yards. Many of the positions covered in range day one will be utilized in range day two, however the focus will be on accuracy at various distances. Students can expect the difficulty of shot scenarios to increase. As part of range day two, students will also serve in a spotter/observer role so they become comfortable with calling shots and making corrections.

DMR/SPR Fundamentals and Application is a class that focuses on using a category of rifles that are extremely versatile and can be pressed into a number of different rolls. As a prerequisite, students must have taken and/or be proficient with the information covered in an entry level carbine course or precision rifle course. This class will be broken into three major sections: (a) an indoor classroom period; (b) range day one; and (c) range day two.
Both the rise in popularity of the AR-15 and the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have led to the development of basic carbines as long range tools. While the capabilities of these rifles differ from those of a true “precision rifle,” their semi-automatic capability gives them a tremendous benefit in most real world situations. Whether you are an active participant in the shooting sports, hunter, or professional law enforcement or military, knowing how to maximize the abilities of your carbine is critical.
The classroom portion of DMR/SPR Fundamentals and Application will begin with a critical discussion about the application of DMR and SPR type rifles. Points that will be covered will include: (1) ballistics; (2) advantages and disadvantages of various platforms; (3) setting up your DMR/SPR type rifle; (4) reliability considerations; and (5) the fundamentals of employing a DMR/SPR type rifle. This information will provide students with a solid basis of understanding for the range portions of the class. Much of the information covered in the classroom will be reinforced by practical application during the live fire portions of the class.
After a period of classroom instruction, students will begin rang day one. Students are required to come to class with a 100 yard zero on their rifles. Note, time will be provided to confirm students’ zeros, but not to zero a rifle from square one. Range day one will focus on drills that take place from 25 – 200 yards. These distances are typical of most urban settings and coincide with distances for hunting and sport shooting applications. Here, shooters can expect to preform drills that will enhance their speed and accuracy on various size targets.
On range day two, distances will significantly increase. While a majority of the targets for range day two will be placed from 300 – 500 yards, shooters will need ballistic data for their rifle/load combination out to 650 yards. Range day two will focus on having students push the capabilities of their carbines and achieve effective hits at extended distances. A variety of steel targets will be used for range day two. Students can expect the difficulty of shot scenarios to increase as the day progresses.
