PLEASE NOTE: To keep the cost of this course down we require a minimum of three students. If a class does not have three students you may elect to transfer your registration fee to whatever SAFER USA class you wish, apply it to a private lesson or we'll give you a refund.
Prerequisites: Working knowledge of basic rifle safety and handling procedures for your rifle.
Equipment required: .223 Rem or higher caliber rifle sighted in at 100 yards with appropriate long range ammo. Example ammo, .223 Rem 75 gr bullets, 6.5mm 140 gr bullets, 308 Win 160 Gr or heavier bullets.
Course Description: The Long Range Rifle course consists of classroom and practical range exercises. Classroom instruction will include a comprehensive discussion of long range ballistics and environmental considerations, caliber and cartridge selection, the value of hand-loading ammunition tuned for specific situations, and basic marksmanship principles. The practical range exercises will allow shooters to practice sighting in their own rifles and long range marksmanship skill practice out to 600 yards. This course offers a lot of personalized instruction on the range including use of a chronograph and a computer printout of your cartridge’s statistics for use in calculation. We don’t know of anyone teaching a course of this nature.
