Precision Rifle Optics Workshop – April 21, 2018

Precision Rifle Optics Workshop – April 21, 2018


Your scope is a critical component of your precision rifle system. Many experts will recommend that you should spend more on your optic than on the rifle it is attached to. Due to the massive surge in interest in long range and precision rifle shooting, the optics market has exploded with scopes to fit almost every budget and shooting activity. In order to get the best performance out of your optic, it is important to ensure it is positioned and mounted correctly, and the shooter needs to have an intimate understanding of the interaction between the various controls.



This class is a one day deep-dive into precision riflescopes.  Topics covered include:

  • First Focal Plane vs. Second Focal Plane
  • Minutes of Angle (MOA) vs. Miliradians (Mil)
  • Parallax Adjustment
  • Reticle subtensions
  • Estimating range
  • And more…




Attendees will learn to properly adjust the eye relief, and length of pull (where applicable), as well as different methods of leveling optics. 

Range estimation will be covered in detail and reinforced through a number of exercises.

This is a non-shooting class – no ammunition is required.

Students will need a scoped rifle and shooting mat.  A pocket calculator and/or mil-dot master will also be helpful.


Class fee is $150

Class Size = 20

Class Location: Sandusky County Sportsman’s Club – 3950 State Route 600 – Gibsonburg, Ohio

Class Date: Saturday, April 21, 2018 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
