Scoped Rifle Elements – May 19 & 20, 2018
Integrating marksmanship skills, gear and mental abilities to hit small targets at extended distances, this fast-paced two day class addresses precision and intermediate-range scoped rifle marksmanship.
Topics covered will include:
- Equipment and support gear
- Fitting the rifle to the shooter
- Proper optic setup
- Position shooting
- Building a data book
Students will need a bolt-action or semi-automatic centerfire rifle in .223, .308, similar caliber (no magnums). Rifles should have a free-floating heavier profile barrel, (lightweight hunting or carbine-type barrels are not recommended). Optics should be mounted with strong rings and mounts low enough to get a comfortable cheek weld on the stock. A quality scope with finger-adjustable knobs and a simple reticle (such as mil-dot or mil-hash) is strongly recommended. We will teach you to use what you have, and students have performed well in this class with a variety of optics types, however, Mil/Mil optics seem to give people less trouble than other optics types in this class. It is recommended your rifle also be equipped with a sturdy bi-pod, tall enough for you to comfortably shoot from the prone position.
There are a multitude of options and setting up a precision rifle can be the confusing.
Please contact us prior to class with your rifle specifications if you have any questions.
Participants in this class will also need 200 rounds of quality match grade ammunition, eye and hearing protection and range gear (such as sunscreen, bug repellant, hat, snacks, water, shooting mat, spotting scope, etc…)
