Sort your setup and get a firm understanding of how it works and how to get the most out of it. From gear setup to zeroing and confirmation, ballistic solution development and confirmation – combine science and art into a core that you can continue to build on.

The course

This course is for the shooter who is looking for an in-depth introduction in the world of precision shooting. Developing a better understanding of the equipment required, it’s setup and it’s utilisation to consistently and quickly engage targets at range.

New to shooting, wanting to hone the fundamentals or wanting some time to create and validate some data, this is the day for you.

Based in Auckland, a private range will allow you to shoot out as far as the rifle and you are capable of.


Minimal. A willingness to learn and an appreciation for basic firearms safety. If you need to, we can even supply the firearm!

What you bring to the course in regards to previous experience and equipment will determine how fast we can progress to shooting out to distance. A previously setup firearm, that is already zeroed and dialled in, will allow us to get pushing out to distance further – but – if we need to start from scratch and get your new gun on paper – we can do that as well.

Course Contents

It should be noted, that courses are always customised to the client’s requirements and prior experience. We will determine what exactly you are seeking to achieve and will be able to cater to it.

  • Setup – Before we do anything. Let’s check your rifle is correctly setup and shooting for you. Learn about rifle, optics, turrets, reticles and more. It’s a gear shakedown and setup.
  • Fundamentals – A primer of the fundamentals of shooting – positioning, trigger control, recoil management.
  • Zero – Learn how to properly zero your rifle, understand the process, refine your setup.
  • ‘Try’ Data – Using a Chronograph and Ballistic Software, develop a basic ballistic profile for your system.
  • Confirm – Confirm our ballistic predictions, refine and true theory with actual.
  • Integrate – Go through the process of creating drop sheets and date, ready for the field.

Equipment requirements

If you don’t already have any of this – let us know and we can organise a suitable firearm to use on the day.



  • A rifle that is capable of at least printing a 1 Minute of Angle (1 inch) group at 100 meters/yards
  • A bipod mounted onto the system
  • 80 rounds of your normal ‘main’ ammunition (we may only need to shoot half of that)
  • A magnified optic that has exposed target style turrets, a tactical style reticle (MIL or MOA)
  • Appropriate clothing for the weather
  • Any special dietry requirements of medical supplies (please notify us)

Nice to have, but not critical (and we can supply)

  • Your ballistic computer (let us know what you are bringing)
  • A rangefinder and kestrel weather meter
  • A suppressor (some ranges require the use of suppressors)

We supply

  • Chronograph, targets, safe shooting environment
  • One on one tuition and coaching
  • Additional equipment to use and test

What you will walk away with

  • A gun that is ready to go and a better understanding of how it works
  • An understanding of the shooting fundamentals – how to apply them, when to break them
  • Some basic drills for practice on the range!
  • Verified and tested ballistic charts for your primary ammo
  • Error Budget Data Analysis – know how far you can go!

“Great course to take your basic shooting to the next level. Had a superb time out with Kerry. He took me through the basics and helped spot bad practice before it became bad habits. Came away feeling far more confident than I’d been before being there. Kerry was very patient. Overall, a superb course. I thoroughly recommend it.” – Gareth
