Learn the fundamental techniques required to achieve first round hits out to 600 + metres in the field. The focus of the class is on marksmanship and technical manipulation skills in this increasingly popular discipline.
Intended for the beginner to intermediate long-range marksman but offers much value for more experienced shooters. The course follows the path of data gathering at known distances and then moving to unknown distance shooting and will focus on range estimation, wind compensation, calculations and marksmanship disciplines; skills useful for unknown distance long range shooting. While the learning is intense, it is designed to be fun and to add a little stress to test the skills gathered during the course.
