Rather than a Precision Rifle Course, this 2- day block of instruction is geared toward those who have made the decision to compete or are currently competing in precision rifle series (PRS) type matches. Other than confirming zeroes, you will be “off your belly or bench”, engaging stationary and moving steel targets out to 600 yards from commonly found competition stage set ups: vehicles, barricades, barrels, simulated roof tops, unstable platforms etc. You will be taught how to evaluate and engineer stable shooting positions for a particular stage by best utilizing commonly used competition support items such as pillow bags, bipods, specifically designed support bags, slings and tripods.
Topics to be covered include
- Rifle setup
- Zero confirmation to 600 yards
- Support equipment setup and use
- Shooting stage position building
- External ballistics and drop/wind drift chart development
- Moving target evaluation, lead development and engagement
- Wind calling
- Shooting on the clock – time management
- Team work dynamics and communication
- PRS long range competition firearm.

None, but Precision Rifle highly recommended. You should be well versed in your long range firearm’s/optic’s use and have come-ups out to 600 yards or beyond.
