Email [email protected] for more information.

There are no prerequisites of skill. This course is designed for both the novice and experienced shooter.  A good shooter is always learning.

Here is a list of items needed to participate in the training clinic:

  • 308, 6.5mm, 6mm or similar caliber precision rifle capable of one minute of angle accuracy. Hunting rifles and/or magnum calibers are not recommended. Hunting/sporter profile barrels tend to have a point of impact shift as they heat up and usually have to be shot at a slower pace which will significantly reduce the training value. Magnum caliber recoil will make training difficult due to the quantity of rounds of course and shooter fatigue.
