Lewistown, PA Range

NOTE: This is a beginner Long Range Precision course NOT a beginner rifle course

NOTICE: This course is very similar to our LRP1.5 Course, if you can shoot a 1-1.5″ five shot groupd at 100 yards and are familar with basic scope operation you can take the LRP 1.5 Course.  If these courses are full look into our LRP1.5 course or call Jackson if you have questions concerning your skill level.  Most guys taking 1.0 and 1.5 have not shot beyond 200 yards.  WE go over the basics a liitle faster in the 1.5, so if you have the basics down, the 1.5 may be for you.

If you only shoot 100 or maybe 200 yards at your range and you want to learn the basics of Long Range shooting, this is the course for you.  You must be able to shoot between a 2-3″ FIVE shot group at 100 yards so we know you have the basics of being a good trigger puller down.  You must have a rifle set up capable of consistency at 1000 yards, and know the basics of operation of the weapon system.  (Call Jackson, he is happy to go over your rifle set up with you)  $850.00 includes bunkhouse/clubhouse for 2 nights

2 Day Course

Price $850.00 per shooter: $50 registration fee when you register online, we will contact you for the $400 deposit, the balance or $400 is due day of the course. (registration fee is non-refundable, please read our refund policy)

Camping and RV parking on the grounds is free.  There are several hotels in the area, we usually stay at the Super 8 which is 3 miles down the road. Classes fill up quickly. We will be starting at 8AM  – we recommend coming up the night before and crashing at the clubhouse.

DAY 1

8 AM  Check in at clubhouse and go over safety rules and procedures.  Classroom from 8am-10:30am.   All other instruction will take place during live fire on the range.

All shooting will be done from the Prone Shooting Position.  We will then begin our 100 yard sight in confirmations.  Shooters MUST show up with their rifle zeroed at 100 yards.  Some adjustments may need to be made, so we will take our time to get this correct for each shooter.

Once all shooters are sighted in, we will begin to engage targets at increasing distances.  Shooters will begin logging elevation and windage data for each distance.  Target distances we can expect to reach 1000 yards by the end of the day!

We Will Break For Lunch, we will provide burgers, hot dogs, sides and beverages for everyone on Friday.  We have a grill available for students to use at the firing line.   Feel free to bring coolers, portable grills, lawn chairs, etc

We will break for the day around 4:30 PM, but  the line will stay hot until 5 PM for shooters who feel they need extra work, need to make adjustments, or just want to bang steel. Spotting scopes will be available for students to use to spot for each other.  Feel free to bring other rifles if you like, we can help you get quick data on them.

DAY 2

Meet at the range at 8:00 and start the day with a long range cold bore shot.

Day 2 will include doping the range for the change in atmospheric conditions, basic UKD (unknown distance estimation drill )  and reticle ranging. Finish up by 3pm the latest.
