NOTE: Must be familar with basic scope operation and be able to shoot a 1-1.5″  5 shot group at 100 yards

For those who have a good long range rifle setup, a basic knowledge of how a scope works, and regularly shoot a 1-1.5″ group at 100 yards, this is a good course for you. Most people taking this course have not shot past 200 yards, so don’t be shy about siging up if you meet these requirements.  If you are good at 100 yards, you will have no trouble at 1000 yards.

This course follows the same basic outline as the LRP 1.0 course, the difference being we don’t spend as much time on the basics.  If you have quesions about your skill  level and are wondering if this is the right course for you Call Jackson @ 631-902-0972, he is happy to go over the course with you.

$850.00 includes 2 nights bunkhouse/clubhouse lodging and 2 days lunch

2 Day Course

This course is shot exclusively from the prone shooting position 

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. Class 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 zero 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 have steel targets set up from 200-1000 yards.

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 take a break 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. We will then have a reticle workshop which will include unknown distance ranging. Day 1 is a LONG day, we will not finish up until around 6:30 pm.

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 and confirming each yardage.  We will do some new UKD drills(unknown distance estimation) and we have NEW life size animal targets out in the field for 2022 for you hunters. WE will continue reticle work on day 2, and shoot the field using our scopes reticle.   We will end the day with a NEW final drill to determine the TOP SHOT.    Finish up by 3pm the latest.
