Independence Training Precision Rifle

02/24/2017 - 02/26/2017

Put on by Independence Training at Cowtown Range, Peoria AZ

This course is about making precision hits at extended ranges, not just long range shooting. This includes learning the ballistics of your rifle and caliber, how to estimate unknown distances, how to gauge the wind, and how to properly utilize the fundamentals of marksmanship. Utilizing military sniper techniques and long-range competitive shooting concepts, you’ll learn about equipment setup, shooting positions, and how to properly record your shooting data. By the end of this course, you will be able to achieve precise hits at ranges including and beyond 500 yards, and you’ll also be trained in how to operate in a spotter / shooter team.
