The Long-Range Pipeline in our Total Shooter Program is 1-3 days in length and can be taken all at once or split into individual classes over time depending on your preference or schedule. Long-Range 1 is the first day of our program and addresses the fundamentals of long-range marksmanship, proper equipment setup and use, and acquiring accurate ballistic information in a challenging and fun way for everyone. Long-Range 1 sets a strong base for your continued shooting career outside class, and for the more advanced equipment manipulations, adjustments, drills, and skills taught in Long-Range 2 and 3. Our core classes are progressive, so if you complete fewer than the full three days, you can always come back later and pick up where you left off to finish your experience and training.
- Optic/Rifle System and Setup
- Rifle Marksmanship Fundamentals
- Shot Group Analysis
- Introduction to Ballistic Software
- Chronographs and Their Importance
- Ballistic Validation/Data Collection
- Firearm System Capabilities and Limitations
- Methodology on Gathering Individualized Data (DOPE)
What to Know Before You Get Here:
- Long-Range 1 takes place at an outdoor range in Wisconsin with access to distances from 100 to 1,000 yards.
- The location is subject to change and will be communicated clearly to all students prior to the class.
- Lunch will be provided from a local restaurant
We request that all students do an honest self-evaluation of experience and skill level. Brand new shooters or those unsure with their abilities will feel overwhelmed jumping into a class like Long-Range 1, which we have seen lead to safety issues and overall, a lack of having fun. If that’s you, we would love to see you in one of our half-day "Intro to Long-Range" courses! Taking one of these classes will set the stage perfectly to come into Long-Range 1 and beyond.
