Overview

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.


Topics Covered:

  • Optic/Rifle System and Setup
  • Rifle Marksmanship Fundamentals
  • Shot Group Analysis
  • Application of 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.

Required Equipment:
  • Rifle Capable of 1 MOA Accuracy or Better
  • Magnified Optic With Exposed Elevation Turret and Reticle Capable of Being Used for Holdovers at Minimum
  • Bipod
  • Appropriate Range Attire (Pants, Close-Toed Shoes)
  • 150 Rounds Rifle Ammo of a Consistent Load
  • No Steel Core or Armor-Piercing Rounds Allowed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Training! I learned more about shooting in my three days of Long Range 1,2,3 than I had in my 45 years of active shooting. Corey and Justin led the classes and demonstrated that they are both accomplished marksmen and gifted teachers. Every topic was explained in the classroom and immediately followed with range time to make it real for us. Most of the Vortex Edge instructors were involved in some way during the three days and all went out of their way to meet the needs of attendees: setting up the firing line and targets, spotting our shots, helping adjust/fix optics and rifles when needed, etc. The range was perfect and had a gorgeous hunting lodge just steps from the firing line where we did the classroom work and took our meals. Hot meals were great each day, twice catered from local restaurants and on the third day Brennan demonstrated his mastery of both the kitchen and grill. When you leave you WILL be able to hit out to 1000 yards! Expect to be able to make first shot hits out to at least 500 yards on a regular basis. I was stunned by what they were able to teach me! Long Range 1,2&3 exceeded my expectations. The folks involved from Vortex Edge could not have been nicer, more knowledgeable, or more professional. Driving home I felt less like I had taken three days of training and more like I had spent a long weekend shooting with really helpful friends! I may take every course Edge offers!
