Scoped Rifle Applications

The next level in scoped rifle training

In this class, shooters will gain more familiarity of their own and their rifle's capabilities through a series of diagnostic exercises. In addition, shooters will engage difficult targets from a variety of field positions in compressed time limits.

Students are required to have attended our Scoped Rifle Elements class or an equivalent class taught by a recognized school (please contact us if you have any questions on this). This class is fast-paced, and involves some fairly strenuous activity including a lot of walking, and a lot of time spent in the prone shooting position as well as various field positions.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Spotter skills and shooter/spotter teams
  • Using reticles to estimate range
  • Advanced equipment diagnostics
  • Developing range cards and field sketches
  • Improvised rests and supports
  • Practical applications

Equipment List

  • A bolt-action or semi-automatic centerfire rifle in .223, .308, or similar caliber (no magnums). Rifles should have a free-floating heavier profile barrel, (lightweight hunting or carbine-type barrels are not recommended). Optics need to be mounted with strong rings and mounts low enough to get a comfortable cheek weld on the stock. A quality scope with finger-adjustable knobs and a simple reticle (such as mil-dot or mil-hash) is strongly recommended. We will teach you to use what you have, and students have performed well in this class with a variety of optics, however, Mil/Mil optics seem to give people less trouble than other optics types in this class. It is recommended your rifle also be equipped with a sturdy bi-pod, tall enough for you to comfortably shoot from the prone position. There are a multitude of options available and setting up a precision rifle can be confusing. Please contact us prior to class with your rifle specifications if you have any questions.
  • Ammunition - 200 rounds of quality match grade ammunition. (This class will involve shooting at steel targets, please do not bring steel jacketed, steel core - A.K.A. green tip, armor piercing, tracer, incendiary or other exotic ammunition types)
  • Shooting Mat
  • Personal Protective Equipment: Hearing protection (muffs, plugs, or both), and eye protection (ANSI Z.87 or MilSpec strongly recommended)
  • Water, lunch, snacks
  • Rain/Sun gear and sunscreen, or bug repellant as necessary
  • Other range gear as desired (mag loaders, spotting scope, tools, etc...)
