Upon leaving this course the shooter will be confident and proficient in zeroing their rifle, manipulating and using their scope, as well as be able to effectively engage and hit targets at ranges of 500 yards.

Course debrief

Shooter should have a rifle chambered in any caliber ranging from .223 up to .300 Winchester Magnum with a scope that is capable of reaching a distance of at least 600 yards. Scopes of 10x or higher magnification are recommended to complete the paper drills. Your rifle must be capable of shooting 1" groups or better at 100 yards. We highly recommend as a new shooter that you bring a short action rifle chambered in .308 as opposed to a heavy recoiling magnum caliber rifle.

- Rifle with bipod or some sort of shooting platform to shoot in the prone position. (pack, sandbag, etc.)
- Rifle Sling
- Weapons magazines (if applicable)
- Data Book The book we teach from and use is the Impact Data Books. You will need the premade
book in either pocket or standard size and your choice of paper. You can order this prior to the course
- Hearing protection-foam earplugs, hard shells or both will be required by all shooters.
- Eye protection will be required by all shooters.
- Rifle cleaning equipment-rods, bore guides, solvents, patches, brushes, etc.
- Scope tools, wrenches,
- Note pad, pen or pencil
- Appropriate clothing
- Rear support bag or sand sock

Optional items:
- Spotting Scope (if you have one)
- Small backpack
- Sunscreen
- Hat
- Shooting mat
- Stool or chair

300 rds minimum -Factory "MATCH" ammunition. I can't tell you how many times we have seen students try and cut corners by using cheap ammunition that is not accurate and or does not function with their rifle. In order to ensure that you get the most from the class, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you use factory match ammunition. Don't be that guy! If you plan to use hand loads, they must function properly and be safe. Unsafe ammunition will not be allowed to continue to fire and train. Any loss of shooting time in the class do to ammunition is the responsibility of the student. Our goal is to get you on the line to get as much trigger time as possible.

Students should come with an open mind and willingness to learn. Shooter should be willing to make mistakes and receive corrective actions. The shooter will be required to have the proper gear and equipment in order to conduct training. Failure of your gear, ammo and equipment is the sole responsibility of the student. If your equipment is inadequate and/or unsafe then you will finish this
course in an observer role or if you have a shooting buddy willing to loan you their equipment.
We expect the shooter to have a working knowledge of the weapon and equipment that they bring to the course. Shooter should be proficient with loading and unloading their weapons and they should display safe gun handling skills at all times. Safety is our first concern everything else is secondary. Your rifle should be zeroed prior to arriving for the course. This will save time when we go into zeroing drills and techniques. Showing up with a rifle that won't print on an 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper will slow down the training drastically. As long as it's in the ball park we will be good to go!!


Location: Shadow Hawk

Thanks. We are going to try and get up to Granby a couple times this year but the PR2 will depend on the range with the fight with the town. We can run a PR1 with 350 yards but would need more for a PR2.

Still hope to be up there though having some fun with some shooters.
