This class is designed for shooters who want to challenge their abilities at long ranges.  This 6-8 hour class will cover all the necessary skills for shooting out to 600 yards.  The classroom portion is held at GAT GUNS; the range portion is held at the Aurora Sportsman’s Club, Waterman, IL. See the Training Calendar for dates.

Each student will receive a copy of the material in the classroom.  This class will also qualify you for the follow up courses offered by Safe Side Tactical to enhance and develop your skills as a long range shooter.

In the classroom we will cover ballistic information and calculations needed for long range shooting.  At the range we will confirm your zero, perform the tall target drill to confirm scope adjustments, perform ballistic calculations and then shoot on the 600 yard range to confirm your adjustments.

Prior to the class your rifle needs to be zeroed at 100 or 200 yards.  You will need to bring eye and ear protection and 100 rounds of ammunition.  We suggest bringing your own spotting scopes, calculator, and shooting rest if you currently have them.  We will have some available the day of class for use.

Rifle and ammunition should be suitable for long range shooting.  Appropriate calibers (but not limited to) .223/5.56 (62gr.- 80gr.), .308, .30-06, etc.  Lighter bullet weights are not recommended for long ranges.  If you have any questions or concerns, contact one of the instructors before class.
