Mountain Precision Rifle
Mountain Precision Rifle is a three-day course set to challenge a shooter both physically and mentally by engaging targets using tripods and natural terrain to include high angles, cross canyon engagements, advanced wind reading, and data collection. It will be a fun challenging experience that will enhance the participant’s overall shooting skills. This will be a physically demanding course, and we recommend you be able to carry your gear up rough terrain for a minimum of at least 100 yards.
This class is for ELR platforms in your caliber of choice. Rental rifles may be available to be used during this course.
