Take your marksmanship to the next level.
If you are interested in learning the science and art of engaging targets beyond your usual 100 yd range This class is for you.
We will begin with a classroom session at Marc-On Shooting and transition to a designated range for a full day of practical exercises and live fire. First day will be at Marc-On Shooting, second will be at outdoor range location.
This class will cover a wide variety of topics with heavy focus on fundamentals of marksmanship.
We will discuss: safety, Optics, Rifles, ammunition, and other equipment.
We will cover basic external and Terminal ballistics, and Break down the process of firing a shot. Other topics include a variety of ranging techniques, adjusting riflescopes, Building solid positions, and wind reading.
Live fire drills include zeroing, collecting drop data from 100-400 yards, and shooting from alternate positions. We will then transition to scope dialing drills, hold-over drills, and more.

Please have your rifle zeroed at 100 yds. with the ammo you will be using for the class. Also, be sure
your scope rings and base is/are secured correctly to the rifle. I recommend degreasing the screws and
using purple lock tite to be sure. Use a torque wrench and tighten to mfg spec. This means you may
have to remove the scope. It’s worth it. It is difficult to fix these problems once the class is underway,
and will slow the class down. Torque all action screws to mfg spec also.
If using .223, be sure your rifle can accurately fire bullets that are around 69 gr or heavier
