INTRO TO PRECISION RIFLE | JULY 22, 2018, RANGE 11
This class is designed to introduce you to the factors (Mechanical, Environmental, Psychological & Physical) that influence your performance at distance.
You will need a center-fire rifle capable of producing MOA groups at 100 and 200 yards, a variable power optic, bipod, pinch bag and the desire to understand why your bullet does what it does when you press the bang switch.
To get the most out of the class, you should purchase and download the Strelok+. Ballistic Calculator onto your smartphone. You will also need to start capturing information for your gear. I'll list that below. If you don't worry if you don't have all the suggested info. You can also gather it later and "Build" your rig into the Strelok+ app.
Live to train, train to live…. and ALWAYS shoot to WIN!
