Completed my first Appleseed Project shoot. I really thought I knew how to shoot a rifle until I tried the target without their training. This 2 day course taught safety, the six steps to making the shot, NPOA, three shooting positions, and how to use the sling in each position.
The instructors, I think there were 8 or so for 45 shooters, gave everyone personal time to learn the points. Their intent is to teach a person with a service rifle to hit a man sized target at 500 yards using the 25M Army Qualification Targets (AQT). I hear a lot about close quarter encounters. This teaches you how not to get in that situation.
I shot about 170 rounds of 22lr the first day and qualified as rifleman with a 218 out 0f 250. The next day I used my AR and shot a 233.
A little Revolutionary War history is taught during the weekend. Overall it's the best $70 I've spent for any kind of training.
I highly recommend everyone to try it. Just google Appleseed project.
Neat. Thanks for the review.
What rifle did you use for Day 1? Or did you just use a .22 conversion for your AR?
I used a Remington 597, bull barrel with a BSA Sweet 22 Scope for the first day. I considered a conversion, but couldn't get it to group very well.
You need a 4MOA rifle. There were 10-22's and marlin glenfield everywhere.
