2 Day Precision Rifle Course, April 10-11 2010 SE PA
Black Hat Training Corps (http://bhtcorps.com) is running a two day precision rifle training course.
Full details and registration at http://bhtcorps.com/041010reg.html
This two day course incorporates engagements from 100 to 600 yards, and is tailored to the new, or intermediate skill level shooter who is interested in building solid fundamentals, shaking out the proper use of their gear, de-mystifying the trajectory and range estimation math, and encroaching into intermediate territory with moving targets, holdovers, and popups. Round count is what you want to shoot. We recommend 75 per day.
Day 1 (LRGC) will be comprised of classroom instruction, chronograph work, and zeroing at 100/200 yards. Day 2 will be at NHRPC (600 yards) and will be live fire all day.
Concepts to be covered include:
# BRM Review (Basic Rifle Marksmanship Fundamentals, precision rifle specifics of BRM)
# Setting up your shooting position
# Properly recording your engagement data in a data book (we can provide ones tuned to the course)
# Communication and terminology
# Spotter-shooter communication and dialogue
# How to give the shooter information - properly calling hits and misses
# Zeroing - Establishing and maintaining a good precision rifle zero
# Equipment choices for the precision shooter
# Optics, focal planes
# How to avoid three common MISStakes with optics.
# Care and maintenance of the precision rifle platform
# Exterior Ballistics, MET/ENV, and the science of trajectory calculation
# Using a chronograph, and a ballistic calculator
# Reticle based range estimation
# Reticle based holds (against wind, for elevation)
# Introduction to moving target engagements
# Making the most out of uneven ground, or unusual circumstances
# Rapid Bolt Engagement drills
# Unusual/Hasty Position shooting
Cost is a very reasonable $220 which includes lunch on day 1 (with homemade baked ziti).

I took this course over the weekend with Fargo and staff and it was fantastic. Fargo had people from all of the East Coast come in for this and it was worth it.
A lot of great information was passed and drilled into us. By the end of the day all the students were making called shots at 300Y on stationary and moving targets. Novice shooters got good and experienced shooters got better. Many were hitting 400-500 and 600 Y shots with no problem. Plenty of personalized instruction for each person was given.
Training was fast paced, safe and friendly and the weather couldn't have been more cooperative.
Now I have to update my scope because I saw what I need to make the job easier for me.
FYI - I bought one of Mr. Nomad's data books at the class. Great data book to have for a precision shooter. Recommend it.
