About this Course

Few shooters have the capability to engage targets out to distances in excess of 300 yards. You don't have to be constrained by great distances any longer.

The Precision Rifle 1 course was designed specifically to give shooters the confidence to take long range shots with the certainty that they will connect. The course provides advanced marksmanship skills and drills that will make any shooter a long-range shooter.

The course provides the same type of training used in long-range shooting by the military and law enforcement's top accuracy shooters. The course provides everything you need to confidently stretch your effectiveness to the full potential of your weapons capability. 

Come learn a skill that puts food on the table.

Learn from some of the best instructors in the world, with decades of experience in long-range shooting. 

You will spend the morning learning the techniques to sight in an accuracy system and  increase the effective range of your shooting.  Throughout the day you will apply what you’ve learned and push your shooting skills out to incredible distances. You will finish the day with a real-time test of your shooting skills evaluated by top accuracy shooters. 

Come see just how far you can go.

Everyone at Sheepdog Response is very excited to see you there! If you have any questions, please feel free to email info@sheepdogresponse.com and we will get right back to you. Thanks, and have a great week!

Topics Covered

Morning We will cover types of optics and their uses, “Glassing” (observing from long-range with binoculars or magnified optics), different weapon systems and the benefits/drawbacks of each, and how to accurately sight-in a system and calculate long-range shots to achieve a “one-shot, one-kill” ratio every time you pull the trigger. 

Afternoon On the range you will put everything you learned into practical use. You will engage targets at progressively longer distances until you can confidently stretch your skills to their fullest potential. You will log real information about your weapon system that will give you a complete understanding of its capabilities and how you can best use it to take log-range shots, with confidence, to put food on the table and wipe varmints off the map.
