Long Range Precision Rifle Shooting is becoming more popular due to the number of well trained veterans leaving the services yet continuing on with their skills in a competitive setting. To shoot accurately over long ranges, a marksman is required to employ their understanding of the effect the environment and atmospherics has on their ammunition, and to undertake a number of calculations to ensure they hit their targets on the first shot.
The process of instilling the appropriate mindset, assessing the environment, developing expertise in the tools, working as a tight-knit team and employing these exacting skills to achieve an outcome where there is little margin for error, are transferrable skills in any environment, trade, craft or profession. This is why we conduct this training at theMill.
During this fundamentals training package we provide students with a basic understanding of the fundamental theory of long range marksmanship including but not limited to:
Use of precision shooting tools;
The roles and responsibilities of a precision shooting team;
Range finding and judging distance; and
Determining atmospherics and their influence on their projectiles.
The training is conducted over 2-days and includes:
Theoretical and practical weapons training;
Target shooting at ranges up to 2000m.
All staff are accomplished, licensed and qualified ex-military combat veterans with extensive international experience in weapons training, safety and elite-level marksmanship.
