OVERVIEW

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:

  • Fundamental weapons safety

  • Selection of optics, rifles and ammunition

  • Principles and theory of small arms fire and marksmanship

  • Various firing positions and recoil management

  • Preparation before firing and cleaning/inspection after firing

  • The basic roles and responsibilities of a precision shooting team

  • Range finding and judging distance

  • Introduction to long-range accuracy shooting

The training is conducted over 2-days and includes:

  • Theoretical and practical weapons training;

  • Target shooting at ranges up to 2000m.
