Long Range Rifle  - (Previously Practical Precision Rifle Level 2)

CLEET Number 17-0660

Length: 2 Days (16 hours)

The Long Range Rifle course is exactly that.  It is a course designed around the concept of making very precise shots in situations that shooters normally encounter in the field or operational environment. Whether it's a hunter who wants to take that elk at 300 yards or a police officer who wants to ensure he hits the bad guy where he needs to, when he needs to, without hesitation, this course is the perfect place to start. TDSA employs truly world-class professionals and although this course is written and instructed by military and LE snipers, this is NOT a sniper or Designated Marksman course, nor is it a whiz-bang, look at this fancy gadget type of course. Students will be exposed to the fundamentals of precision rifle marksmanship using primarily their rifle and optic. All targets will be one MOA (if you don't know what that is, you will!) and students will shoot from 100 to 1200 yards in this phase of the course.

Topics covered: Equipment, positional shooting, holdovers, Mil relation formula, environmental factors and how to account for them, reticles and how to use them in a practical manner, zero procedures, data gathering procedures, fundamentals of marksmanship, and much more.

Necessary equipment:

  • A rifle with a scope on it. Minimum caliber- .223, Maximum caliber-.300WM. If you have something else that falls outside those parameters please ask and we'll see if we can accommodate you. May be a bolt or gas gun; bring what you're going to use in real life!
  • 400 rounds of GOOD ammunition. Please try to ensure your selected ammo is all the same make and model, same lot number if possible but not necessary. Think about what ammo you'll likely be shooting when the time comes to employ these skills and bring it if possible. DO NOT bring a hodgepodge of random different ammo; you will not be successful if you do this.
  • A pack or ruck of some kind.

Suggested equipment:

  • Spotting scope with tripod
  • Sand-sock
  • Bipod for rifle
  • Snacks and non-alcoholic drinks
  • Ballistic calculator: this might help you get on target faster and save you some ammo.

 

Note: This C.L.E.E.T. Accredited course qualifies as 16 hours towards continuing education for Oklahoma Law Enforcement Officers.
