- PRM 301- Richmond
October 14, 2017 - October 15, 2017
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This course is the third in a series of Precision Rifle Marksmanship. This course will push the student to apply the skills they have already learned, but in a situation best mimicking the reality of a mid-range to long- range rifle fight.
The focus will be 2 parts; A) to engage targets at varying distances with a high level of accuracy using hold off, and B) do so under stress and from alternate firing positions.
In a fight, a shooter rarely has time to “dial their knobs” to the exact setting of their target. However, a shooter must still be capable of high accuracy even when they are unable to adjust their optic. That is the purpose of using hold off. Also, when a shooter is in that fight, their heart rate and breathing are high and they are most likely not in a stable firing position which all drastically affects accuracy at further distances. That is the purpose of firing stressed and from alternate firing positions.
PRM-101 focused on eliminating human error. PRM-201 focused on ballistics and data. PRM-301 will focus on using all of the above in realistic scenarios.
