This course is the second in a series of Precision Rifle Marksmanship. This course will provide the knowledge for students to be capable of collecting data on their weapon, optic, and ammunition, and using that data for accurate future shots. The focus is for the student to understand Minute of Angle, mils, and how those are applied in rifle marksmanship. Understanding this is essential when attempting to get 1st or 2nd round hits at varying, long distances, as well as accurate, quick re-engagements. Firing will be 100-500 yards but also dependent on students’ weapon system capability; attention will be primarily on accurate data collection rather than stretching the distance.
