Precision Rifle Marksmanship 201

Course Description:

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 100-400 yards but also dependent on students’ weapon system capability; attention will be primarily on accurate data collection rather than stretching the distance.

-          Refresher on material covered in PRM-101

-          Classroom instruction on Ballistics, MOA, and Mils

-          Zeroing and zero confirmation

-          Basic Data Collection; data book preferred but not required

-          Hold off; optic with mil or MOA reticle required

Equipment Required:

·       RIFLES

  • All rifle platforms are welcome. .223/5.56 and above recommended but not required. Zero prior to class is preferred but not required.
  • If you plan to attend all PRM classes in the series it is recommended to use the same, quality rifle and scope throughout all PRM classes.

·       SIGHTS

  • Mil or MOA reticle is required for this class. BDC reticles are discouraged for the sake of maximum accuracy.
  • If shopping for a variable zoom scope with MOA or mil reticle, be sure to get First Focal Plane (FFP). You want the reticle to expand and contract as you zoom in and out so that the value of your mil/MOA reticle hash marks stay true throughout all zoom magnifications.


  • Approximately 250 rounds of ammunition.
  • Match Grade ammo is highly recommended. Shooting match grade allows us to identify and fix shooter error more easily. Shooting lower standard ammo makes for larger shot groups which makes it more difficult to identify and fix shooter error.
  • NO armor piercing, steel core, or green tip ammo as this damages the steel targetry.


  • Proper rifle rests allow us to get the most steady position and reduce shooter error. This is particularly important during zeroing procedures.
  • Bipod is highly recommended. Avoid fixed bipods that do not tilt. You want to be able to tilt the rifle to compensate for uneven terrain. This Harris bipod is highly recommended
  • Sand socks or other rear rifle support. Sand socks can be made with many things; rice, beans, corn, etc. The best material are plastic beads of varying size as you can vary the dexterity of the sock, and the plastic is resilient to the weather unlike materials such as rice that cannot get wet.

·       Eye protection

·       Ear protection. Electronic ear protection is recommended as it helps with conversation on the firing line.

Equipment Optional:

·       Data books

·       Cheek rests. We build cheek rests during class but it helps to have something like this with inserts

·       Spotting scope and/or binoculars with tripods

·       Laser rangefinders

·       Tripod (standing/kneeling optic support)

·       Shooting mats

·       Rifle slings

·       Extra magazines

·       Chair, folding table, canopy

·       Rain gear, tarp
