Course R300 – Precision Rifle is a two-day (16 hour) course of rifle marksmanship and counter-sniper tactics for shooters with magnified sighting devices. The aim of this course is to build on the basics learned in previous training to allow seasoned shooters to gain competency and proficiency. This is a fighting class that combines long-range rifle marksmanship with the skills of combat field craft.
Students in this course participate in guided instruction, practical exercises, as well as live-fire examinations. Techniques covered include safe employment, various shooting positions, site alignment, trigger squeeze, breath control, movement, and marksmanship at ranges out to 800 yards. The end-state of the course for the student is mastery of shot placement at extended range as well as tactical decision making for where and how to get into firing position. Shooters will learn to engage and make solid hits more accurately than many believe possible.
All students are expected to be seasoned shooters before attempting this course. Throughout the duration of its two-day format, students will build upon their experience to master topics that include marksmanship, field craft, movement, and tactical decision making. The course relies heavily on the reinforcement of standards and fundamentals to achieve accelerated success.
