NEW TO SHOOTING
This program is designed for those new to the sport and art of rifle shooting.

Our aim is to give you enough professional knowledge and skill to safely get your shooting pastime off to the best possible start.
We will carefully walk you through safe handling of not only your chosen rifle, but we will give you the training and confidence to handle other firearms you are likely to encounter in your newly chosen past-time. We then move onto the correct and safe set up, and maintenance of your rifle so that it will be as accurate as possible for as long as possible. Moving on from here we take you through correct shooting positions and techniques, followed by how best to obtain your zero including the theory behind this process. We finish the day with a few tips and tricks to help on your path to shooting success and safety.

LONG RANGE SHOOTING
Our Long Range Shooting training will get you well and truly on your way to reaching your long range goals, regardless of your previous training or experience. During the training we discuss and explain external ballistics along with how the environmental conditions, including wind, are going to affect your projectile all the way out to your target. After training you’ll leave with a confidence in yourself and your kit that will have you knocking over targets at distance.
- External Ballistics
- Rifle scopes & reticle patterns (including yours)
- Precision Shooting Fundamentals
- Rifle set-up, grouping & zeroing
- Ballistic software & ballistic software calibration
- Wind reading & calls
- And all the practical shooting required to learn and cement all the theory
With Long Range Shooting training packages from 2 to 4 days in duration we have the course to meet you requirements, skill level and time frame.
If distance is what you desire this is the Long Range Shooting training course for you. This training requires a higher level rifle, scope and ammunition package (contact us to discuss this further). As we reach out further, ballistic software is your greatest ally - we prefer Applied Ballistics or Field Firing Solutions, as these will save you both time and money (and reloading time).See our Loan / hire Equipment page or contact us to discuss your best options so we can personalise these to your needs.

The Answers You Need
What is the general attitude of the instructors and other attendees?
We are passionate about our shooting, and passing on the knowledge and experience to those shooters who come to train with us. Every shooter we have trained to date has arrived with the same passionate attitude and has always been eager and willing to assist others in the same friendly manner in which the training is delivered.
How many Shooters are typically on a course?
One to Eight participants, we maintai a 1-4 Instructor to Participant ratio. All training packages run by us are tailored to the individual or to small groups to accommodate their available dates.
Can you provide some more information on the difference between the Intermediate and Long Range Shooting
The Intermediate package is focused around the shooter that is coming back to the sport or has been shooting for a while, has had no professional training and is looking to improve their knowledge and ability (shooting / body positions, shooting fundamentals, rifle scopes, external ballistics, basic wind calls).
The Long Range Shooting training is focused on developing the knowledge and understanding of ballistics and wind reading to be able to engage targets to the outer limits of your chosen calibre (Long Range shooting fundamentals, rifle scopes and reticles incl. Mil range estimation, External ballistics, Ballistic Software and ballistic software calibration, wind calling).
What distances do you shoot out to across the courses?
Intermediate 0 - 400m (can be increased out to 900m with the appropriate learning curve and equipment).
Long Range Shooting 0 - 930m
What calibers do you recommend for each course
Beginner and Intermediate training .223 (5.56mm) to 30cal (7.62mm) Magnums
Long Range Shooting training: .243 (6mm) to 30cal (7.62mm) Magnums
What optic range do you recommend for each course?
We can and do work with all scopes. For Long Range Shooting training we recommend a higher quality scopes with various magnification capability (e.g. NightForce ACTACR & BEAST, Khales ‘K’-line, Steiner Tactical series, Bushnell Tactical Elite, Vortex Viper PST, Schmdit and Bender PMII etc.)
What optic type do you recommend to match with the course (FFP or SFP, reticle Pattern, magnification range)?
Again we will work with what you have. In saying this a variable magnification scope in First Focal Plane (FFP) allows the shooter to use the reticle pattern to maximum effect in ranging, wind calls and fall of shot correction. Milliradian Reticle / Milliradian adjustments are best.
Are muzzle brakes encouraged or discouraged?
We encourage them, anything to make taming recoil easier is a winner in our books. However this is not to say they're essential.
Where are the ranges you use located?
We operate out of Canberra and use the local ACT ranges, and now in Castlemaine VIC.
If the weather is bad, what are the options (ie rain or total fire ban etc)?
We are yet to have conditions that have prevented any training. We have awnings that we use in bad weather to keep you and your gear out of the rain.
What do you recommend bringing to make the experience more comfortable and enjoyable?
During winter months warm and wet weather clothing, Canberra can be cold. All you need is your shooting gear, some lunch, and we provide you with everything else you need, including home baked muffins for morning tea.
Do you do any chronograph testing?
Yes but only to check the quality of the ammunition, not to calibrate ballistic software. High quality ballistic software will calibrate the muzzle velocity along the entire flight, not just at the muzzle. We recommend and use Applied Ballistics, ballistic software.

I just completed a 2 day course with orange accuracy and could not have been happier with the training and the outcomes I achieved over the two days. Jay knows his stuff and was an excellent communicator of the information.
I would highly recommend anyone thinking about doing some formal training to get in touch with Orange Accuracy

Just spent a great two days on the long range shooting course, it was excellent. De mystifying the Kestrel and learning how valuable (essential) a shooting tool it is was just one part of this great training. It’s a 10/10 from me
Kim L. (Facebook review)
Jay is highly experienced and knowledgeable about long range shooting. he can explain complex theory so that it is easily understood and relatable to your application. there is a lot of well explained theory in the course and a large practical component for reinforcement and demonstration of the theory. all content is delivered at your pace and Jay makes sure you understand before moving on to another subject. there is lots of time to ask questions and go over the fundamentals. I highly recommend this to every shooter regardless of experience you will learn lots!
Beau Ricketts - Precision Varminting (Facebook review)
Great course run by those who have a lot of knowledge and passion for shooting to help others improve their skills. The team answered all our questions and was a great learning experience. Would do it again. Well done, keep up the good work.

Just finished the LRS course with Jay at Orange Accuracy.., what a fantastic course!! We covered everything we needed to and nothing we didn’t. We learnt the proper usage of Kestrel weather meters and Applied Ballistics software, the process and systems for shooting long range, proper scope set up and much, much more. I’m still amazed that I was able to shoot multiple clay targets (only 100mm across!) at 1000 yards. So, if you have an interested in shooting long range, I highly recommend you give Jay at Orange Accuracy a call, you won’t be disappointed!
