The Answers You Need
Equipment Recommendations for Long Range Shooting
The below recommendations will assist you in being prepared and well equiped for all Long Range Shooting scenarios, whether it's hunting, competition, or target shooting, remembering these are best possible examples and we can work with kit not specified. We are happy to help you with your equipment choices and provide you advice about equipment purchases, and can arrange the loan of certain equipment eg. Rifle Scopes, Weather Meters for your use during our courses. Contact us for more information regarding equipment loan.
- Magazine fed
- Capable of 1 MOA or less
- Preferably Short-action Calibers (magnums heat up quickly, as do lite weight Sporter profile barrels)
- Minimum total mag: 12x (eg; 3-12x??mm)
- Exposed tactical or capped turrets with return to zero capability
- Milliradian (Mil) adjustments are preferable however no issues with Minute of Angle (MOA). It's preferable if your turret adjustments match your reticle, Mil / Mil or MOA / MOA.
- First Focal Plane (FFP) is preferable however no issues with Second Focal Plane (SFP). A FFP allows the shooter use the reticle pattern at all magnifications when gaining range and measuring targets, fall-of-shot etc.
- Christmas tree style reticle (eg. Horus Vision's Tremor 3) or reticle with half Mil hash lines for ballistic calibration.
- Anti-cant device, level bubble or similar
- We recommend, use and teach Applied Ballistics.
- We also recommend, use and teach the Kestrel Weather Meter w/ Applied Ballistics
- Applied Ballistics can be downloaded to your mobile device from the App Store or Google Play
- We can work with other ballistic engines as required, eg. Field Firing Solutions
What calibers do you recommend for each course?
Beginner and Intermediate training .223 (5.56mm) to 30cal Magnums (7.62mm)
Long Range Shooting training: .243 (6mm) to 30cal Magnums (7.62mm)
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 affect in ranging, wind calls and fall of shot correction. Milliraidan Reticle / Milliraidan 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.
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've 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?
Anywhere up ten (10) participants. Our training packages can be tailored to the individual or 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?
New to shooting 0 - 300m
Intermediate 0 - 400m (can be increased out to 900m with the appropriate learning curve and equipment).
Long Range Shooting 0 - 930m
Where are the ranges you use located?
We operate out of Canberra and use the local ACT ranges.
If the weather is bad, what aren 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 month’s 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 go into load development/reloading, if so which courses?
No sorry we don't but our friends at ADJA Tactical are getting ready to launch theirs. www.adjatac.com
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.
Is there any discount if booking for two people?
Training is charged at $800 per day for individuals and $500 per person per day for groups of two (2) or more people.
