What is it?
The School of Extreme Long Range immerses students in the extremely detailed-oriented world of Extreme Long Range Engagements with smaller class sizes that provide a more personal experience on the firing line, with technical instruction focused on consistent engagements at the capabilities of the caliber/cartridge and rifle platform combination. All Precision Academy Courses take place off of the confining flat ranges to provide a learning environment that is both challenging and relevant to the purpose behind this extremely addicting sport.
The School of Extreme Long Range (ELR) I introduces students to the Art and Science of Extreme Long Range Shooting with classroom instruction, known distance gather and unknown distance engagements. ELR II and ELR III progress each student through a more scientific approach with ammunition preparation, Range Estimation Exercises, ELR High Angle Engagements and increasingly difficult target engagements. This ELR I, II and III are all in preparation for the Precision Academy's Masters Courses.
This specialized curriculum focuses on practical and real world techniques and deployment of your rifle. You will be expected to follow instructors' direction and course guidelines which include shooting off on a backpack or other unconventional rests.
