***PLEASE SEE THE RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST to ensure you have the right rifle and kit for this course.***



1. Rifle

A) Rifle should be of sufficient quality / condition to consistently shoot 1 inch groups at 100yds.

B) Rifle Calibers allowed in this course: Minimum: .243/6mm; Maximum: .300 Win Mag (consideration for potential muzzle blast fatigue on the shooters next to you)

C) Stock or Chassis design requirements: Must be able to attach a bi-pod and should feature an adjustable cheek comb

2. Optic

Scope Quality: Overall quality & mechanical precision will be paramount to success at long range

A) Magnification:

  1. for Variable Power Optics: need to reach at least 10X (power ranges such as 5-25X may be ideal)
  2. Fixed Power Optics: 10X minimum, no more than 16X

B) Reticle:

  1. Must have vertical and horizontal subtensions.
  2. Mil or MOA based units are both fine
  3. Scope should feature ‘matching units’ between the reticle and the turrets - if possible.

C) Tube Diameter: 30mm Minimum, larger tubes are generally preferred

D) Turret Adjustments:

  1. Must offer ‘tracking graduation repeatability’ (see attached video) – MOST IMPORTANT
  2. Turrets that exhibit good ‘tracking precision’ are greatly preferred
  3. Turret adjustment units that match reticle subtensions (Mil/Mil, or MOA/MOA) are greatly preferred
  4. Zero Stop mechanisms are very helpful

E) Sufficient Turret Elevation Adjustment Range for your cartridge and load: (enough for 1,000 yards – minimum).

Example: .308 Win with 168gr match bullets typical need 37.5moa at 1,000 yards, if your scope only has 50moa of total internal adjustment that gives you only half of it (25moa) as your useable elevation adjustment (which is not enough). Thus, for this example, you would have to select a scope with at least 75moa of total internal adjustment (1/2 of 75moa is 37.5moa) OR you could add a 20moa tilted scope base to add to the 25moa usable elevation giving you (25moa in the scope + 20moa tilt on the base) = 45moa total usable elevation, which is then sufficient to get you to 1,000yds in this example.

3. Ammunition

A) Ammunition Requirements (3-day class): Bring at least 250 rounds of Match Grade Ammo, preferably configured for long range shooting, no steel core ammo.

4. Peripheral Equipment

A) Bipods: Students must bring a rifle bipod. Recommended brands include Harris, Atlas, or similar quality brands.

  1. Leg Lengths: 6-9" may be ideal for this course, 9-13” (for some larger framed shooters).
  2. No long legs or extra-tall bipod configurations.
  3. Features: Swiveling/canting design highly recommended.

B) Toe Support: Some type of rear bag or shooting sock.

C) Shooting Mat: style and quality is user’s preference

D) Hearing protection: Please bring adequate hearing protection that does not inhibit proper cheek weld to your rifle stock.

E) Spotting Scope: Please bring a spotting scope with a tripod if you can. Rex will be teaching bullet trace observation, fire-correction, and mirage reading to shooters rotating off of the firing line. A spotter of at least 20X is recommended.

F) Weapon cleaning and lubrication equipment to include a rod to knock out stuck cases

G) Eye Protection

H) Raingear

I) Hat / Sunblock

J) Drinking water (camelback strongly recommended).

K) Bug Spray

L) Pen and Paper

M) Calculator

N) Mil-Dot Master (Optional)

O) Copy of ballistic tables (optional - if previously created – we will be creating and truing your ballistic tables at the class)

P) Kestrel Anemometers, Ballistic computers and other related equipment (optional)

5. Physical Fitness Requirements:

A) Must be physically able to lay prone for extended periods of time as well as get into and out of the prone position repeatedly. Be ready to shoot all day, even if potentially less than ideal temperature or precipitation issues ensue. Take precautions for any pre-existing medical conditions. Be prepared for less than ideal weather conditions and potentially warm or hot weather.
