Extended Long Range Training Course

Basic Large Caliber Shooting

mcmilla-excursion-image1The McMillan Firearms extended long range training course, offered this year in Phoenix, AZ, is designed to show students that the boundaries they once thought impossible can easily be broken. McMillan’s basic large caliber course is designed to teach students the fundamentals of long range marksmanship with magnum caliber rifles.

The course covers rifle/scope setup and variations, differences in reticles first focal, second focal planes, and implementing MOA, Mil, and other style reticles. The course includes basic ballistics and what affects bullet flight, including how to compensate for wind. Students work with members of the McMillan training cadre to help master the craft of long range precision shooting. In this advanced shooting course, students will push their capabilities far beyond what they thought possible engaging targets out to 2,000 yards with .338 – .50 caliber rifles and everything in between. Contact McMillan to schedule your spot. The course is sure to fill up fast.
