THE COURSE: The Effective LR course concentrates on providing shooters with a wind estimation and external ballistics package. Course elements focus on alternate firing positions, effective employment of AB Solvers, and the practical science of long-range external ballistics. AB Trainers build on the shooters’ ability to judge wind conditions and effectively engage targets using alternate positions. Push your abilities and weapon platform to consistently bang steel out to 1200 yards.
AB Trainers provide concentrated instruction of external ballistics elements, AB Solvers, alternate firing positions, and refinement of accuracy and precision. This course will continue to build your knowledge and abilities, while trainers introduce more challenging long-range engagements to test your skills.
