Precision Rifle Setup @ Governors Gun Club Kennesaw
Mar 21 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Precision Rifle Setup

If you have always wanted to purchase a long gun and shoot far range but didn’t know where to start this is the class for you.  Whether you have a long gun or not this class will cover all the basics needed to put a shot down range accurately.  The course will be taught by Governors Gun Club’s long-range shooting experts with years of experience.

Our team of experts will get an understanding of each students needs and discuss what long rifles, calibers, optics, and accessories would be best for their long-range shooting goals.  Instructors will show students different types of precision long rifles and their setups for the intended goals along with providing real world knowledge to ensure their long guns will hit the target.

Students will spend discussion time in our classroom discussing the needs for long range shooting.  If students have rifles, they would like to bring, our instructors will help with the rifle setup, help to sight in the rifle and spend some time on our 100 Yard Range, so ensure you bring some ammunition for long gun.  Eye and ear protection will be available at the club for everyone to be on the range and learn from the experts.

Items to be covered:

• The lands and grooves of a rifle – what they are and why they matter such as “1 in 12 right hand twist”
• What caliber is best for shooting long distances and why
• Precision Rifle Chassis or Hunting Rifle, which should I use
• Basic optic functions and usage
• Basic optic focusing and turret manipulation
• Breath control/trigger control
• Why humidity, temperature and barometric pressure matter
• Why having data on a cold bore shot matters
• Basics on how to call wind
