2 day classes are designed for the novice as well as the seasoned shooters. The class is made so it is simple to understand. Every student leaves with the knowledge and the skills needed to shoot long range. The class is set up to help the avid hunter(s) who want to extend the range they can harvest game ethically.
AFI's long range classes start off with a half day in the class. We will teach you every aspect of long range shooting from the rifle, scope, bullet, ballistics, and proper shooting positions. We also make sure everyone knows their specific rifle and bullet information such as twist rate, bullet length and B.C. as well as the S.G. factor of their rifle and load. We then show students how to take all the ballistics data and put it into whatever ballistics calculator they wish to use, however we also prepare all student ballistics charts for day two.
After the classroom portion of the course we move down range to our ballistics data range. At this range we make sure everyone's scopes are properly installed and adjusted. We then make sure everyone's rifles are zeroed. We teach our students how to properly fit the rifle to the body and how to operate the rifle as if it was extension of their body. We then show our students how to test their scopes to make sure they are tracking properly. AFI also uses Doppler Radar to make sure you have the most accurate reading of your muzzle velocity
AFI has several different long range ranges. Day 2 starts off at what we call the East range. Here was start off with teaching students how to "Read" the environment to get an accurate wind call and how it will effect your round down range. We also teach how angles play into shooting at distance and how to compensate for such angles.
Class price for the two day event is $400.
