LONG RANGE PROGRAM

In each firearms discipline there are 4 blocks, each block building upon the previous one. At the beginning of each block we cover safety and provide a review of the previous level(s). This provides us an opportunity to address any specific questions or deficiencies a student may have.

Because the Block Program classes are designed to be based on an individual shooter’s firearms experience and skill level, an evaluation will be made at the start of class to assess a student’s needs and determine which Block will be an appropriate starting point.

PLEASE NOTE: Red River West has no targetry rated for .338 or .50.

AMMO NOTE: MATCH grade ammo required for ALL Long Range classes. Please check our AMMO RESTRICTIONS page prior to ordering your class ammo.

(Minimum round count 150-200 rounds - MATCH grade ammo required)
