Optics Academy

Precision Scoped Rifle 1 (PSR-1)

This is the first course in our precision scoped rifle series.

In this course, you will learn the in-depth function of the optical system, proper mounting of a scope, set-up of the firearm system to the shooter and basic fundamentals of precision rifle marksmanship. You will also learn the basic skills needed to calculate long-range ballistics and how to build data for your system that can be adapted to varying atmospheric conditions. By the end of the course, you will know what makes a quality optic and what to look for when purchasing a scope for your rifle. Regardless of experience and skill level, this course is the perfect course to build the necessary foundation for long-range precision marksmanship and understanding the shooting system as a whole.
