Scope Mounting & Zero Procedures
Course Length: 2 hours
Long-range precision shooting begins with setting up your equipment correctly and accurately. Is your base torqued to spec? Are your rings aligned properly and lapped to handle continuous shot to shot recoil? Ever wonder how to bore-sight your firearm and zero it to ensure first round impact on target for your next trophy elk? No idea what any of this means? In this class you will learn how to select the right optic/rings for you, how to properly mount a scope to a rifle, the basic mechanics/operations of scopes, and zeroing procedures. A must for hunters and anyone looking to get into long-range shooting or have experience and want to polish their skill-set. Taught by the former marksmanship instructor at the Marine Corps Sniper School in Camp Pendleton, CA, this class will familiarize you with the basics of setting up and operations of precision optics in a simple to understand and hands-on learning environment. Subjects covered include:
– Attaching bases
– Mounting rings
