L101 LR Ballistics Foundation
Date & Time
Burlington, WY 82411
The main focus of the L101 LR Ballistics Foundation course curriculum is to teach our clients the core knowledge and techniques to select and set up a long-range shooting system. This course focuses particularly on external ballistics and the necessary skills to create and use a trued ballistic profile. This course is designed to apply to any and all shooting equipment, not just the specialized "Gunwerks" systems that are used exclusively during shooting exercises.
All shooting equipment is provided by Gunwerks. Using Gunwerks rifle systems and ammunition for this course facilitates and accelerates the learning process. This allows the student to focus on the core class content and leave equipment concerns to the instructor. The rifle and equipment fee is automatically included in the registration. Please do not bring your personal rifle for this course, we've got it covered! Check out the L103 Equipment Readiness course if you are wanting to qualify your rifle.
There are no prerequisites to attending this course. Complete beginners to lifelong shooters and everyone in between will build a solid foundation in long-range shooting and ballistics during the two days of this course.
Long Range University Overview
Long Range University
Our course curriculum is always evolving! Over the past couple of years, we have developed a new organization of training content, facilitating a more focused and progressive learning experience. Now our courses are organized into two parallel tracks, Ballistic Science and Marksmanship Skills, culminating in our Advanced training courses.
The core Long Range University curriculum is contained in our Ballistic Science track. We place a heavy emphasis on the science of long-range shooting. Generally, you will spend time in the classroom introducing concepts, followed by range demonstration and exercise to solidify complex topics.
The second track is our Marksmanship Skills track where we place a heavy focus on developing shooting skills. Light on the classroom, these courses spend most of the time teaching practical applications on the range.
When you are ready to test your skills, we offer several advanced courses to challenge you and your equipment in calculated conditions to refine your experience and capabilities. From mountain shooting venues to pronghorn hunting in New Mexico to a precision rifle competition, we can offer you the opportunity to achieve the next level.

"I wanted to thank all of you for making my recent attendance at LRU both educational and memorable.
The amount of information presented was impressive, and the practical application made it relevant and useful."

"I had my first chance to put both the new skills and my new 7LRM to the test, on a recent pronghorn hunt at 450 yards in New Mexico."
- Jim S.
"Without having the knowledge and skills learned at LRU, there’s no way I would have been successful with those shots.
Special thanks to everyone at Gunwerks who help create the products and teach the skills to make us more effective hunters. Looking forward to putting these to good use, on future hunts!"
