Shooting System Readiness Clinic
This 1-day clinic is your opportunity to gain familiarity and confidence with your rifle and ensure it is ready for your hunt under the guidance of a Gunwerks instructor.
You will confirm zero, chronograph if necessary, and build a ballistic profile in a ballistic app.
Validate the data by shooting at distance, true if necessary, and load into your ballistic rangefinder.
Confirm the system is functioning properly by shooting targets at different ranges using the data generated by your laser rangefinder.
We prefer that you bring your rifle in ready condition. We can provide troubleshooting if you have a Gunwerks system, which is our preference (obviously)! There are no prerequisites to attend any of our clinics.
Long Range University Overview
Long Range University exists for the specific purpose of helping you make quick ethical one shot kills in the field. The core of our content is contained in our L1, L2, and L3 classes which utilize a building block approach to provide education and training in every factor which impacts your lethal hit probability. Interwoven throughout all three classes is a training strategy which will improve your ability to function under pressure and significantly extend the range and conditions under which you can take an ethical shot. At Long Range University you will learn to recognize when the conditions are not suitable to ensure a lethal hit.
You will use our Gunwerks Shooting systems during the L1 and L2 classes, however what you learn will apply to any long range shooting system. Using a Gunwerks rifle system and ammunition for this course facilitates and accelerates the learning process. This allows you to focus on the core class content and leave equipment concerns to the instructor. Put wear and tear on our rifle not yours.
In our L3 class we encourage you to bring your personal rifle regardless of manufacturer. This is where you really learn the capability and limits of your “system” which includes you and your marksmanship ability, your rifles capability, your ballistic program, and your ability to compensate for wind and other environmental conditions, all in a realistic mountain hunting environment.
