Precision Rifle 1 is a 2 day 16+ hour course held at Del Norte Gun Club, Rio Rancho, NM. PR1 covers topics such as selection, maintenance, reticle selection and employment, MOA/MRAD characteristics, external ballistics, wind effects, marksmanship fundamentals, zeroing, engagement tactics and techniques specific to the precision rifle, and employment of artificial support such as tripods.
