Riflecraft 551:

.308Win - 7.62 NATO

Field Shooting Clinic - 1 Day


$275 Basic

$760 Inclusive

Have you tested your complete semi-automatic or .308 bolt gun precision rifle system out to 1000 yards under real world field conditions?  Do you want to challenge yourself and build essential rifle marksmanship skills? Are you ready for a truly enjoyable precision rifle shooting experience? 

This Field Shooting Clinic is designed for shooters with semi-automatic and bolt action .308 caliber rifles desiring to refine their long range shooting skills on targets sighted from 100 yards to beyond 1000 yards.  This is not a “square range” shooting clinic.  It focuses on shooter development as a system (e.g. shooter, precision rifle, optic, ammo, ballistic calculator) in a field shooting environment. Riflecraft Field Shooting Clinics are conducted entirely on the range, hands-on behind your rifle.  This .308Win / 7.62 NATO caliber specific clinic will expose shooters to a variety of precision long range shooting equipment, wind and environmental conditions at all practical engagement ranges for the .308 Winchester cartridge.
