Long Range Precision 1


Our Long Range Precision (LRP-1), was created by Heartland’s founder & former Army Sniper instructor, Kenny Winn, to serve as the foundation for all LR / ELR & hunt focused rifle curriculum within the Heartland Precision Rifle class catalog. In LRP-1 we provide our students attention to detail classroom instruction on:
  • The fundamentals of marksmanship
  • Basic ballistics
  • Units of measurement (MOA) & (MIL)
  • Wind classification & indicators
  • Data collection
  • Shooter/spotter communication
  • Intro to solvers/ballistic apps
  • Intro to spotting
We then move to the firing line where will:
  • “Fit” shooters to their rifles
  • Adjust/focus scope diopters * if necessary
  • Establish/confirm zero
  • Conduct spotter assisted target engagements
LRP-1 concludes with students conducting spotter assisted target engagements on LR & ELR target's
