Course Description

These nationwide clinics are a great way to better your rifle marksmanship, whatever your current skill level. The goal of Project Appleseed is to give every American the skills to take a rack grade rifle and surplus ammunition and consistently hit silhouette targets out to 500 yards from the prone position using iron sights and no rests or sandbags. You will learn the steady hold factors for the standing, sitting and prone positions, the six steps of firing a shot, NPOA, MOA windage and elevation calculation and a whole lot more. You will also hear stories of the first day of the American Revolutionary War that they don’t teach in school anymore.
