This class is based on the utilization of Low Power Variable Optics such as 1x4, and 1x6 scopes in an urban area. Fixed low power scopes such as ACOGs and magnifiers can be used to accomplish class goals. Scopes such as 3x10 scopes are not recommended. The student should have basic rifle handling skills and be able to shoot five round groups that average 3 to 4 inches from the prone position at 100 yards.
The course will focus on engagements from 50 yards to 200 yards to include target identification. Positional shooting will be stressed at 100 and 200 yards. The emphasis for this class is enhanced accuracy and identification of threat targets at intermediate distances. The course will conclude with a qualification drill so students can determine what skills they will need to work on in the future. The course requires 300 rounds of 223 or 556 ammunition.
