Below are details for the 2020 Precision Rifle Expo Educations Course.
Instructor: Troy Lawton, Director of Ballistics for the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU).
Understanding reloading, perhaps one of the single most complicated discussions and debates outside of ballistics, often proves challenging for even veteran precision rifle shooters who constantly try to absorb new information and developments in reloading components and equipment. To help you understand reloading, we asked the man behind the ballistics lab for over 30+ years at Fort Benning, and the Director of Ballistics for the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU), to come back again this year and provide courses for our attendees... Troy Lawton. Troy hand loads and tests precision rifle ammunition and firearms every day, and his experience from shooting competitively with the US Shooting Team to multiple NRA High Power categories including Match and Service Rifle, make his knowledge on the subject both immense and extremely valuable to precision rifle shooters looking to either learn how to reload or to just maximize and better their current reloading methods. Troy's courses will include but not be limited to:
Instructor: Emil Praslick
from Berger Bullets
Perhaps the single greatest adversary to any precision rifle shooter, reading wind and understanding the winds influence on a bullet’s trajectory remains one of the single greatest challenges to any long-range shooter. So, we’re bring back one of the best wind coaches in the world to help you understand wind, Emil Praslick with Berger Bullets, Lapua, & Vihtavuori Powders. Emil is well known in the long-range precision rifle game. A former head coach of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU), wind coach for the Applied Ballistics LLC Extreme Long Range Shooting Team, head coach for two U.S. National Long Range Rifle Teams, and with over 30+ years of experience and accolades, Emil will be returning again to the Precision Rifle Expo this year. He’ll be giving multiple courses, both Saturday and Sunday, on “Wind Reading,” and helping you to better understand and implement strategies for dealing with wind. Attendees will learn and discuss several key topics for the course, that include:
Vortex Optics has also stepped up, and graciously offered to bring plenty of glass for students to look through during the course, giving you the full visual experience.
Instructor: Jesse Rambo from Bore Tech
Come join Bore Tech for The Precision Rifle Maintenance Seminar as we take an in depth look at the recommended procedures to properly clean and maintain today’s precision long range rifles.
This class will be a hands-on, live demonstration providing proper cleaning and maintenance techniques while discussing current topics such as barrel break-in, cleaning frequency and proper
During our time we will dispel the many “myths” of gun cleaning and try to shed light on what it truly takes to keep your precision rifle accurate and performing at its peak.
Care and maintenance of the following areas to be discussed:
Come see why Bore Tech products continue to be the #1 choice for today’s top shooters who quite simply want...the best.
Instructors: Katie Godfrey & Austin Wilcox from Kestrel Ballistics
Kestrel Ballistics Weather Meters, the weather meter chosen and trusted by precision rifle shooters around the world for their extreme ruggedness and dependable performance, would like to help you better understand and utilize your Kestrel to maximize your shooting experience and long-range accuracy. During the Precision Rifle Expo, Kestrel Ballistics will give attendees an opportunity during two separate courses each day, to learn and operate either the Kestrel 5700 Elite with Applied Ballistics®, or the Kestrel 5700 with the new Hornady 4DOF®, with demo units being supplied for participants to use during the course.
Katie Godfrey from Kestrel will discuss, demonstrate, and assist course attendees with...
Austin Wilcox from Kestrel will cover Kestrel's latest offering, the Hornady 4DOF, which will include...
Both Kestrel and Applied Ballistics will also be on hand at their exhibitor booths, to assist in answering any questions that you may have before and after the course regarding their products.
Instructor: Scott Peterson From the US Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU)
Understanding how to put your sight on target, and fire the rifle without disturbing the sight, is crucial to being an effective marksman. Proper setup of your precision rifle, aiming, breathing, trigger control, and follow through are FUNDAMENTAL and perhaps the most important elements of a marksman's foundation for building upon. Scott Peterson is an accomplished professional shooter, with an comprehensive amount of experience in long range precision rifle competition and shooting instruction. Scott serves in the U.S. Army, was a member of the USMC Shooting Team, is a current member of the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) and he's acquired numerous wins and top placements in multiple disciplines including Highpower, Palma, PRS, and various mid to long range precision shooting competitions.
Instructor: Chris Wiencke from Applied Ballistics Training Division (ABTD)
One of the best questions a shooter can ask is "How do I calculate the most accurate firing solution to achieve more first round target hits at LR?" With the Applied Ballistics solver integrated into so many devices, it's no wonder shooters are seeking out any information involving the correct solver calibration and verification procedures, and what solver inputs really matter for hitting small targets at long range.
ABTD Training Manager Chris Wiencke explains how the AB solver uses the shooter provided inputs to calculate firing solutions for various ballistic effects, what inputs matter and when second order effects such as spin drift, aerodynamic jump and Coriolis Drift need to be accounted for leading up to a target engagement.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the following topics:
Although some of this is rocket science, you don't have to be a scientist to attend. Join Chris to discuss the best solver employment practices for hitting smaller targets at longer ranges!
At the Precision Rifle Expo, no personal Firearms will be allowed on the ranges.
