The Allison Divide Ranch property consists of two major canyons with multiple smaller canyon fingers and gullies representing one of the best training environments available for shooting well beyond a mile. It gets even better, lodging is also included.
THE COURSE: The Effective LR course concentrates on providing shooters with a wind estimation and external ballistics package. Course elements focus on alternate firing positions, effective employment of the AB Solver, and the practical science of long-range external ballistics. AB Trainers build on the shooters’ ability to judge wind conditions and effectively engage targets using alternate positions and methods. The course also covers:

This course is conducted over three days with classroom and range time, culminating with various extended long-range target engagements. Confidently estimate wind deflection, use AB devices, and accurately engage targets using a variety of shooting positions, methods and techniques while pushing your weapon platform beyond extended long-range.
GENERAL: Shooters will receive a course information email a few days after completing the checkout process. The information packet will provide more detailed direction concerning guidance onto the ranch, lodging and kitchen facilities, airports, caliber and weapon system recommendations, equipment suggestions etc.
