Barrett Long Range .50 BMG Course



I'll be attending the Nov 6-8 Long Range 1 3 day 50BMG caliber rifle training course sponsored by Barrett Rifles in Raton, New Mexico with my Barrett model 99.


I've ordered the Leupold 4.5-14x50mm w/ mil-dot scope which is recommended by Barrett to be sighted for 300 yrds when you arrive to shoot. This scope is shown here:


Course topics include:

* 3 Day Course (24 hours)
* Barrett Rifles Familiarization
* Cleaning and Maintenance
* Rifle Set Up
* Marksmanship Fundamentals
* Intro to Data Collection
* Basic External Ballistics
* Intro to Wind
* Live Fire on 1000 Yard Known Distance Range

Anyone can attend their courses. They hold them in Tenn and NC as well. NC would not be prohibitive for you sunshine staters. You don't even have to have a Barrett, they'll loan you one for the training for 200.00.


I bought that particular Leupold as Barrett suggests it in their advertisement. Learning to read the wind and ajdusting for temp variables is something that will be covered in the course, [ probably classroom and on the range ].

Holding Counter-Sniper certification in Va. through Heckler and Koch's training division since 94 with a PSG-1 308; having shot expert at 500 rds with irons in the Corps [ 69 ], and presently shooting irons out to 400 yrds with my M1a's fairly regularly even now, the 1000 yds will be a new challenge and the main reason I'm attending.

I'd like to thoroughly learn the rifles breakdown, maintenance and operation which they'll cover also. It's just going to be a good heads up on this rifle and I wasn't aware Barrett put these courses on until fairly recently.
