Precision Training Course

Intermediate Shooting

McMillan’s intermediate course is designed to build upon the foundation that the student started building in the basic course. Day 1 is spent refreshing the basics and fine-tuning the student's fundamentals. Classroom curriculum covers using hold-offs, advanced wind reading, use of ballistic computers, and wind reading devices. Students learn quick formulas to convert wind readings into wind holds and increase their likelihood of 1st round hits at longer distances. Day 2 is spent learning and testing lessons learned on wind reading. Students will spend hours reading wind and testing formulas while engaging targets at long range with a focus on mastering wind reading. By the end of Day 2, students should be able to read wind direction and have a working knowledge of identifiers that dictate wind speed and how to convert that for appropriate use and consistent hits. Day 2 has a night fire phase, which demonstrates the use of night vision optics lasers, infrared flood systems and thermals. Students will engage targets out to 800 yards in total darkness. Day 3 covers field shooting, alternate shooting techniques and extreme long range shooting. Instructors will work with students to ensure they engage targets farther than what was thought possible, maximizing the effective range of their rifle systems.

"... The McMillan shooting class surely helped me to take my shooting skills to the next level. I'm ready for hunting season! ..."

"... I had a great time and learned a lot about your rifles, which hopefully will translate into more sales. I got to see first hand what a quality rifle McMillan builds. I came away from the class with a greater appreciation for what a great product an American company in Arizona can build."
