Long Range Shooting class?

Can anyone recommend a LR class that you have taken? I'm looking at the 1000 yard range and to learn the mildot system.

Accuarcy1st looks great but they don't offer anymore classes until 2013...

thanks

If I was going to go to take such a course, I'd pick Rifle's Only.

A thousand yard shot with a handgun is pretty much a waste of time. The velocity fall-off would render a hit pretty much useless.

And with a good .44 Magnum hitting anything smaller than an automobile would be blind luck.

Gordy Gritters advertised a long range shooting school at his place near Pella Iowa. I saw the ad in the VHA magazine.

Check with Uncle Sam. He has a school for that at Ft Benning.
