I believe a class from a reputable source would greatly expedite the learning curve and would have helped me on some screw ups. After watching John B.'s "Beyond Belief" video I became interested in increasing my range limitations. I had reloaded for many years and posessed basic loading skills and fairly good rifle skills. John's flaws were easy to see so I ventured to the computer to find better advice and found this money pit of a site. My first custom rifle arrive at the end of Oct. last year. Our deer season opened the second weekend of Nov. and I had been absorbing as much info as I could from here. Since I commercial hunt I don't generally shoot bucks but does are fair game. The first one was a 750 yard one shot kill and the second was 1007 yard 1 shot kill. Not too bad for no class and a few days practice. My rifle, like Nyles, has cost me about $4500 for glass and all so take that for what it's worth.

Shawn, I think a lot of us look in on this site to learn about your business, and Kirby's business, and any other business that's related to accurate long range rifle shooting. How else are we going to find out about all the interesting things available out there? For instance, your classes sound like a great idea, but I wouldn't have known about them if you hadn't mentioned them on this thread.

Please don't be reluctant to write about your business.

I've attended Shawn's class and really liked it. Money well spent. thanks Shawn!

What is amazing is the price for what you learn. From my communication with this gentleman, you learn how to shoot at long range with a custom load, reticle, and rifle in 30-378 Weatherby.

What is not considered is temp, pressure, humid, and wind. Rather everything is just a "hold and hope" type of shot.

It's amazing what some are selling as a long range class. The price!!! Wow.

I wasn't going to come right out and say it but since it is out from shortshooter.... It is obvious from pictures on the website the rifles are ballistic reticule versions. Now if you are going to go the BR route having a taylored load to match the reticule is critical, but most people here know how I and most others feel about drop cams and balistic reticules. There is technology being developed to soon be released for a balistic reticule scope that has a way to correct for conditions. More to come on this later. Until then I believe that there are no effective short cuts for just learning how to shoot.

I have been to schools that taught good techniques and some that taught not so good techniques. Just be sure what you are getting.
How often do you have classes?
