Small world, I also was in that class and I agree with Joe and Shay all the way. The best thing about the class, in my opinion, is that you don't have to have the latest and greatest stuff. I talked to Jordan and Jason several times before the class because I shoot the wooden stocked 30-06 pictured. I can't say that it is a 1 MOA rifle every time I shoot it but J&J said to bring it and we will get an idea what range I can shoot consistently. I was really happy because I could hit targets out to 400 and 500 yards really well, thanks to the help of windage calls from every one that was there and the SHOOTER app which was dead on for drop data. I also shot out to 950 yards on the second day and the most adjustment I had to make at any range was from the wind.
I also liked that there was not one product that was being promoted ( read "shoved down your throat) over another. I looked at several schools that had good reputations but wanted you to shoot their rifles. Jordan said that they started the class to teach people how to use equipment they already had and work up to the more expensive stuff. Although I will say that the dominant optic brand was defiantly Vortex. I am just as guilty because my rifle and spotting scope are both Vortex.
You just bring what ever you have and figure out what works and what dosen't.
The food and accommodations where top notch and I would love to go back again.
The only thing that I would do differently is the 1125 yard target. We where fortunate to be able to shoot one of the instructors new .338 Lapua which was dialed in spot on. Everyone was scoring hits on the target including me. I shot my rifle at the 950 yard target but I did not shoot at the 1125 yard target. It would have been nice to try something that far with an experienced spotter calling adjustments, even if I was just burning powder and lobbing bullets . I also don't know of a place to shoot that far.
I had a great time and met a bunch of good people. I would defiantly recommend the class to any one that is thinking of it.
I am going to get some targets and start practicing at the local range.
