    Unknown Distance Extreme Range Shoot
    Possible Night Long Range Shoot

    This shoot will take place in field conditions at an altitude of 7000’. We will be shooting from various shooting locations at ranges from 990 yards to 2645 yards. This will be a live fire symposium on extreme range shooting and the special considerations that must be given in that environment. As SOE’s shooting location is very similar to the operational environment in Afghanistan, the shooters will see the extremely harsh conditions that our military’s snipers must face to be successful.
