L104 Long Range Muzzleloader
Date & Time
Burlington, WY 82411
The main focus of the L104 LR Muzzleloader course curriculum is to teach our clients the core knowledge and techniques to select and set up a long-range muzzleloader. This course focuses particularly on the theory of the muzzleloader, muzzleloader safety, cleaning and maintenance, external ballistics, and the necessary skills to create and use a trued ballistic profile.
This course is designed around the Gunwerks Muzzleloader System, however, the bulk of the content is applicable to any muzzleloading system. If you haven't purchased a system, you can rent the equipment and supplies for this class. Choose the appropriate registration fee.
Because we will spend so much time on muzzleloader-specific topics, most of the shooting and ballistics content are high-level reviews. You will benefit from previous attendance to L102 Fundamentals of Marksmanship and/or L101 Ballistic Foundations, however, they are not prerequisites.
Long Range University Overview
Long Range University
Our course curriculum is always evolving! Over the past couple of years, we have developed a new organization of training content, facilitating a more focused and progressive learning experience. Now our courses are organized into two parallel tracks, Ballistic Science and Marksmanship Skills, culminating in our Advanced training courses.
The core Long Range University curriculum is contained in our Ballistic Science track. We place a heavy emphasis on the science of long-range shooting. Generally, you will spend time in the classroom introducing concepts, followed by range demonstration and exercise to solidify complex topics.
The second track is our Marksmanship Skills track where we place a heavy focus on developing shooting skills. Light on the classroom, these courses spend most of the time teaching practical applications on the range.
When you are ready to test your skills, we offer several advanced courses to challenge you and your equipment in calculated conditions to refine your experience and capabilities. From mountain shooting venues to pronghorn hunting in New Mexico to a precision rifle competition, we can offer you the opportunity to achieve the next level.
