Rifle Scope Setup, Zero and Data Collection

270 Stanhope Sparta Rd, Andover, NJ 07821

Saturday June 15th 2024

8.30am - 2pm

This half-day class is designed to provide students with the knowledge of safe handling, rifle fit and eye relief, general operation and nomenclature, data collection, and the ability to zero their rifles out to 100 yards. The class is suitable for complete beginners all the way through to experienced shooters looking to sight in a new rifle and obtain rifle data in order to engage targets at varying distances.

Beginning in the classroom, we’ll go through how to fit the rifle to the shooter by adjusting length of pull and comb height, leveling the scope, and learning about eye relief and eye dominancy. We’ll also review general rifle equipment and usage, range safety, techniques for data collection and boresighting, before heading out to the practical section of the class.

Once at the range, we’ll show you how to zero your rifle using live rounds at 100 yards, how to use and collect data from a chronograph, and how to use that data when shooting at varying distances. We’ll then engage a range of targets out to and including 1000 yards, to confirm if the data obtained was correct and how to make adjustments as necessary.

Returning from the range, we’ll end the class with a Q&A session over lunch in the Griffin & Howe Showroom.
