Shops can only do the minimum when it comes to setting up your new firearm. There is only so much you can do in store.
Scope quickly mounted into the rings, bore zero… it’s really not enough to ensure that your new gun is operating at it’s best.
A day out setting up and shooting your rifle - get a better understanding of its function, capabilities and limits.
Let us take the hassle and uncertainty out of new firearm setups. We can setup, zero, confirm and teach you how to get the most of your firearm. It's a day well spent in a great venue and it will make a world of difference.
Setup and Zero
The first thing we do is make sure the rifle is setup correctly - screws are tight, everything is as it should be.
Then - we zero the rifle.
If you unsure of the difference between MIL and MOA, what distance to zero at, how to adjust your scope, or even why you need to check you zero, don't worry - we will walk you through every step. Learn not only the why, buy how, so next time, if you want, you can do it yourself.
D.O.P.E. and Drop
Traditionally, you would need to shoot at a multitude of distances to gather D.O.P.E - data on previous engagements. These days, with a chronograph, ballistic calculator and a bit of know-how, we can speed the process up.
We chronograph the rifle through the Labradar, and generate a 'try' set of ballistic data. This takes into account local environmentals and is tailored to your firearm.
Confirm to Distance
Nothing beats shooting to distance to confirm your try data. So once the rifle is zero'd and shooting, we turn around and shoot out over the field steel range.
From our main firing point, we can stretch out to 550 meters on targets than, while humbling, represent actual target sizes for hunting. Understand how far you should be shooting, while gathering data on your firearm.
After all the shooting is done, we generate a series of cards for the firearm system - providing shooting data including wind, angle and basic environmental changes.
Depending on the firearm systems intent, we will talk about a range vs. 'hunting' zero - how the Maximum Point Blank System works, and how what you work best for you.
Custom Rifle Turrets
Considering getting a custom turret made up for your rifle scope?
Ballistic turrets are a quick and easy way to have the drop data ready to go on your rifle. Simply range, dial and shoot!
BUT - the info on the ammo box isn't always right - before you commit to the turrets, get your drop for your rifle confirmed!
Come out, spend a session confirming the data you are going to use. Verified drops mean more accurate shooting.
Took my new rifle out to Balnagown hunting to catch up with Kerry and have it set-up perfectly, sighted in and got some ballistic data.
It’s an awesome feeling seeing what your rifle is capable of while shooting out to distance.
Greatly educational at an amazing location. Highly recommend spending a day with Kerry.
