Known Distance Appleseed

This is an intermediate level class for centerfire rifle shooters.  Attendance at a traditional Project Appleseed clinic (25 meter event) is required prior to attending a Known Distance clinic.  This is not a beginner class for new centerfire rifle owners. This is a class for shooters who have some experience with their rifles but who desire to learn effective longer distance shooting. We will not spend a lot of time on fundamentals of shooting as we do at one of our Project Appleseed 25m events.
