I had the opportunity to attend Jason's class yesterday and it was simply an outstanding learning opportunity for me. We started off in a classroom setting on a white board where Jason went through nine principles of precision rifle shooting to ensure a proper foundation of knowledge before we even took my rifles out of the cases and to ensure common communication. He covered ballistics in very good detail and I thought I knew most of this (I hold a BS in Engineering Physics) but he took it to another level in very practical terms which has helped me gain a much higher level of understanding of what is going on down range with the projectile. Once we got the rifle out on his shooting platform Jason checked my scope alignment, which I had recently installed, and it turned out I had it canted despite all efforts with levels at my house. Jason fixed my scope alignment quickly and then bore sighted my rifle and the fun began getting me spot on at 100 with elevation and windage calls. He has tremendous knowledge of DOPE for 6.5 Creedmoor (my caliber), 260 Rem and 308 and the initial adjustments for each range out to 800 were spot on banging steel consistently out to 800 with his calls on wind all while he was checking and correcting my form, loading of the bipod and trigger pull. This was an awesome experience and I now have DOPE on this rifle and load (at this density altitude) along with the confidence to make these shots.

Don't think Jason's training is just for target rifles/scopes as all this easily translates to rifle hunting with normal hunting scopes and this will help me extend my personal maximum hunting range. I highly encourage others to take advantage of this one-on-one training as it is both fun and educational. I will take additional training to learn techniques and proper form for other shooting positions.

Thanks, Jason, for an outstanding experience!

I'm probably just missing something, but where is this class, who teaches it, etc?

If I ever make it back to the DFW area, I would like to take this course. Sounds like a good one.
