Extreme Long Range | ELR

Our Extreme Long Range (ELR) curriculum was created at the request of numerous students and for those who have a “Big Bore” or magnum rifle sitting in their gun safe.  We know that a quality rifle, scope and ammo combination are capable of amazing precision and capabilities down range, and when you place a Heartland Precision Rifle instructor on a spotting scope behind you, those capabilities begin to manifest at extreme distances down range; 1,000 to 1,800 yards.  We will provide you the knowledge, instruction and the resources to make the longest shot you have ever attempted.  

Our ELR class was designed as a natural progression style course of instruction, and requires students to be versed in the Fundamentals of Marksmanship, scope utilization, basic wind reading, shooter / spotter communication and an understanding of ballistic technology integration.  We recommend that all students come through our Long-Range Precision 1, 2 and 3 classes as they lay the groundwork for all competencies required for this specific curriculum.

Due to the technical requirements of this training, and the challenges that Nebraska winds can often present, we run small 6 person classes / sessions which allows us to provide more individual attention to our students.  We run half day sessions for this specific curriculum, 4.5 hours in the morning and again in the late afternoon.  These time frames help us avoid early and mid-afternoon, which are often the windiest parts of the day.  

*We train to standard, and not to time…if we need to train longer to put you on target, we will.

Rifle and scope rentals can be facilitated with prior coordination; don’t let a lack of equipment stop you from training

We have the ability to pick you up from the nearest airport if you are flying in for a course; requires prior coordination

4.5 Hrs


LRP 1, 2, & 3 Recommended

training objectives

  • Advanced Fundamentals of Long Range Precision Marksmanship
  • Technology Integration
  • Shooter / Spotter Communication & Spotting Skills
  • Advanced Ballistics
  • Data Gathering, Data Confirmatin, Scope & Reticle Manipulation on Targets from 800-1800 Yards

Equipment Needed

  • Rifle capable of shooting groups of 1 MOA / 1” at 100 yards; if you have a question on the capabilities of your rifle or caliber, simply contact us…we’ll get you an answer
  • 60 – 80 rounds of MATCH GRADE AMMUNITION, reloads / hand-loads are welcome; no steel core or penetrator ammo…we prefer no holes in our stee
  • Only rounds with extremely high Ballistic Coefficients should be fired in this class, they are typically some of the heaviest grain offerings in your caliber of choice
  • Reputable and purpose built target / tactical scope that has been properly mounted; must have adjustable target turrets in either MIL or MOA adjustments
  • Scope should be a minimum of 18X power, more power is recommended
  • Absolutely no BDC reticles, and “custom” turrets are not recommended
  • Quality rings and base for your scope *Torqued to specification and secured with Blue or Purple Lok-Tite
  • Ensure that your rifle is zeroed at 100 yards, if not it will eat into your range time. If you cannot achieve a 100 yard zero due to scope base cant, know your zero range and/or 100 yard offset
  • .50 BMG is the largest caliber we allow on the line, exotics and all magnum rounds are welcome; ballistic performance is the key, “fast and heavy” is often a good rule of thumb
  • Bullets / Projectiles need to have a retained supersonic velocity, approx. 1,125 fps, at 1,200 yards…contact us if you have a question or concerns
  • Must have enough elevation adjustment between the correlation of your round and your scope, mount and base combined to reach 1 mile targets…call with questions

Optional Equipment

  • Bi-pods for your rifle
