About Course

Tactical rifle scopes are meant for tactical situations where the importance of a first round hit on target is far higher than consistent pinpoint accuracy. As a result, these scopes also offer advanced features such as range estimation and holdovers which compensate for bullet drop and wind drift. But aside from these generally well-known features, there are many other choices that need to be made when purchasing an optic for this type of use. In addition, there are some useful tips, techniques and accessories that will help you to utilise a tactical rifle scope to the best of your ability, and with the highest success rate when doing so.

This course will not only highlight the requirements and recommended features when selecting a tactical rifle scope as a new buyer, but it will ensure that each student who succeeds in completing the course will depart with a much deeper understanding of what the tactical rifle scope is, how to properly use one, and what accessories and practical techniques you may employ to make first round hits more achievable.

So if you are able to admit that you knowledge on modern rifle scopes is lacking, or if you would like to learn some tips and techniques that may help you when everything else is working against you, then enrol in this course and let’s get started.
