500 yard / 600 Yard Rifle Range Certification for MRPC Members


This certification is ONLY required to use the 500 / 600 yd line for unsupervised practice and is ONLY available to MRPC Members.
This certification is NOT required to participate in matches at MRPC that use the 500 / 600 yd line.
During the certification process you will be instructed in the safety procedures to use the 500 / 600 yd lines including closing the driveway and use of the gate and lights.
In addition to the safety procedures you will have to demonstrate that you can keep all your shots on the target at those distances.

On the day of the certification class:
Classroom instruction will start at 9am at the Club House and will consist of a short introduction and questions.
After the classroom instruction, each student will shoot prone at 300 yds to establish a good zero.
Each student will then will be required to adjust for 600 yds. In order to qualify a student will have to be on target in 2 shots and then put 10 shots in the scoring rings on a standard 600 yd target from the prone position. If the student uses a rest they will only be certified to shoot 600 yds with a rest. If the student doesn’t qualify they may attend the next class and try again.  No advanced registration required.  Contact with any questions.
First you will establish a good 300 yd zero and then have to adjust your sights and hit the target at 600 yds in 2 shots and then keep 10 shots in the scoring rings.

Three certification classes are scheduled for 2015.
