Experience Overview

 The L3 Mountain Shooting Application was introduced in 2021, and we revamped it in 2022 by increasing it from a two-day to a three-day class. In our L3 class you will transition from the comfortable learning environment to a realistic training environment. 

  • You will learn how to apply your wind compensation skills in a complex mountain environment where wind velocity profile and vertical wind become significant factors in your lethal hit probability. 

  • You will learn shooting positions specific to shooting at the steep angles of a mountain environment, and how the inclination of the shot affects the trajectory of the bullet.

  • You will shoot multiple different scenarios which are designed to help you learn to recognize what combination of conditions allow you to take a shot with a high lethal hit probability. 

Prerequisite Classes. 

L1 and L2. This is an advanced class and without the foundation of advanced ballistics knowledge and wind compensation taught in our L1 and L2 classes, even advanced students will struggle and take away from the learning experience of the other students. 

Long Range University Overview

Long Range University exists for the specific purpose of helping you make quick ethical one shot kills in the field. The core of our content is contained in our L1, L2, and L3 classes which utilize a building block approach to provide education and training in every factor which impacts your lethal hit probability. Interwoven throughout all three classes is a training strategy which will improve your ability to function under pressure and significantly extend the range and conditions under which you can take an ethical shot. At Long Range University you will learn to recognize when the conditions are not suitable to ensure a lethal hit. 

You will use our Gunwerks Shooting systems during the L1 and L2 classes, however what you learn will apply to any long range shooting system. Using a Gunwerks rifle system and ammunition for this course facilitates and accelerates the learning process. This allows you to focus on the core class content and leave equipment concerns to the instructor. Put wear and tear on our rifle not yours.

In our L3 class we encourage you to bring your personal rifle regardless of manufacturer. This is where you really learn the capability and limits of your “system” which includes you and your marksmanship ability, your rifles capability, your ballistic program, and your ability to compensate for wind and other environmental conditions, all in a realistic mountain hunting environment.
