Just returned from a long range training event with Sniper Country in Utah. It consisted of several firsts for me:
1st hit at 500 yards from an unsupported position.
1st hit at 1800 yards.
1st time I spent so much time in the cold to shoot things that I could not eat.
We were using Desert Tactical Arms SRS rifles in .338 Lapua with Surefire Supressors. One of my 100 yard five shot groups was less than a 1/2 inch and THE ONLY way to shoot a .338 Lapua is with a suppressor. These rifles are very unique with their bull-pup design that allows for a shorter overall length and for easy cartridge conversion.
Sniper Country is a great training facility that will be offering courses for law enforcement, military and police and even hunters. For more information on Sniper Country contact Nick Young with Desert Tactical Arms.
Cody Carroll, one of the instructors, was a sniper in Afghanistan. He is one of the best firearms trainers I’ve received instruction from. You’ll be hearing more about Cody for sure…And not just from me.
I’d tell you more but I’m still not warm and my knees ache from all the hiking up steep, snow covered mountains.
