Our second longrange film picks up where the first one left off. That time we dealt with the basis and laid a foundation for the beginner. This time we add some difficulties. If Longrange Shooting from Scratch helped you get started, we hope this film takes you a few steps further!
We've filmed a longrange competition in northern Norway. The shooters are put to the test when they shoot against the clock with high pulse and in various positions. The weather both at the match and later is wetter and windier than in the first film. As the terrain varies the challenge gets harder. Eventually fatigue and cold prove to be bigger problems than some comparatively uncomplicated moving targets.
Solid routines help to get things right under pressure. We stick to that idea. We use the wind rules from the Longrange Shooting from Scratch, but we also demonstrate the less known vertical components of wind drift. We throw in some completely new and simple ways to correct for changes in temperature and air pressure, as well as an efficient system for handling various ranges when you are in a hurry. All in all we believe you will find more than a few ideas to test for yourself!
Why carry more if less can do? THLR RAPID RANGE is a combined rangecard and log that systematically gives you a better workstream, logs your trajectory and helps identify shooter errors. As we are very much fan of combination tools, it also measures your shooting angle/ incline, support your cross-valley shots and mirage assessment, have your lead data ready, calculate crosswind component, measure map range and help you do a very quick range estimation on certain targets.

This THLR infocard is credit card sized and evolved from practical experience as demonstrated eloquently by Thomas Haugland. We find his workstream and practical accuracy excellent. Thomas himself says that observing what the wind does to the vegetation is extremely effective up to 5-6 m/sec winds (capable of 0,5 msec resolution with experience), but above that he recommends using a Kestrel to get a better starting point.

Longrange shooting from scratch is produced in cooperation with one of the top longrange instructors in Scandinavia, Thomas Haugland. It will show you step by step how to become a confident longrange shooter. The first step is very basic and about learning to use your present equipment, polish your shooting position and not least your mindset. At the next step you'll shoot to establish a true trajectory and calculate how to correct it for weather and steep angles.
This little card does three thing: Helps you practice calling your shots, logs your misses and help you analyze your shooter errors in order to improve your shooting position. This is the same exercise you saw in the film “Longrange Shooting From Scratch”. Learn More
