    Looking forward to it. Feels like it's going to be a great year for Tac Driver and PRS in SA

    With the range restriction to 600m on one day events I think even the hits of a 223 will be reasonable to spot, if you can hit it.

    (I tested this with my semi shooting a 69gr at 2800fps and I could hear and see my hits on a 300x300mm plate)

    Personally I think a 223 gas gun is somewhat more than 1 shot behind a bolt gun. Speed is lower as well as accuracy. The advantage of quick/more follow up shots are now removed ...

    Hopefully I can make it to some events this year!

    Honestly... your local 100m range.

    Sounds crazy, but it works.

    Check out this video of the 65Guys training barricade.

    btw: you don't need a barricade, there are lots of 'props' at your local range.

    Biggest thing is not to sit at the bench and punch endless groups... that's meaningless training.

    Simple exercise:
    Get prone behind the rifle, shoot 1 shot, jump up, do a jumping jack, then get back down prone and shoot another shot.
    Keep it under 1 MOA, and see how fast you can fire 6 shot. (set a PAR timer if you have one).
    Alternatives:
    - 1 shot prone, next shot off bench (standing)... rinse, repeat
    - Prone, 1 shot strong side, then 1 shot weak side
    - etc

    If you can think it, so can the Match Director.

    If a training institute is what you're looking for, Tac Driver (www.tacdriver.co.za) is now running training courses focused on Long Range Precision Rifle down in the Cape.
    - Intro to Precision Rifle
    - Intermediate Precision Rifle - Barricades / Position shooting
    - Advanced Precision Rifle - Extended Long Range & High Angle

    In Joburg you can speak to Sean at www.longrangeshootingsa.co.za for similar type courses.

    I'm not sure who does similar in the KZN area ? (Any recommendations ?)
