      This is my second time taking this course, in the first course I really learned the limitations of my hunting BDC reticle when it comes to longer ranges. For the second class I updated my optics with a Vortex Viper HS LR (FFP), the difference was amazing. The instructor Torrey, took 2 guys with nrand new straight out of the box rifles and scopes. Helped them mount and zero their rifles and had them ringing steel 500+ yards out, that was day 1, Day 2 we did a lot of optics work at different ranges to gather more information on our DOPE. By the end of Day 2 we had already put a beating on the 800 yard steel and Torrey was calling out random targets at random ranges for us to engage with just optic holds and wind calls.
