The SPR-I course is a three day (over 24 hour) course that will give you the theory knowledge, shooting practice and the ballistics skills needed to reach Steyr's accuracy potential of 600 yards and beyond. In our personal trainer environment with at most 7 students, our expert and Steyr's Training Academy director Eduardo Abril de Fontcuberta will insure results for all participants. He is a long-range world champion that has over 25 years experience as a military and police sniper instructor and armorer, and is one of the World's Extreme Long Range leaders. He is dedicated to teaching you a no-nonsense course, including rifle marksmanship, fundamentals, and the knowledge to be able to make your own super-accurate paper and electronic tables, as well as understand how and what different factors affect your shooting. At our dynamic classroom sessions and during range practice, he will adapt to your needs and cover fundamentals of marksmanship and components of successful long range shooting. This includes wind estimation, ballistics know-how and software options, new hardware and optics, and a Steyr Logbook for data collection. You will learn how to properly zero your rifle, select the best zero distance for your application, and test your scope and rifle performance accurately. During the course, you will have access to the latest equipment available to long range shooters. You will also learn how to select new equipment on your own, as well as refine what you already have. If you don't own a Steyr rifle prior to the course, you can rent one of our Steyr Pro THB models for the duration. Other rifle models are available on request. By the end of the course, you will be able to operate with confidence on your own when shooting targets or hunting.
Steyr Precision Rifle I is a stand-alone course for those wanting to become better shooters at ranges beyond typical hunting and sports shooting. The SPR-I course can also be the gateway to more advanced courses such as Steyr Precision Rifle II (SPR-II) and our Steyr Tactical Rifle (STR) course.
Class begins at 8:30am and lasts until approximately 5:30pm each day. This is a performance-oriented course, so expect to spend more than the planned 24 hours with us. If you plan to travel home by air on the last day, please be prepared to stay in class until 5:30pm. If you have any special travel requirements or limitations, don't hesitate to ask.
Steyr rental rifles are available for a reasonable fee that can be used for the duration of the course. Match ammunition is included with the rental. During the registration process, please select a rifle type you wish to reserve for the course.
This course is the perfect place to put your own equipment to the test.
