This post was inspired by a post on Facebook titled "perfect practice".  When I work out I like to start out with a circuit planned and stick to that. Otherwise I just waste time and tap out early, versus when I have a written plan I am more apt to stick to it. I need to get that going for this precision rifle thing. Let's hear what you all have for ideas to piece together and mix up to make sure your training doesn't get stuck in the prone-rut.

I'll start:
Cold bore at 100 yards - 3/8" Dot. Record POI in data book, and track over time with environmentals noted.

50 yards - (3) 3/8" Dots. One round each,  standing, kneeling sitting. Repeat 3 times.

100 Yards - (5) 3/8" Dots. One round each prone from bipod. Complete reset of position between shots. Repeat as necessary. Record time if possible.

Longer range - 1 MOA targets from barricade positions?

Let's hear it!

Me and another guy are teaching 5 of the Junior Shooters kids to shoot PRS style matches.  We have all five of them headed to the Hide Cup in June!  That said, we have been playing with a bunch of different methods of training, beyond the obvious.

1) I spent a day using .22LR and shooting very small targets from 50 yards.  Everything was positional using props (backpacks, rear bags, etc) for the day, no prone or bench rest.  The kids got a lot out of it, at a fraction of the cost.

2) This past weekend we took the kids out the desert and shot small squirrels (we call whistle pigs).  We have the kids team up in shooter/observer teams and work together to locate targets, range and call the shots.  The kids used .223 bolt guns and/or AR's; again all positional shooting across rope barricades, t-posts, and a ladder.  They each shot about 200-250 rounds and had a blast.
