1000-yard Rifle Range — Berm has finished construction, working on shooting platform and target stands. Opening Spring 2015.
Long range rifle facility
North Carolina’s fastest growing members range, Frontline Defense, has started construction on its 1000-yard range. This is in addition to the already completed 100-yard and 300-yard rifle ranges and our 300-yard tactical training range. We proudly offer a variety of shooting scenarios for all stages of shooters, from beginner rifle to the advanced marksmen.
Drawing from the extensive military backgrounds of our instructors and RSOs, Frontline Defense has designed our ranges not just for long-range rifle competitive shooters, but also to provide long distance shooting in real-world scenarios.
A key aspect in the design of our 1000-yard range is to keep it as challenging as possible for the shooter by using natural surroundings, vehicles, mock buildings, rough and uneven terrain. This will give a long-range shooter of any skill level a challenge, whether they are seeking training, shooting in competitive rifle matches, or just want to have fun with their large caliber rifles. Frontline Defense will provide the steel targets necessary for long-range shooting.
In addition to the 1000-yard rifle range, shooters will have the option of various shooting positions ranging from 300 yards to 800 yards designed to provide different shooting angles back to the main 1000-yard rifle berm. There will also be an additional 1,000-yard rifle range with unknown distance targets. 50 caliber and .338 lapua’s are allowed.
Long range rifle training
Frontline Defense owner and head instructor, Paul Smith, graduated as the Distinguished Honor Graduate of the U.S. Army Sniper School, commanding the Ft. Rucker SRT Sniper Team. Smith is also a graduate of the FBI’s Advanced Marksmanship Training. His real world training brings valuable experience to the classroom. With addition of staff members who have served in the Special Operations community, you will receive the best training at Frontline Defense Firearms Training Center and Range — one of NC’s fastest growing outdoor shooting facilities.
Through our dedicated instructors, our long-range rifle training is designed to take any skill level, from novice to experience long-range shooters, and hone their skills. In addition, our field craft training will teach you the skills needed to survive in a hostile environment or natural disaster.
