Steyr HS .50/.460 Course

(Up to 600 yards)

SHSC (Steyr HS .50/.460 Course) is an advanced two day stand-alone course focused in teaching the Steyr HS .50 or HS .460 shooter all they need to know to shoot their rifle with confidence and hit the target reliably. Our head instructor Eduardo Abril de Fontcuberta will teach theory and practice including: big bore shooting, operating in teams, shooter and spotter roles, advanced positional shooting, .50 BMG & .460 Steyr ballistics and wind reading, so the student can maximize Steyr's accuracy potential. You will be able to operate with confidence, shooting in teams and operating in shooter and spotter roles once you are back home with your Steyr HS rifle. You will also learn how to identify the limitations of your rifles and optics and decide what long range shots are feasible. The only limitation will be the range. This is the perfect course to advance your shooting to the state-of-the-art and have the knowledge to keep developing your skill for years to come.
