“I wish I can try shooting long range without spending thousands of dollars”
“I’ll start shooting once I get a rifle built”
“I want to build a rifle but have no idea where to start”
Most of us in this sport have heard one or all of these statements at one time or another. Let’s face it, getting started in the tactical precision rifle game isn’t as easy as some of the other shooting sports out there. It can be hardware intensive, technical, and just plain expensive.
However, with the support from our very generous sponsors, NCPPRC is able to allow new shooters to experience the Tactical/Practical Long Range sport before taking the plunge and buying your own rig.
Marc Soulie of Spartan Precision Rifles has donated the rifle shown here. It is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, so new shooters will not get beat up behind the rifle or by the wind as much. The rifle is well balanced and can be handled by shooters big and small, male or female.
The specs of the rifle are as follows:
- Chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor
- Manner T6A Stock w/full adjustments
- Custom Marked Bighorn Tactical Action (short action)
- 20 MOA Base
- Bartlein Barrel in a Light Varmint Contour
- Surgeon DBM (AICS Magazines)
- Timney Trigger
But what is a great rifle without great glass? Vortex Optics took care of that by donating a Vortex Razor HD 5-20 EBR-3 scope with rings and all the goodies. The EBR3 reticle is effective and easy to use for new shooters with a mil/mil based system.
To truly make this a turnkey package, Mike Cecil with CS Tactical donated a Harris 6-9 Bipod w/ KMW Pod-Loc, Redman rear bag, TAB Sling, American Defense bipod adaptor, and an AICS 10 round magazine.
For those that wish to participate in our loaner rifle program, you must be at least 18 years old and legally able to possess a firearm. This program is not for those that already own a rifle or need a loaner because their rig is down. This is for people that would like to try our sport out without spending thousands of dollars up front. Your only expense will be the purchase of ammo that we supply at $65 for 50 rounds. The rifle is available for use at our monthly Long Range Practice. You will be under the direct supervision of one of our veteran club members. He or she will be guiding you through the entire process while you are on the firing line.
