High Angle, High Altitude Mountain Shooting Course with Steve Reichert

Steve Reichert‘s an original badass, a decorated U.S. Marine and unapologetically in-your-face about promoting the kind of raw meat, all-American values sadly lacking in some of our coastal cities. Since parting from the USMC after surviving injuries suffered in an IED attack, he founded and grew one of the most respected training organizations in the country.

Steve Reichert Training has partnered with the Mountain Shooting Center for a training opportunity that's usually only open to elite snipers and instructors. The training theories that have been picked up while on a flat range will be thrown out the window because of the high altitude and steep angles that affect you and the projectile.

Space is limited to five participants, so if you're interested in learning from one of the best– don't drag your feet.

After reading the gear list, you can tell this course is for shooters who have a firm grasp of long range shooting. As Reichert puts it, “This is not a course for a basic shooter. You must have a firm grasp of the basic marksmanship principles needed to make accurate long-range shots. Your guns and gear must be set up as if you were deploying. If you’re an accurate shooter yet are a walking soup sandwich when it comes to everything else, this is not the course for you.”


Mountain Shooting Center (MSC) is a long range shooting complex, located at 9300-feet above sea level. MSC usually hosts “military snipers who expect to deploy to high altitude mountains and who plan to engage enemy at steep angles (up or down), and at long distances.”


In addition to the known distance range, angle up ranges, and angle down ranges, MSC also features night shooting, on-site camping, off-site lodging, and winter training. MSC is in Southern Utah, in the small town of Antimony. Salt Lake City International Airport and Las Vegas International Airport are 4 to 4 1/2 hours drive time to MSC.
