Project Mapleseed is coming to the RFGL
Project mapleseed is coming to the RFGL on June 30th 2020.
Project Mapleseed’s website:
A Project Mapleseed event is designed to provide structured and safe rifle fundamentals to hunters and shooters of all ages and provides a solid framework of basic rifleman skills that benefits new and experienced shooters alike. For the new shooter, we can teach you to use your rifle safely and also be able to hit your target. For the seasoned shooter, we can teach you to shoot more accurately – even out to 500 yards.
The emphasis on teaching traditional rifle marksmanship within Project Mapleseed centres around traditional rifle marksmanship techniques using a rifle sling coupled with a concept termed “natural point of aim” (NPOA). Project Mapleseed uses reduced size scaled silhouette targets that enable a shooter to assess their effective range with their rifle using a reduced length shooting range only 25 meters (82 feet) long while simulating firing at full-size targets at ranges up to 400 yards.
The ultimate goal of a “Mapleseed” is to teach students to maintain 4 minutes of angle (MOA) precision and accuracy, This translates into being able to put all shots into a 20 inch at 500 yards. Qualification targets are shot to evaluate progress and for a score. The goal is to score 210 points or better on a 40-shot course that has 250 possible points. This earns the coveted Rifleman’s Patch.
