The Designated Marksman Rifle/Special Purpose Rifle (DMR/SPR) course curriculum is designed to provide the student with the fundamentals of marksmanship and tactical employment of the DMR/SPR type weapon systems in offensive and defensive operations at mid ranges. This course can be considered an introductory level precision rifle course and is an excellent stepping stone prior to attending Long Range Precision 1. While basic weapons and optics manipulations will be covered, it is recommended that the student have a solid understanding of the basic function of their chosen weapon system. Attending a basic carbine manipulation course such as Magpul Dynamics Carbine 1 is also highly recommended. The student should expect to participate in weapons manipulation drills and should be able to demonstrate safe weapon handling skills at all times. The student should expect target engagements from 50 to 600 yards.
The DMR/SPR course requires either a Designated Marksman or Special Purpose rifle. These weapons are gas/piston operated and can be classified by their level of accuracy, mostly falling within 3 Minutes of Angle (MOA) or better. Most gas/piston weapons today are capable of well within 1 MOA using Match ammunition. AR-15/M4 platforms with 16” and longer barrels, SCAR’s, ACR’s, M-14’s, M1A’s, M1A Scouts and Mini -14’s are all within this class of weapons. Optics for these weapons mainly consists of variable power optics in the 2.5x – 10x, 1x – 6x, 1x – 8x or similar magnification. Optics such as 1x – 4x or fixed 4x are not recommended; however the course can be completed successfully using them. (Positive target ID and point of aim become difficult past 450 yards.) These optics should have a reticle system that is capable of estimating ranges to targets using either the Minute Of Angle (MOA) or Milradian (MIL) system. It is highly recommended that the student bring along any special tools required to adjust/manipulate their chosen telescopic sights. It is also recommended that the student have on hand the optic’s instruction manual to assist in identifying reticle subtensions and zero-stop procedures if they are not already known.
The student should expect moderate activity levels during this course. The student will be expected to negotiate stress drills designed to place the shooter under both physical and mental stress for a short period of time. Most of the range time will be spent in standing and unconventional shooting positions. The curriculum is balanced with classroom lecture and practical application drills to directly reinforce the topic discussed. Magpul Dynamics provides a complimentary Rifle Data Book to each student. For the majority of the course the student will be co-located with their vehicle. The student should be self-sufficient with an ample supply of water and chow for lunch.
