What customers have to say about us:


Sorry I took so long to write this note but it has been a very busy week for us.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for you hospitality and instruction on how to "really" shoot a rifle. It is not often that I am impressed with people who teach others because I did technical instruction for many years in the oil and gas business and typically have a hard time listening to others teach me about anything. I always show up with an open mind but they lose me quickly because they are usually not really experts in their field or they are poor communicators. My experience with you was totally different!!!

You obviously knew your business very well and had a your entire course with us laid out in advance with milestones and successes for us along the way to motivate us. You were able to keep us engaged the entire two day session and had us wanting more! I have not learned so much new stuff in many years in such a short period of time. My expectations for myself were pretty low as I have never thought of myself as a "Good Shooter" with a rifle. I have been shooting a rifle for over 40 years and realized that I didn't know much about how to do it correctly. I thought my old "hunter grip" on the rifle was they way to do it. Boy was I wrong!

My confidence has grown more than you can measure. Your simple step by step process of getting ready for the shot made a huge difference in my shooting ability. I went from thinking there would be no way that I could make the long shots to realizing that if I follow the routine, hitting the target was entirely possible, even probable. That is a major change for this "Old Dog". I was entertained by you when you knew I was doing something wrong and all you had to do was stare at me, get me to focus on the routine, and I would make the shot. Brilliant!!!! I guess "Old Dogs" can learn new tricks! Too bad I don't have you to stare at me all the time, ha!

Without a doubt, I will be coming back for more instruction and try to improve even more. You have sparked a fire in me for long range shooting that I will have for the rest of my life.

Thank you so much for your patience, straight talk, fellowship, and sharing your wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend your course to anyone that wants to really learn to shoot. I will most likely bring my 82 year old Dad next time and see if you can teach an "Older Dog" how to shoot.

Joseph and I had a great time and have talked non stop about the experience. I have the flattened 50 cal. rounds on my desk and every time I look at them, I wish I was back at the range. We can't wait to do it again.

Please feel free to post this on your web site.

Thanks again,

"I'm so glad Jeren got home and did most of the typing - I echo all his thoughts. Jay "Cowboy" Ruby and Chuck "Ice Man" were just awesome. Chuck is the toughest man that I know!

Training Synopsis:


The Training session at North Texas Precision Rifle was a Christmas gift to my sons: Jeren and Josh. Ok, couldn't pass up a chance to train with Jay again so I tagged along. Josh and I had been to a mini training - a range day that my nephew had won at a match and I have been to a training session previously. Jeren had not been to a training session at NTRP. All of us have shot in Texas Precision Rifle and PRS matches so none of us were completely newbies. Jeren and I were carrying new rifles for the 2013 season.


Jay begins his sessions with a 5 shot string at a 100 yd target - the only instruction is shoot the smallest group that you can. The purpose of this is the evaluation of your manipulation of the rifle, i.e the fundamentals. After this exercise, your performance is evaluated and discussed. This gives Jay the information to determine where issues exist and where to start you're individual training. It is important to note that even there were three of us there; Jay treated the training as if you were there all by yourself. From previous training, Jay does an exceptional job of modifying the training to fit the individual.

Another note - because all three of us have shot and competed: after the five shot exercise we were given the next two pieces of information:

1) Because we had experience: all exercises that were normally performed at 300 would use the same size target at 500.

2) And that: " All Excuses have the effective range of zero." "If you miss; we are going to stop and you are going to tell me why you missed and I don't know is not an answer."

Point number 2 was the highlight,most helpful and enlightening part of our training session in my opinion. Again it demonstrates how Jay modifies his training to the individual. During both days, Jay held true to his word - if you missed; you better have an explanation! Under Jay's watchful eye he listened to your explanation and offered anything that he saw during the exercise. With the experience level that the three of us have - this was unbelievably helpful.

At the end of Day One - you have the night fire exercise. As always - it reinforces that importance of a good position and is just awesome to hit targets even after the lights go out. But shooting with my boys - what is even more awesome to to have the lights go out, hear three rifle reports and see three splashes ( sparks off the targets)down range. That is truly awesome!

Day Two - begins with another cold bore; in this case a Frozen Bore shot. Wind and environmentals had a big affect this day. Most of the day was dedicated to barricade work. Again, when things got too easy - Jay put us under time constraints that we would see in competitive matches. Another example of how Jay constantly modifies his training to meet the needs and ability of the client.


I can not say enough about the quality of training or the facilities. Anyway you look at it - they are first rate. If you have training planned; strongly consider NTPR for your training needs. Spending the weekend shooting with my sons - priceless! 
Thanks Jay.

"This past weekend three members of the Franklin Militia went for a training session at NTRP. My dad has trained with Jay before and he knew what to expect, however, I did not. I have taken several other firearms classes and I always try to approach training with an open mind so that I can get the most out of it. That being said, I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge and the presentation of that knowledge this weekend. It's like a light bulb automatically kicked on after listening to Jay explain things and then apply them. The way he worked with us, broke the information down Barney style for us slower individuals, and made it easy to understand was second to none. Overall I had a great time and I feel much more confident in my abilities to drive my rifle.

Here's how it went:

We started at about 0800 with a verification of our zero. We then discussed the fundamentals of building a solid position, "breathe in, breathe out, straight back and hold," and we covered the wind/mirage. We did several exercises to make sure we understood the importance of getting solid on the rifle. I found that I did this crazy thing with my strong hand grip and trigger manipulation. We got it mostly worked out after Jay threatened to beat me with a Dewey rod if I did it again. Fear is a great motivator! I found that this was causing me to push the rounds to the right and magically when I went straight on the trigger they appeared on target. Go figure. Next we started collecting dope for our rifles out to 1350 which is the longest distance I have ever shot. I had a third round hit at 1350 on a 20"x20" plate. I call that a win for me because the wind was kicking my tail all day. After that we went to work on the barricades and some timed events to see how we did with that stress. I quickly learned that I had not been getting the best positions possible in the past. For example, using the barricade and squaring my body to help drive the rifle. I learned many, many valuable things during this portion of training. Through working with Jay, my weaknesses became very apparent and then through instruction I saw them become less and less. This finished out the daylight part and then we moved into the night fire. During this I saw how the good solid position worked because I got several hits after the light went out. The first time I did this was pretty cool because all I saw was the sparks down range in my scope. I would pay for the class again just to get to the night fire part.

I woke up sore and tired but ready to get on the range. We started off with the cold bore shot and the term "cold" does not do it justice. It was about 30 degrees and a wind chill of close to 24. We were all chilled but we proned out and with Chuck on the scope in his Tactical Artic Cargo Shorts we started sending rounds. The wind had shifted and was causing the rounds to impact a little low due to the billowing tail wind thus showing me the effects of wind even at short distances. Best piece of advice on wind, "Think of it as water and how water would flow over the area where you shoot." After the cold bore we went to some center mass flapper work. I really enjoyed these flappers and the challenge of the wind while trying to get these center mass hits. After that we went to work on some more barricades and the improvised positions that can get you just as solid as traditional ones. I enjoyed learning these new positions because they encouraged thinking outside the box but made perfect sense. I was surprised at how I was able to achieve successful hits out to 500 using these positions. After that he opened all of the range up to us to work on whatever we wanted. I used this time to hit the barricades that gave me the most trouble and to work on my off side shooting from those barricades. That concluded our training.

Things I learned-

1. Trust your gut instinct because if it isn't right then it is probably close.

2. Practice like you want to shoot.

3. Concentrate on the fundamentals and your Pre-Flight checks because these will help you in all shooting.

4. "Don't be afraid to miss."

I learned a lot more than that but these are the things that I think will help everyone. I learned a lot of personal things like body position, grip on the rifle, how I approach the rifle, etc that will effect everyone else differently. I would never have found these had Jay not pointed them out.

As I said before, this training was like none I have had in the past and with Jay's instruction I saw vast improvement in my shooting. Thank you Jay and Chuck on helping us out and we appreciated all the time/effort put into it. If you have a chance to go see Jay then I encourage you to do so. You will not regret it.

"Great training day NTRP. Top quality facility & top notch training. The tips you gave me on reloading and tactical carbine (while we were shooting the sh*t on a break) was worth the fee alone. Looking forward to April! Thanks mate.
Paul R."

"A couple of months ago I signed up for a NTRP training class at the recommendation of a few folks; my goal is to attend a few different training classes and getting various viewpoints and learn techniques from shooters/instructors that are reputable. Either thru word of mouth or seeing them at matches, etc. NTRP with Jay was my first class.

My goals were simple. I want to become competitive, not just attend matches. I’d like to sell for more than $9.99 (or hell be willing to bet on myself) at a Calcutta. I knew I had to begin to break all the bad habits I knew I had, and the ones I didn’t know I had needed to be identified since I was self taught on all of this long-range shooting.

We started off the first night setting up the range, generating a computer-modeled dope chart (I use shooter) and then verifying it to real-world data. I usually shoot within 700 yards or less and the dope on shooter is pretty much within +/- 0.1 but as we begin to stretch out past 700 to 1350 it became evident that I need to tweak shooter (MV, BC, etc..) because the real-world numbers started varying by up to a mil and more than real-world data. (Shooter was putting me higher and higher than I needed to be)

If any of you saw me at the first club match I looked like a monkey fucking a football on the barricades; all of my practice had always been prone and I was shooter #2 (Behind Elpers) and I didn’t get to watch and absorb other peoples position… Jay spent a lot of time with me looking at barricades and talking thru some things to look for to build your position properly. Looking back I would have shot almost every barricade I’ve been on differently.

We went thru the typical situations like shooting sitting, kneeling, weak side and how to put together a mental checklist before you make your shot. This made a big difference to my ADD and helped slow me down and keep focused on the shot I was taking and not worrying about the next shot. 2 hits are always better than 5 misses.

After some of the basics were out of the way we spent time talking and looking at ways to use the rifle to your advantage on certain barricades and then put that into practice shooting his rooftop, various concrete barricades, the car, etc…. The whole time the heat index was about 108 with no wind so we used portable ez-ups to try and bring some shade where possible.

I learned a lot and need to practice to reinforce it all which is why I am so grateful to the TxPRC monthly matches and I continue to build new barricades and put them at the local range I have access too. I will spend another weekend with Jay for sure and will take training at other places as well to get different perspectives and see other facilities but I would have no problem at all recommending anyone to Jay’s facility. 

The whole time was very cooperative. I told Jay when it was time to move on to a new topic and I told Jay to hold up while we went back and re-inforced or tweaked that lesson. He let me drive the tempo and pace which was a huge benefit of the one on one training. I never would have been able to tell a whole class to chill out while I went back and re-ran something or to hurry them past something that I had a good grasp on. 

Again, all in all no complaints at all and I would have no problem at all recommending this class to anyone looking to get some initial education or a veteran looking to go hone in on some skills.

David D."

"It's been several months since I attended the training at NTRP, but I've done my best to stay in practice with the fundamentals learned during the courses. I posted in the Hunting Section after I realized that lessons learned with my bolt gun translated to better handling of my shotgun during turkey season. Well, once again, I wanted to inform anyone that might be on the fence about attending training with CKA that I saw real results from attending the training. I recently attended annual in-service for my job and I saw definite improvement in my long gun & pistol handling during qualification. I have been doing this since I was 21 and have always held my own shooting for score, but I saw how lessons learned with my bolt gun helped my form and trigger control with all my weapons. You have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain by spending a weekend with CKA."   John in LA

"This was an outstanding weekend - a nephew of mine won a range day with Jay at North Texas Rifle Precision and I was fortunate enough to be asked to tag along. Jay and his operation are nothing short of exception and is only overshadowed by Jay's personally and passion for long range tactical shooting.

While this was not a formal training class; Jay took the five of us throught basic fundamentals and with the goal of getting dope for our rifles. There was a personal review and recommendations for body position, trigger finger and hand position and breathing. After about an 30 minutes we began working out to the 750 mark. As a personal note, I am very new to this type of shooting and 400 had been about my personal limit. Using the techniques and fundametals under Jay's watchful eye - I got solid dope to the 750 line.

After lunch, we returned to the range and began to work at the 1000 yd tower. It seemed like in very short order, all of us had worked out to a 1000. I'll have to admit, it was something that I had alway wanted to accomplish and hitting the 8" plate at that range was unbelievable. After we had established our dope; Jay opening the line to engage targets at any range. It was during this time Jay slung his 260 from the sitting and hit the 8" plate at 1000. After seeing that, I couldn't stand it so I gave it a shot. With Jay's help, I was sucessful at the 700 and 800 yd targets but that damn 8" is still safe today.

I will highly recommend Jay & NTRP to anyone looking for quality trigger time and instruction. I will be going back for a class & that 8" plate is history!

Jay - Thanks again. It was a great time." - Jim H.

"Thank you for the review and your hospitality CKA. Andrew and I had a great time.

We both learned a lot and I have been working on the techniques you showed us (especially after observing your skills with a pistol at 300 yards). 

Just like Chuck Norris, what most people consider rifle range, CKA considers pistol range.

You are a true professional, put on a great course, and have an outstanding facility. I look forward to watching your business grow."  Nick and Andrew from San Francisco, CA

"I have been shooting for many years and have received formal training with pistol, shotgun and semi-auto rifles through my job. A few years back, I bought a .308 bolt gun with the intentions of learning the craft and loading my own rounds. Of late, I seemed to have hit a plateau and just wasn't satisfied anymore with learning by my own mistakes. Last October, I made the commitment to myself to seek out some formal instruction and finally see if I could gain some ground.

I looked around and read multiple reviews online and in magazines about a formal precision rifle training course. I was looking for something that was reputable, semi-local (within reasonable driving distance) and in my price range. My research lead me to one of our fellow Hide members training at North Texas Rifle Precision. Of course, since becoming a member of this forum, I had seen his humorous posts and frequent ban sessions. One thing I noticed after speaking to him on the phone about the possibility of attending his training was that Jay (NTRP-CKA) knew his craft and had no instructor complex.

I signed up for the Precision Rifle 1 and Precision Rifle 2 courses and locked in the last weekend in January. I spoke to CKA several times by PM and on the phone ensuring that I had all of the gear that I needed for the courses. He talked to me about my equipment and verified that my hand-loads were sufficient to reach max distance. I arrived in the afternoon on Friday and CKA took me on a tour of his facility and we reviewed his steel target locations. Everything was loose and he fell in with the kind of guys that I run with at work. The first training morning, his demeanor remained loose, but his dedication to safe training in a professional manner was evident. He still kept you at ease, without compromising safety.

Our first rounds down range verified my zero. He adjusted my scope location and we started on the fundamentals. I had a bad run and was about to take up golf, when he got my mind right and within a couple of hours, I was on target at 750 and 1000 yards. It was nothing magic. He showed me how to overcome 30+ years of mistakes and bad habits. I was truly amazed at how much I progressed in a short time by having someone move me in the right direction. There are numerous targets to engage, that keep you challenged.

I would highly recommend attending the training at NTRP to anyone who is wanting to show improvement in your shooting or to anyone who is starting new. The number one reason that training is a success or failure is dependant upon the student. If you cannot become comfortable enough to allow yourself to learn, you won't succeed in your endeavor."  John G. from New Orleans, LA

“Just wanted to give a very positive public thumbs up for Jay(CKA) and North Texas Rifle Precision. I got to take the steel on target class last friday and managed to learn more in about 8 hours of shooting then I have in the past year and a half of trying to figure stuff out on my own.

Showed up early but the fog kept us from starting for an hour or so. Instead we decided to BS a little bit and check the basics of form both body and trigger finger/hand. 

About 9am the fog cleared and we decided to go hot. The first half hour of shooting was disappointing as I couldn't connect at 200 yards which should have been cake. We double checked my zero which was bit off and double checked my chrono numbers and then got set back up on the MSTOMP. After that it was bang and clang time. 

Its really is neat to know that in the morning I was having trouble seeing my hits even at the 400 yard target and by the end of the day was able to see hits at 200 easily even when doing rapid fire strings!

Anyhow we engaged steel from 200 out to 750 which is 250 yards farther than I've ever shot before! He has a nice setup of targets, some reactive with hostage or center mass flappers and some basic lollipops and steel squares.

We eventually proceeded to positional shooting. Sitting, Kneeling, and Standing and was able to make consistent hits at 200 yards from all positions. I've never had a chance to do much positional shooting before and one on one instruction far exceeded my ability to get the ideas from books and online.

Once my hand hurt enough and my arms were a little shaky we decided to set up for the infamous golf ball shot. I honestly didn't think I had much hope for smacking this thing at 750 but the angels smiled the stars aligned and I center punched the little bugger! To make it even sweeter we actually found the bullet that hit the golfball! I know this may seem a little gimmicky to some but it really helped reinforce the idea of aim small miss small. And for the next hour or so when I'd flub the occasional shot I was reminded that I just punched a golfball at 750 so there was no excuse for missing at the shorter ranges!

We then ran some quick fire drills as well as move and shoot type drills to introduce me to some competitive shooting simulations as well as get the heart rate up. These had me running to the gun and shooting rapid fire prone then moving to the trailer and shooting prone/unsupported then sitting supported, standing supported, and then another run and sitting unsupported.

This was my first formal shooting course but Jay is the kind of guy that makes people feel comfortable immediately. My equipment was pretty basic but you quickly realize how important the Indian is instead of the arrow. 

I'm missing allot but throughout the day we also discussed

Mil Ranging and using the Mildot master
Data books and what where to put in them
Wind reading using mirage as well as whatever else is available
shooting equipment
and a ton of other stuff besides just pulling the trigger.

Anyhow thanks Jay for the great day and awesome instruction! I'm looking forward to doing it again! And for those of you on the fence dont worry just do it. I shot the day with a stock rem sps tactical and bushnell elite 4200 scope. Go with an open mind a full ammo bucket and learn!  Mike, Lewisville, TX



“Hey guys and gals wanted to give my props to CKA for my day at the range so here ya go.

First off, Jay treated me like I was a best buddy. (Only way I can describe it) he did not talk down to me just because he knows more about shooting than I do.... once I got up and running (ie warming up his steel) he gave me hell when I missed (like a buddy would) and would correct my observed mistakes.

My common miss was high left (caused by trigger slap) was fixed.. I shot very well for me when I got locked in. It took a whole can of SH SLAP OFF and a good swift kick in the ass for me to quit slapping the boom lever!

We shot prone, positional, timed stress postional. I learned a few tricks and applied them to making me a better marksman. By the end of the day I was locked in (and sore as hell). 325 total round count of .308

Conditions were windy as hell 10-20 all day, but I am actually thankful for that as I learned to make better calls and holdoffs because of it!

Equipment: .308 rem 700 sps trued in AICS CHASSIS. Nightforce NXS 5.5X22.

And now for the finale......the golfball shot!
Wind required 3 moa left wind , 23.75 moa comeup for 760 yrd shot.

Jay on the spotter "send it". Boom. "Holy shit" Jay exclaimed "you just cold bored a golf ball @ 760 yards". I saw the ball skip off the dirt mound through my scope and almost shit myself!! We drove down and sure enough I grazed the side of it! (I knew I should have used BUTTER FLAVORED WINDCHEATER)

Anyways, one of my best days as a shooter......a little lucky too!

Thanks Jay for your time and making a friend for life!  Clint D. Rusk, TX



“I had a chance to take NTRP's full weekend course and I cannot recommend it enough. Below is a short review.

Day 1

All the boring and tedious tasks required to be successful on day two including; Chamber measurement, brass trimming, chamfering, deburring, bullet and powder selection, charge throwing, COAL, and seating depth. Jay has all the tools to make this process precise and quick as well as the tools you and I use. We loaded up 150 rounds, 50 for ladder testing and 100 for target

Day 2 

Awesome! I'm a new shooter and this was my first time shooting prone. My group size started at about 1.5-1.75 and by the 3rd group was down to about .5 MOA. After ladder testing a bunch of loads we found one that was acceptable in both accuracy and velocity. Before the firing exercise we discussed trajectories, made a drop chart, and explored wind reading. Then we moved on to steel on target. With Jay's wind calls I shot 350, 580, 650 and 750 in a variable 20 mph wind without difficulty. And then there was the golf ball shot. I didn't hit it. I was all over it but not right on top of it. With the wind it was like the ball was being moved between shots, come to think of it I'm not entirely sure there wasn't a gopher out there moving the ball......f*ck that golfball.

As for the instructor; Jay's instruction is clear, concise, and respectful. He's a committed and dedicated instructor, even taking a day off work to complete the course when our original range day was postponed due to some errant tornadoes.

Bottom Line: You're reading this for a reason, lay your money down and take the course, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks again Bud.  Sean, Ft Worth, TX




I have recently completed Jay's Reloading and Long Range Rifle 1 Course. And I have to say that it was beyond what I imagined. You start by getting to know Jay Ruby and if you have a pulse, you will like him immediately. Second, he will give you the standard Safety Briefing and his personal dos and don'ts. After that have your notebook, tape recorder, and memory ready because the information will come quickly. The speed of instruction is not a bad thing. We covered ground that was a refresher for me. He slowed down when we started crossing into the processes I was less familiar with. Though I set the new worlds record for the slowest reloading, but Jay didn't rush me or take over as often happens when someone that is experienced deals with someone who is not. I finished the Reloading Course with 200 rounds .308 and confident that I could go home and replicate what I learned on any caliber I own. That night Jay checked my rifle, scope, and gear for the next day. RANGE DAY.





Precision Rifle I, began by confirming my 100 yard Zero. I had never fired match grade ammo before and my groups were AMAZINGLY small (for me.) At this point Jay started showing me how to work up a load based on the ammo I made the night before. With chronograph set and targets hung, I started learning how the process works. I saw the the numbers that were best and that became MY load. We then moved back to the firing line and started the fun. My first block of instruction was in wind reading. The environmental conditions that day were not bad, but they weren't good either. There was a steady 10mph cross wind and it rained on and off. To me, this was another outstanding aspect of the training. How often do you shoot in PERFECT conditions? Probably not often. Within 3 shots I knew the effects the wind had on MY bullet and could still engage the steel, even as the wind gusted. From there I started engaging Steel reactive targets from 300 yards to 500 yards. This developed more confidence in myself, equipment, and rounds. Jay was there every shot coaching, mentoring, and teaching. And.... reminding me to breathe. By the time I was on my second box of 100 rounds I was hitting a 6 inch target at 800 yards. We took a break at this point and started playing with a pair of Bushnell's Fusion LRFs. I was throughly impressed.
At the end of the break I was introduced to positional shooting. I figured I would have been good at it, having done it for years in my current line of work. But there is a DIFFERENCE in positional shooting with an M16A2/M4 and a Remington M700, IOR Scope, and Harris Bipod. But the method, tips, and tricks Jay taught had me hitting steel again, repeatedly. There was never a range, position, or condition that Jay did not shoot first, to show me that it could be done, on my rifle, with my scope zeroed for me. I never questioned his method because it worked for me. We finished the 100 round box with only a hand full of fliers/missed rounds. I feel bad for Jay in this because I took my time with every shot and he called them all. We were able to pack up and get headed back to McKinney, Texas before a MASSIVE rain storm hit. 
My final thoughts on NTRP courses are, if you are looking for the BEST 1 one on 1 instruction don't look any further. After the classes were done, I would have gladly paid twice what NTRP charges for the quality instruction I was given. Not once did I ever feel like I was anything but the center of attention of NTRP. I also don't feel that there were any "Secrets" that were not imparted, and no special ways to go about hand loading or shooting he didn't teach because one day we would be on the competition firing line together. I know that NTRP taught everything he could. Forget the distance you may have to travel, forget the time at work you might miss, go to and get signed up for a class. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Chances are you will be like me and already be signing up for Long Range II. On a personal note, Jay and Mrs Ruby are the nicest, most sincere people you will ever meet. If you don't walk away with two new friends that treat you like family, you probably need to have your heart examined, because it isn't beating.

5 GOLD STARS. I will use NTRP again and again, or until Jay tells me to go away." David G. El Paso, TX

"This past weekend (10/9-10/10) I took Jay's reloading classes 1 & 2. Also, class 3 Field load development. Before taking these classes I did some reading so that I would have an understanding of what I would be doing. Jay was very informative and covered a lot of information. He even gave advice as to what he has tried in the past for greater accuracy; what worked and what didn't work for him. The reloading classes gave me the confidence I was looking for to be able to reload ammunition. 
The next day we went and did the Field Load Development class and Jay's range. He walk me through the different rounds I had made up the day before and what I should be looking for to gain greater accuracy. He was very informative; even gave pointers on breathing and how to grip the stock when pulling the trigger back to get more accuracy. This class gave me the confidence to test my loads and to get the most out of my rifle.
After we finished the load development part of the day it was time to shoot another golf ball. I had the opportunity to shoot a golf ball the week before with my .308 and it took 37 175gr and 13 155gr plama before I hit it. I was a little disappointed that it took so many rounds, so I wanted to try it again. This time I was shoot my 6.5x55 swede and my hand loads I hit the golf ball in 10 rounds of 140 gr A-MAX. This time was actually more challenging because the wind was shifting every shot.
I would suggest these classes to anyone who is new to reloading. If you take Jay reloading classes you'll have gain the knowledge on how to reload safely and also CKA years experience will help you out because of all of his knowledge he passes onto you. If you have been loading your own rounds and have found it takes a long time to develop a load for your rifle I would suggest Jay's reloading class #2 and the Field Load Development class. You can gain a tremendous amount of knowledge from these classes to help find out how to develop your loads quicker. "  Jamie B.  McKinney, TX

I had the opportunity to go to Kaufman, TX and train with Jay of North Texas Rifle Precision at his private range. The range is a great shooting area that offers a 360 degree berm that is about 15’ tall and is close to 800 yards long. He setup about 20 steel targets in the basin ranging from lollipops, to hostage flappers, reactive targets, know your limits and several more. The MSTOMP was placed on one side of the berm and we used it to engage targets from 200 yards out to 750 yards. I took the Steel on Target course. 
Since this was my second time to train with him he spent a couple of minutes analyzing my trigger finger angle making sure that I had a good 90 degree angle in it and that I was straight behind the rifle. This was beneficial to get confirmation that my shooting position was correct. We then progressed quickly and thoroughly through various topics including milling targets, analyzing the mirage and attempting to make wind calls based off of the data. I say attempting since I have a very hard time seeing and reading the mirage. That is one of many items that I took away from the course that I will continue training to become more proficient doing.
The great thing about training with Jay on a one-to-one basis is his ability to tailor the class to meet your needs. For me that included a significant portion of the class devoted to positional shooting. He spent a lot of time working with me on my position, getting my sling adjusted correctly and showing me tips on body positioning. We started off with the sitting position, progressing to kneeling and finally standing. The information that Jay poured into me during this time was outstanding. He didn’t just teach, he also brought out his AR-10 and proceeded to nail the target 9 out of 10 times while in the seated position. Watching him gave me the confidence that I needed to persevere and continue until I was consistently hitting the target.
After the positional shooting, he setup a mock match stage for me to practice safely transitioning to different positions while applying the pressure of the shot timer and focusing on accuracy in very awkward positions. This was a great addition to the session as he was able to comment on little things that drastically increased my success in subsequent runs.
Finally, we concluded the day with his trade mark golf ball shot. I love challenges and let me tell you, taking on a golf ball at 750 yards with a 308 is definitely a big challenge. After burning up “several” rounds, I finally hit the ball. That was a huge confidence boost for me and it was a great way to end the class.
I would highly recommend any of Jay’s classes. His instruction is tailored to meet your needs in a one-on-one session and the wealth of information and effort that he pours into it is amazing. Thanks Jay, I thoroughly enjoyed the class and look forward to the next one."  Jonathan B.  Huntsville, TX

"A golf ball target out to 700 yards!  I can hardly see it much less hit it.  I couldn’t believe it.  Jay had walked me to learning how to hand load just a week ago.  He had walked me to finding a correct load for my hand loads and my particular rifle.  He had guided me to “reading the wind” had challenged me to put up with the ever changing weather conditions that had plagued us from early morning to early afternoon.  Now the sun was shinning again and the heat was building up.  I could see and read mirage in my scope.  Just earlier, Jay had instructed me easy to understand wind reading and what mirage meant and how to use it to my advantage.  After hitting metal targets at 475, 575 and 700 yards without difficulties, he now challenged me to hit a golf ball that laid out at 700 yards from me. 


I picked my target of the two golf balls he had laid at 700 yards.  First fire, I’m to the left.  He spots for me but he didn’t see it.  I was aiming at the ball to the right and he was looking at the ball on the left.  I hadn’t called my target.  But I corrected and mentally went through what he had covered and I learned that morning.  I send out my second shot and it falls an inch to the left of my target.  He sees it and calls the slight correction.  I make a very minor adjustment and I once again I go through the steps he had taught me.  Using my new trigger hold, breathing as he advised, positioning myself correctly, I send my third attempt to the golf ball target.   I keep watching it through my scope as he had been prompting me do and BINGO! There it is, a 700 yard golf ball shot!  The ball flies and I land in cloud nine!  I still am!


The class was great, without it, I would have taken lots longer (and spend lots of more money) before hitting a golf ball size target that far out.  I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to go from newbie to hitting small targets with confidence at extended ranges.  And learning the ins and outs of how to achieve that in a matter of hours, not weeks or even years!  Even an experienced shooter who want to hone their abilities or move to the next level would benefit from your courses. 


Jay covered everything I needed to know.  Thanks Jay for being patient and encouraging me at every stage of the process.  I highly recommend you to my friends and anyone wanting to learn everything shooting.  I’m glad you're there."  Joe H., Mesquite, TX


"Just got back from North Texas Stick Drivers range with Jay at North Texas Rifle Precision. We went up to do load development and long range rifle training. I had an awesome day. The weather was poor (in the low 30's high 20's with wind chill and a little wind as well as cloudy and misty rain). We did load development on my Rem 700 .308. Shot thru several load designs and found one that worked out pretty well and held .5 to .75 groups. We moved from the 100 yd to 600 yd range and shot steel. After I had hit the steel consistantly Jay challenged me with a Tiger Woods special NIKE golf ball at 600 yds. Man was that awesome. Hit the golf ball second shot. I told Jay my friends would never believe it so he got out the video camera and we got the second golf ball at 600 yds on video. Made my day!!! We moved in to the 300 yd mark and he taught me the skills of positional shooting from sitting, kneeling and standing. My good luck of pulling the trigger at the right time continued. After shooting from each position and hearing the steel ring we did a couple of timed drills and finished out the ammo we had. I'd like to tell anyone looking for training on how to develope your handloads and learn what the difference is between each load design Jay is the man to call. We chronographed my loads and took notes on each different load. Jay explained what we were looking for in each round. Awesome training. He will teach you what to look for and how to make changes to improve. When it comes to shooting, Jay knows how to observe your shooting and fine tune your grip, posture and all the finer points to get you on the target time and time again. I have an almost stock Rem 700 Varmint rifle in .308 with 6 X 22 X 56 Night Force. At this point in time, I am not able to build a custom rifle so I shoot what I have. Jay had previously recommended I spend the money on Optics and he was absolutely right. The scope made the difference. I would recommend Jay to anyone looking to learn better handloads or learn to shoot better. Thanks Jay it was the best day I've had shooting."  Stacey P., Allen, TX

"I had the opportunity to take part in a reloading class from Jay with North Texas Rifle Precision. I could not have been happier with the instruction I received. Jay has a wealth of knowledge and has a very good method of instruction. In just a few short hours I had an excellent grasp of the topics covered from component selection all the way through load developement. It was an excellent experience from start to finish and I would recommend this too my friends and family who are serious about reloading safely and consistently." - Charles H., San Antonio, TX

"I have trained with Jay several times out to 1000 yards.  My police department sent me to sniper school and I graduated as Top Gun.  Jay's training really prepared me for the school and I credit him with helping me graduate with honors.  Thanks!" -

"I had never shot over 300yards before meeting Josh. Before the morning was out, he had me consistently ringing steel out to 700yards. Learned a bunch in a short time. Thanks Jay!"
- Bill J in TX

"Josh trained a friend and I to shoot long distance.  I found him very knowledgeable and he had me ringing steel in no time." - Michael in Houston
