DM Qual Course outlines/info request

I have the ear of a local rangemaster about doing a bi-annual or maybe quarterly Designated Marksman type match on a 1000 yard range. My idea is not so much running different stages for a match, but one overall skills stage based off what one would find in a DM Qual. 

My idea is to keep the allowed rifles/calibers as common mil/le calibers; 308/556, and Mk12/M1A/SR25 type rifles to try and avoid an equipment race. 

If anyone has any DM qual course ideas or past quals they know of and wouldn't mind sharing, I would love to get some ideas to draw from.

What distances are you thinking? I figure you have static targets in mind, do you have the ability for movers steel and elevated positions?

We can run anything inside 1K. Targets set up wherever we want inside that distance. It is basically an old air strip, plenty wide and movers are also an option. I would have to make them up, but I can fab about anything. Might not be pretty but it will work. Steel is gtg.

Elevated positions are also possible.

I'm interested in this too.  I've started an outline for a department DM class.  I have a couple of courses of fire in mind, but want to steal other people's ideas if possible. I can only go out to 500.

Come on people - spill.

A better idea would be to run divisions. Limiting entry to class/caliber will seriously impact participation.

I have been working in other areas for a while, but an old model follows. Concept is based on the need of a DM to transition from point blank to mid range while moving. You would use about 400 m of the range for movement.

Total of 40 rounds:

Engagement 1 cold bore shot at 600m. Steel target 1 hit

Engagement 2: Displace to FP 2, engage 2 IPSC/E-Type 2 rounds each, distance 7-15 meters.

Engagement 3: Standing Supported, 3 F-Type (head & shoulders) targets at 100, 175, 225. One hit each.

Engagement 4: Displace to FP 3, snap Engagement at 100 standing or kneeling. One hit

Engagement 5: Prone supported, targets at 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 550, 600. Two rounds each, E-Type steel targets dispersed laterally and mixed. 

Engagement 6: Displace to FP 4, engage 2 movers at 25 m, two rounds each.

Engagement 7: Targets at 75, 275,  400, 600. Two rounds each, targets dispersed laterialy, Steel F-Type.

Key "DM" skills stressed:

1.Optic Management

2. Range estimation

3. SRM

4. Movement 

5. Precision 

 

 

 

Desert,

I like what you have layed out. I might borrow this for non competition purposes.
