600 rounds, this is a fast paced course that skips most of the explanations provided during prior courses. Everything we do, every mag change, trigger press, position, everything, is intensely focused and purpose driven. We continue our sports science training methodologies, advanced shooting drills, positions, shooting & moving. This is the process for creating the most capable warriors in the world.
Caution: Our rifle courses can be physically exhausting, participants should be physically fit and able to stand for long periods of time. A certain amount of athleticism expected.

Show up to class with a weapon that has been sighted in. We will verify sight-in. Your rifle should be in good working order. Consistently malfunctioning is defined as 5 malfunctions. If your rifle has had 5 malfunctions you may change it out for a spare rifle, once. If that rifle has 5 malfunctions, you are done for the day.
Buy ammunition from a manufacturer you trust and have used extensively.
No steel ammunition or military green-tip ammunition. Tulammo is not allowed, or any other steel core ammunition.
Magazine load out - arrive with two empty magazines. If possible, load the ammunition projection prior to arrival. If you have numerous magazines, load them prior to arrival.
Example 1: The course calls for 600 rounds of 5.56/.223 ammunition. 30 round magazines. 600 ÷ 30 = 20 magazines of 30 rounds.
Example 2: The course calls for 500 rounds of 5.56/.223. 30 round magazines. 500 ÷ 30 = 16.66. Load 16 Magazines with 30 rounds.
Example 3: The course calls for 300 rounds of 5.56/.223. 300 ÷ 30 = 10. Load 10 magazines with 30 rounds.
No muzzle breaks (due to safety concerns) - Muzzle breaks divert gas left and right of the shooter. This is not a problem when the shooter is alone on the line. It becomes a problem when the shooter is participating in a training event in which, multiple shooters are on the line next to each other, or when conducting CQB, or other small unit tactics. During the course of firing 300 to 500 rounds (or more) participants are not just distracted from consistent concussion pinging, but have actually begun to experience the effects of a traumatic brain injury. These symptoms include, headache, and blurred vision. The increased noise levels also reduce a shooters ability to hear range commands, such as, Cease Fire. The decibel levels of most muzzle breaks are increased to levels that require double hearing protection by OSHA standards. For these reasons Red Frog disallows muzzle breaks during our training.
* If you remove your muzzle break prior to the course, you may borrow a standard flash hider.
