Kestrel School Saturday, Sept 3rd 9AM-3PM


The Kestrel Class at Peacemaker is a complete, one day, “how to” class, using the Kestrel 5700 wind & weather meter with ballistics and your rifle!

We’ll cover everything from initial Kestrel setup to ballistics software use and proper calibration. You will spend time in the classroom and on the range with Kestrel experts guiding you every step of the way!

This is a great opportunity to intimately understand the power of the Kestrel and become a much better Long Range Shooter!
