CMP student Guy Loughridge appreciated Charlie’s instruction and commented on his time in the course saying it is, “absolutely the best”. Guy joined the 1000 yard club with the help of his spotter, Charlie Melton, using his 6.5mm Creedmoor rifle and factory PRIME ammunition. During the course of fire, Phillip Hotzen II laid down behind a prototype 6mm Creedmoor rifle and was able to achieve hits on Guy’s 1000 yd target with such ease, he was able to achieve impacts in the head region of a silhouette steel target. He was also equipped with a brand new stability platform called Accuracy Solutions by Accuracy Solutions.
Apparently, the new 1000 yard club members of the CMP course were not satisfied with their achievements and proceeded to extend the distance of their attempted shots to 1500 yards, only 260 yards shy of 1 mile! Guy commented after successfully making hits at the new range equipped with Accuracy Solutions, “Whatever I could do at 750 was just as easy at 1500.”

A week after mentioning to Charlie his goal of a 1000 yard shooting range, they built it. That is when Charlie began teaching him long range, as well as pistol and carbine. Following the Axelson Tactical grand opening, they received a lot of inquiries about long range training, and decided to open Charlie Mike Precision.
