The Ballistic Edge (TBE) was founded to provide the most current and advanced training possible to our military, law-enforcement, and security professionals. Unlike many other sniper training courses that simply repeat old, tired anecdotes and outdated, erroneous information which has become “urban legend,” The Ballistic Edge presents the newest, cutting-edge techniques based on hard science and research.

Our courses specifically address the real-world demands of today’s tactical environment, which requires snipers to be capable of adaptive tactics as well as precise planned response. Our training plans and objectives are built around “lessons learned” from law-enforcement and military professionals around the world, and are taught by a staff of highly knowledgeable former military and police special operations professionals.

The Ballistic Edge teaches proprietary data collection and diagnostic procedures using inexpensive commercially available items to ensure maximum weapon performance and repeatability. TBE has also pioneered a new ballistics calculation methodology based on extensive independent research which invalidates older “rule of thumb" formulas. This calculation technique does not require computer use in the field, yet is more accurate than external ballistic computer software (PDA’s) and is easily done without such tools. Temperature, altitude, slope are all addressed easily using the TBE method.

The Ballistic Edge has also conducted extensive research into the effects of maintenance on bore condition and repeatable accuracy. Metallurgy and internal ballistics factors can have major effects on accuracy under varying conditions. Our optimized maintenance procedures will help keep you on target, from the first shot to the last.

We simply provide the finest training programs available for today’s professional marksmen.
