Our journey began in the summer of 2007. We both shared a passion for shooting in general, but we both started getting into the long-range aspect and we were immediately hooked. We soon began finding places to shoot on the weekends to practice. We started building rifles when we could and began reloading all of our own ammunition. We both started out with a .223 Remington and we would try to push that cartridge further and further. We had places to shoot a little over 600 yards at this time. As we got older, our caliber choices soon grew as well. We soon moved to .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor, and other 6mm variants in which we continue to shoot on a daily basis.
In 2010, we began to take this sport quite seriously. We did countless hours of research and studied every factor in shooting long range. Long range shooting is a challenge, you are constantly learning every time you go to the range. Nothing is the same and I think that's what we love so much about the sport. That and it's a lot of fun!
In 2018, Cold Bore Institutions was born. We obtained a facility that has a little over 1 mile of range. We began teaching the knowledge we have obtained over the years of shooting and tried focusing on doing our part in trying to grow this industry and the community it encompasses.
When we are not engaged with teaching the sport, we both actively participate in local PRS competitions across New England. We are always open to learning as this sport is a never ending learning game and we are forever students. We love to gain as much additional knowledge from various competitors in this industry; to do so, we must engage ourselves. By doing this we can pass along more valuable knowledge to our students.
As instructors, we will never leave a student behind. We offer a well balanced instructor/student ratio, creating more valuable time with an instructor to help ensure every student is learning at their own speed.
We love what we do and hope we get the pleasure to work with you as a potential student.

"My name is Andrew, I got introduced to shooting sports about 10 years ago. A good friend of mine introduced me to USPSA and from there, 3-gun, then precision rifle. For me, rifles, whether it be an AR platform or a long gun, has always been my number one interest when it came to shooting sports, so naturally, I fell right in place with precision rifle. It keeps you on your toes, it's never the same challenge; whether it be making wind calls or getting into shooting positions on different obstacles, or the challenge of putting together a good rifle and developing a good load for it. "
"Getting to share with others what I have learned throughout the years of competing and helping the shooting sports grow, is what it's all about for me. I'm looking forward to what's to come in precision rifle, which is growing rapidly. Whether it be people showing interest in wanting to compete in matches or wanting to just develop better shooting skills for target shooting, or in the quest to harvest an animal at longer ranges, I look forward to working with you!"
