Any Rifle Any Sights Makeup Match

October 29 will be our makeup match that was postponed by Irma.

It will be a 50 round, 100 yard, prone rifle match with unlimited sighters.

The match will start at 9:00. Signin at 8:30.

We will be  running two relays.

This match is open to centerfire and smallbore rifles.

35 caliber max.

F-Class shooters are welcome to participate.

Sniper prone and mini palma practice Feb 26th.

The High Power Rifle discipline will be once again holding some “Sniper” all prone matches and also adding some small bore (22 caliber rim fire) matches in 2017.

We will have a  sniper and mini palma practice immediately following the high power match Sunday Feb 26th. Arrive at the high power range about 11 am. Leave your firearms in your vehicle until we go through our safety meeting and sign in. We will sign in at the high power range. Range fee is $5 for shooters that fired the high power match and $10 for everyone else. This pays for range fees and target costs. Bring at least 50 rds of ammo or more if you have it. We will practice for a few hours and you can shoot as much as time permits. This will give you a chance to see what we will be doing, get familiar with match procedures and get good zeros. We have a few mats and spotting scopes but if you have a piece of carpet, blanket or anything to lay on bring it. If your rifle is not equipped with a scope that will allow you to see bullet holes at 100 yards bring a spotting scope if you have one since we only have 3 or 4. We will spot for you if need be. Email me if you will participate so I can prepare enough targets.

Sniper matches will be at 100 yards, all prone or whatever position chosen using slings,  bipods, rests, a log, dead horse, etc. or a combination. Please do not use a real dead horse. That was a fun example to make the point that any support that may be available for a sniper is OK. Centerfire scoped rifles will be needed since some of the targets are reduced to resemble a 1600 yard shot at a bad “object”. The targets will have + points for good hits and – score points for shooting the good “object”.
