Sniper Prone Match April 30

 

Due to increasing interest we will continue to have the Sniper matches  immediately following the high power matches every 4th Sunday with exception in April. April’s match will be the 5th Sunday which is April 30. Registration will be approximately 12 noon. Arrive at the high power range about 11 am and join us for a lunch break and BS session. We will fire up the grill for burgers, dogs or chicken wings, etc. Just throw in a few bucks toward the cost of the viddles since we buy this ourselves.

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 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 plan to 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.  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”. Example below.
