February 29th Match


This Saturday will be our 5th Saturday Match. Sign in begins at 8:15.

General Match Info:

1. We will have our ever popular "sniper stage" with shots out to 600 yards.
2. You can shoot any rifle you want on the sniper stage provided it is not larger than .30 caliber or muzzle velocity in excess of 3,200 FPS. Bolt guns are welcome and you can run an entirely different rifle/carbine on all the other stages.
3. The other stages will be run and gun assault stages with carbine & pistol and shotgun.

We strongly urge all shooters to bone up on their dope/ballistics for their rifle and load out to 600 yards. If you are gonna shoot this stage shoot it responsibly. Don't put rounds downrange randomly and HOPE you hit the target. That is bad form and unsafe.

Sniper Stage Scoring - Rifle steel must be hit once each to neutralize (RO or spotters will call hits). When a target is neutralized move on to the next target. First round hits will be awarded no bonus or penalty time, a 1st round miss is a 20 second penalty, a miss on both the 1st and 2nd rounds is a 40 second penalty and the bonus target is a 20 second bonus. There will be not more than 2 shots allowed/per target/shooting position, with the exception of the bonus target which will be allowed only one shot/per target/shooting position. Failure to engage in tactical order is a procedural penalty of 20 seconds. Failure to engage is a penalty of 60 seconds/target not engaged. Any bonus target is Optional and is a 20 second bonus for a 1st round hit and no penalty time for a miss. Maximum raw time 200 seconds
 
Example: Actual raw time + (plus) penalty time for Misses, FTE’s or Procedural's - (minus) bonus time for 1st round hits on the bonus target = Final Score

Match Director and RSO’s decision as to acceptability of supports shall be final. All shooters must shoot from the designated Shooting Position.
