Practical Precision Sniper Challenge
$15 entry fee, starts at 10am.
Beginning with the September match there will be a few changes. Stages will be set at various locations around the rifle range. We will be shooting mostly steel with a paper target stage on occasion at ranges of 10 yards to 400+ yards from an elevated high angle shooting position.. This may change to all steel as attendance increases. There will no longer be a handgun stage included in the match but we plan to add an additional rifle stage. Binoculars and range finders are allowed as well as any type of rest, bipod, shooting sticks, and bags you would like however you must carry all your equipment with you either in bags on your rifle or on your person for the entire match. If you start out with it you have to finish with it. A word to the wise , bench rest type equipment (mechanical front rests) probably will not be very functional as we will be shooting mostly from improvised field positions and remember you have to carry it. This will not be a physical fitness test. No long hikes or fast roping from helicopters but some of the shooting positions will sometimes involve a short walk through the woods to get to them. The shooter will be given an area from which to shoot and be able to solve the shooting problem from what ever position they wish with what ever is available in that area as long as there are no safety issues. Rather than shooting against the clock a time limit will be set and points will be earned for hits on the targets. Rifles will be limited to 30 caliber 2900 fps maximum and can be either bolt or semi automatic. A sling for the rifle and a way to carry extra ammo on the rifle or on your person would be a good idea. 50 rounds of rifle ammo will be needed. For everyone’s enjoyment please make sure your firearm is in good working condition and sited in before arriving. The range will not be available before the match.
