Precision Rifle Match
This match tests shooters in hitting smaller, closer targets and larger, more distant targets. Also it requires team work and communication between the team members.
FIREARMS: One of the team members will be required to use a “308 class” rifle. This shooter will engage the group of closer targets. The other team member may shoot any rifle/scope combination. Unless the team has declared a “gadget” team, no electronic gizmos will be allowed.
Shooters may use shooting mats, spotting scopes. Teams may choose to use rangefinders, wind meters, etc. If a team chooses this option, a 5 min. penalty will be added.
CONDUCT OF THE MATCH:
Team members will move their equipment to the line. When the time starts, shooters may range and engage their designated targets. Each team member will have 6 targets. Group A targets will be 4X6, 6X8, 8X12, 10X15 and 12X18 and 19.5×24.
Group B targets will be 6 – 20″X40″ E silhouettes. One team member will engage “GROUP A” targets with a 308 class rifle, the Group B targets may be engaged with any rifle except 50 cal.
The team member shooting the Group A targets may assist the Group B by shooting Group B targets if necessary only after all Group A targets have been hit. Shooters may spot for their other team member if needed. Other teams will spot and score for the teams firing.
This is a timed match. ALL targets must be hit. Time will stop when a team has hit all their targets.
Teams that lack the self esteem or skills to have honor, and that instead “take the easy road” by using electronics will have 5 minutes added to their time. The real shooters will not mock you for this embarrassing choice.
