evilroy Posted October 16, 2014 Share Posted October 16, 2014 We will have a long range bolt action side match this year. Allowed Rifles per the rules: Must be an original caliber bolt action rifle issued by any country to its military forces through the end of WW ll. It must be "as issued" with original iron battle sights and no external modifications. Faithful reproductions are also allowed. Don't show up with anything which does not meet the rules. There will be no exceptions. For this match you can shoot fmj ammo. I am bringing targets which will withstand the hits. There will be a men's and women's category. We will pay 3 deep in both. First run for score. A smaller separate trophy will be given for the fastest time for any run even if you run it 100 times. We will have real trophies. Each run will cost $5 to help pay for them. We will have loaner rifles and ammo for shooters with no rifle. $10 per run with them to offset ammo cost. Targets will be 12x14 inch ovals set at 100, 125 and 150 yards. Each shooter will shoot two five round Nevada Sweep runs. Reload off the clock. Score will be the total time of both runs. Most hits wins with time being the tie breaker. You can shoot off sticks or off any table or bales on the stage. Gun starts with bolt open, magazine loaded. There could be small changes such as small adjustment on range but this is what we plan now. We need volunteers to help with the side matches and we are still looking for some more sponsors to offset cost. Sign up for the match. We want to overwhelm them with shooters.
