Hello Everyone!

The next Precision Rifle match will be Saturday, August 19th.  Signup starts at 7:30.  A safety briefing will start at 7:45 am and shooting will commence shortly there-after.  It’s going to be HOT!  Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

The match will consist of 52 minimum, but there is one unlimited stage, so you may want to bring 60-70 rounds. Please see description below of the first stage, as you will want a lot more to confirm your DOPE for the beginning of the match.   NO FULL METAL JACKETED AMMUNITION WILL BE ALLOWED AND A MAXIMUM CALIBER LIMIT OF 8MM OR .323  AND MAXIMUM VELOCITY LIMIT OF 3200 FPS WILL BE ENFORCED.   

Bolt guns and semi-auto's are both welcome.  A scope with adjustable turrets is preferred, but not necessary.  We are happy to help any who would like to try out long range shooting, so bring what you have and we'll help you get on target. Spectators are also welcome if you would like to come see what this sport is all about before you start shooting.
