Post your Mar. 2017 25yd. 10 Bull Match Scores here... (Memorial Match - Joe Haller)



Log in to see fewer ads
These matches are in memory of the individual who created them years ago... Joe Haller...

Joe's biography on RFC: "I am a Korean War Veteran. Came back from Korean with a spinal cord injury: (L-1). Get around in a wheelchair. Joined NBRSA in 1955 and NRA in 1956. Shoot in and help organize benchrest & NRA rifle/pistol matches. Coordinate E-Mail Matches."







Please read these rules, and then read them again. I've read them about 25 times, trying to put them together. In a sanctioned match, run by a club, the range officer and other club members running the match will explain rules to you. In this match, you may be shooting alone, or you may have to tell others the rules. You will be range officer, keeping time, target detail - putting up and retrieving targets: Scoring detail and Statistical Officer, posting the scores on RFC.

Read the rules twice. If you are old like me, with a short memory: Better read them three times.



THE RULES for the 10 SHOT MATCH (25yds.) . . . Post your score in this thread, below the rules:

1. DISTANCE: From the front edge of the bench to the face of the target: 25 yards.
2. AMMUNITION must be Rimfire: Maximum price $7.00 per box of 50. $14.00 per box of 100. We have now included Federal 711b and CCI Quiets as allowable ammunition. See the list of allowable ammo here:

http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=328390

Note: .17 cal rimfire may also be used but this will ammo will automatically place your rifle in the Shoot What You Have class (due to ammo. costs)

For those who want to get serious with match grade ammo, we have the 25 shot matches.

3. TARGET: We use a 10 bull version of the USBR target. The official USBR target has 25 record bulls and 3 sighter bulls.
You can download a copy of the 10 bull target here. Your choice: Green or Black. The 2 sighter bulls are important for checking wind changes. Use them.

Black Target:

Green Target:

http://freepdfhosting.com/f3b22b0987.pdf



4. TIME: A maximum of 15 minutes is allowed to fire sighter shots and one shot at each of the 10 record bulls. No limit on the number of sighter shots.
5. SCORING: You score your own targets, or have someone score for you. These matches are run on the honor system.
Look here at the graphics that show how to score the USBR target:


http://usbr.benchrest.net/scoretarget1.htm


If you don't have a scoring plug, get one. The scoring plug will make scoring the target not only easier, but will usually get you a couple of extra points!


6) Three Classifications: Rookie, Marksman and Expert...
Everyone starts out as a Rookie classification and works their way up the 'ladder' based on posted scores for record. Once you have achieved Marksman or Expert Classification you will not lose that classification.

Classes:

'Rookie' - can shoot 'unlimited' practice 10 Bull targets per month, shoot four (4) official scoring targets and post one (1) for record for the month.

'Marksman' can shoot a maximum of 10 practice 10 Bull targets per month, shoot two (2) official scoring targets and post one (1) for record for the month.

'Expert' can shoot a maximum of 4 practice 10 Bull targets per month, shoot one (1) official scoring target and post one (1) for record for the month.



Required scores:

Rookie - (0-0X to 96-9X) qualification.

Marksman - (97-0X to 99-9X) qualification with three aggregate scores to qualify.

Expert - (100-0X to 100-10X) qualification with three aggregate scores to qualify.


Simply, this setup allows true 'Rookie' marksmen to have as much bench time as they want/need and puts them under pressure to improve their marksmanship skills to a significant degree.

Once the Rookie has submitted three (3) qualifying scores representative of the above scoring classifications he will have earned his Marksman or Expert classification respectively. Qualifying scores do not have to be posted in consecutive months.

Official Attempts for score should be declared prior to shooting. Rookies get four (4), Marksmen get two (2), Experts get one (1).

Qualifications must be earned in each rifle class. Qualifying Expert in Shoot What You Have (SWYH (see Rule 7)) will not qualify you as Expert in Light or Heavy rifle classes. A person could be classified Expert in Light in the Marksman and Heavy class, and Rookie in SWYH, all at the same time.

A match competitor can only post one (1) score per month for a given Rifle Classification, (see Rule 7), but can use any .22 LR rifle in his collection. . This will keep the administration of these matches to a managable level. Hold on to your Official attempts until you are done shooting them. Then post your best effort.

Note: additional practice for the Marksman and Expert classes will be allowed by using targets that are not the USBR 10 Bull. Any other suitable target the marksman wishes to use is acceptable. We rely on the 'honor system'. If we all follow the rules our marksmanship skills and enjoyment of the sport will grow accordingly.


7. Three Rifle Classes:

Light Rifle - Factory
A. Rifle: The value of the rifle shall not exceed $500 and shall be limited to 8½ pounds in weight (according to the Blue Book of Gun Values) not including sights or scope attached. No barrel or stock modifications except the barrel may be re-crowned. Ammunition must fall under Rule 2.


Heavy Rifle - Factory
A. Rifle shall have no weight limits or value limits but the stock and barrel must be of original factory design, material, and length. Ammunition must fall under Rule 2.


Shoot What You Have (SWYH)
A. Firearm must be a rimfire rifle. Stock and barrel restrictions do not apply. There shall be no limitation on the ammunition, scope power, or rest used. 1-piece mechanical rests are allowed in the SWYH class.

8. TRIGGERS may be adjusted to a light pull, but must be safe. Custom trigger springs and parts are allowed.
9. SCOPES: Limited to not more than 9 power for the 25yd Matches for the Light Rifle and Heavy Rifle classes. Variables may be used. Just set them at 9 power. No limit on the cost of the scope. There is no scope limit power for the 'Shoot What You Have' class. This rule puts a premium on markmanship skills for the Light and Heavy Rifle Classes.
10. RESTS: Two piece sandbag rests, front and rear are allowed. Slide the rifle forward and back for elevation. Move the rear bag for windage. Squeeze the rear bag for fine elevation adjustments. A bipod may be attached to the rifle. It will not be included in the 8.5 lb. weight limit. Again, no one-piece mechanical rests are allowed for the Light Rifle and Heavy Rifle classes.

In the Shoot What You Have class, it is allowable to use 1-piece mechanical rests if desired.

11. WINTER: You may shoot on an indoor range from December to March. If you shoot indoors, type (INDOORS) at the beginning of the third line of your score report.
12. JUNIOR SHOOTERS: The minimum age of a young person allowed in these competitions will be determined by the parent. A Junior shooter is a young persons who has not reached the age of 18. If your are a Junior: Type (Age ___) at the end of the first line of your score report.
13. SCREEN NAME: If you have one, put it at the end of the first line: (RedNeck)
14. EQUIPMENT & TARGET REPORT: If you can post graphics, give us a picture of your target. Weather reports and excuses, make for interesting reading for others. Put them in your report.
15. THE GOOD, THE BAD, and the UGLY Thread: To allow for more shooting and learning, each month we will have a thread dedicated to “The good, the bad, and the ugly”. Go here to post your best and worst efforts. Post any targets you did not post as an official score submission. This thread exists so you can pound on your chest about that 96-9x you shot at a “practice” target. But please include the details about the flier that kept it from being a 100-10x. Or just post the worst of your efforts maybe someone can help analyze what went wrong and help you improve.


----------------------------------------------

If you don't have a rifle that fits these rules: Shot What You Have.

Later, when we see how these rules work, in the real world, we can think about things that will work better, or attract more shooters to the match.

----------------------------------------------

Format Example:

96-1x Bill Holladay. Cody, Wyoming. (Age 12) (Rookie)
CZ 452 American. Light Rifle Class, Bushnell 4-12 set at 9X. Winchester T-22
Brooks trigger kit. Free floated barrel. No glass bedding.
Misty rain. Shot under a covered firing line. Dad changed targets.

Picture of target. (if you know how to post one)

----------------------------------------------

Another Example:

99-1x Dan Duman. Buffalo, New York (Water Fall) (Marksman)
Win. 52C, Heavy Rifle, Tasco 6-24X set at 9X. CCI Standard.
(BOX STOCK) Front rest was a cement block with a folded up hunting shirt on top.
Rear rest was a shot bag full of sand.
Excuse: First time I ever shot in a match like this.

Picture of target. (if you know how to post one)

----------------------------------------------

Yet Another Example:
100-10X Annie Oakley, Drake Co. Ohio (Expert)
Rem. 40XR BR KS, "Shoot What You Have", Leupold 36X Benchrest (Fixed), ELEY 10X
Custom Rig. with Shilen bbl, tuner, and all the "Bells and Whistles".
Custom 1-piece Mechanical Rest
Excuse: Never needed to give one !

First time shooting BR. Was shooting just outside Sacramento CA. Was shooting near AceGirlsHusband and he very generously gave me a box of Eley Match to try.

Turns out my Anschutz 1710 DKL really likes the Eley Match.

I shot at Sac Valley. Not much wind. Sunny and high 60's.

That's a great first target, Java77. Never met an Anschutz that didn't like Ely Match, or any other good match ammo for that matter. Keep trying different brands until you find the best one. That's part of the fun of shooting a quality rifle. It's all about you and the ammo. You know the rifle is capable.......
