2020 Match Results
A little explaining how these scores are scored. The shooters' highest score each month is added together, then divided by 12 (months in a year). This also is used for the x count. I am open for suggestions on how this might be improved on. Don't be shy.

If I have not scored your totals for the year correctly please send me a email at: private message here at RFC and we will see if that can be corrected.

50 Yard Iron Sight Shoot
I see this shoot as a place where we may keep track of our own shooting improvements, compare our shooting abilities with our fellow shooters, and to brag a little.
OK, lets start:
Iron Sight (Globe & Peep)
Matches start on the first day of each month and end on the last day of the month. Scores to be reported by the 2nd- 4th day of the following month. A Score Bulletin with all shooters names posted on the 4th or 5th day of the following month.
TARGETS TO BE USED IN THIS MATCH: NRA A 23/5 target. Note: This target is only for 50 yards. Five shots are fired at each bull for a total possible score of 200-20X.
The "HOW TO SCORE" Graphic: See

Ammunition is shoot what you have.
Optical front lens are permitted but limited to 1.5X. Shooters may use tube extensions on either their front or rear sights as long as they do not contain any optical magnification and the extensions do not form one solid tube between sights; i.e., there must be a distinguishable distance between the front and rear tubes making them separate. Shooters may use any type or color of front sight insert (clear, amber, etc.) and after market eyepieces or discs on their rear sight (Merit, Hadley, Gehmann, etc.) as long as the inserts or discs do not offer any optical magnification.
You may shoot as many targets each month with the same rifle but please only post one target. If you use a second or third rifle please only post one target per rifle. Shoot as many rifles as desired.
From the front edge of the bench to the face of the target: 50 yards.
A maximum of 20 minutes is allowed to fire all sighter shots and five shots at each of the 4 record bulls per target.
You may shoot on an indoor range, please note it when post your score.
The let's not:
have any rail guns, or benchrest stocks. Any rifle with a benchrest type stock or a custom action or a factory action that has been "blueprinted" will not be allowed in this class. A benchrest stock is one that has a foreend with a flat bottom, more than 2.7 inches wide, and/or has the bottom of the buttstock parallel or near parallel to the bottom of the foreend. Bench Rest Blocks (plates attached to the accessory rail or stock) are not permitted.
At the end of the year (early January) I will compile all of a persons scores devided by 12 (months in a year) and post a yearly score.
I would like for everyone to report thier score and equipment information as follows
Your name or screen name
Rifle, ammo, score
Equipment list (rest front/rear, any thing special about your setup)
Weather/or shot indoors
Excuses: Anything you would like us to know about your shooting day.
Would be nice if you could post a photo of your setup.

A23/5 targets w/black centers
65 degrees, light wind. Broken clouds.
Wolf Match Extra ammo

I had brought South a number of bricks of this ammo I had at my other house. Different Lot from what I have been shooting here. I decided to clean the barrel. Once again, the bolt did not want to come out. The bolt aft of the trigger in the trigger guard is too long and interferes and I had filed it down once before. Maybe the wood is shrinking. I took it out and removed more of it's length and put it back in, as tight as I felt it should be by feel. So with the rifle having maybe different tension on the action, a clean barrel and new ammo, I spent the first target getting it sighted in and the barrel "conditioned". The last group of 5 on that target were the best of the day. By the second target, the wind was slightly more but still pretty light. After that, I shot a CZ Scout and the wind was up still more.
