50 Yard Vintage and Unlimited Iron Sight Matches:

If You Are New Here . . . 50 Yard Iron Sight Matches

. . . And want to know how our Iron Sight (Globe & Peep) match rules work: Here they are:
Matches start on the first day of each month and end on the last day of the month. Scores to be reported by the last day of the month. A Score Bulletin with all competitors names raked from high to low is posted on the 4th or 5th day of the following month.

I would suggest that if you are interested in shooting this match, that you read these rules. and then: READ THEM AGAIN.
---------------------------------------------------------------
TARGETS TO BE USED IN THIS MATCH:
We would use the NRA A 23/5 target that is also used in our other 50 yard matches.
---------------------------------------------------------------
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 http://pic90.picturetrail.com/VOL238.../396365250.jpg

If you don't have a scoring gauge, better get one. They are more accurate than looking at a ragged round grease mark, and the gauge will sometimes give you an extra point.
---------------------------------------------------------------

RULES for the Peep & Globe Limited, Light Rifle and Unlimited Iron Sight 50 yd. Match;

Make sure you read these rules! If you have any questions please ask.
Note: Rifles that are used in Vintage and Unlimited Matches shall not be scored together, but kept separate as the rules spell out.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Classifications:
Unlimited
1.Rifles: As this is the Unlimited Class anything goes except no Rail Guns and no one-piece rests. This would include production BR rifles (Anschutz BR50 for example, the high-end Annies and Walthers), or rifles that have been fitted with BR stocks. There is no restriction to the age of the rifle.

2.There shall be no limitation on the ammunition.

3.Accessories: Bench Rest Blocks (plates attached to the accessory rail or stock) are permitted. Optical front lens are permitted but limited to 1.5X. All other accessories or shooting and range gear are permitted but limited to those listed in the Vintage Matches.

Vintage
1. Vintage shall be defined as rifles that have not been changed or modified in any way except as permitted by the following rules. No blue printing or aftermarket items (except as noted) that would allow a rifle to perform better.

2.There shall be no limitation on the ammunition except as spelled out in the overall rules.
These rules are common to all classes:

3.Stocks: Must have original stock. Or: if the stock as been modified or the original stock has been replaced with a custom, a factory stock of the same type as the original may be used. Glass bedding and pillars are allowed.

4.Barrel: Rifle must have original barrel, with no barrel tuner. The factory barrel may be shortened and recrowned. Rechambering is not allowed. Bloop tubes are not permitted.

5.Trigger: Must be mechanical. No electric or remote triggers. Trigger parts/springs or custom triggers may be installed for a light pull. Must be safe.

6.Rests: Front and rear rests, not connected and filled with sand or plastic pellets. Windage and elevation adjustments are allowed on the front rest. BiPod front rest allowed. A large single sand bag of the "Bulls Bag" type would be allowed.

7.Ammunition is shoot what you have unless restricted above, but NOT to exceed $16.00 per box of 50. Price will be before shipping or taxes. (No Eley Red Box, Lapua Midas or RWS R50)
Prices listed on the Champion Shooters Supply Website will be our "standard price list".
The Champion Shooters Supply website:
http://www.championshooters.com/index-ssl.html
Click on "Ammunition" on the left side of the home page.
Discontinued match grade ammunition is considered to be in the same price range as similar ammunition in current production. (No Federal 1000 A or B).
With the cost of ammunition rising: We will adjust prices in the future.

Rule change as follows;

8.RESTRICTIONS: 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.

9.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.

10.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.

11.You may shoot up to 4 targets each month with the same rifle. Post your best score here in this thread. If you use a second rifle you may shoot 4 more targets with the second rifle.

12.All results are to be posted in the appropriate thread in this Iron Sight Bench Rest forum. Results should identify the rifle shot, the type or brand of sights, the caliber/type of rifle, any modifications to the rifle other than simply bedding or tuning the trigger, the brand of ammo used, if the target was shot indoors or out, appropriate comments on weather conditions, and the range at which the target was shot.

13.The official monthly match dates will be from the 1st to the last day of the month. Please try to get your scores posted by the first day of the following month. An official score bulletin will be posted on the 4th or 5th of the following month. This match period starts March 1 and ends December 31, 2010.

----------------------------------------------
Other rules that apply are General Rules for the RFC On-Line Matches.
---------------------------------------------
14.From the front edge of the bench to the face of the target: 50 yards.

15.A maximum of 20 minutes is allowed to fire all sighter shots and five shots at each of the 4 record bulls per target.

16.If a rifle fits the rules for more than one rifle class, you may enter the rifle in each of those classes. Before you start a target, you write the rifle class on the target and enter that score in that rifle class. Do not enter that score in more than one match. You may shoot a maximum four targets per month in each rifle class where the rifle fits the rules. Post your best score(s) in the correct match thread for the month.

17.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. Because it is HOT in our Southern States in the Summer (And in Australia and South American,in our winter): Anyone who has access to a 25 and or 50 yard indoor range, may shoot the RFC matches INDOORS, as long as they indicate "INDOORS" in their score reports."

18.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 14): Or whatever your age, at the end of the first line of your score report.

19. We will now keep track of your scores and they will be applied towards your ranking. Only the highest score would be counted for the Month like in the past. I let shooters shoot 4 targets. I posted the first score that was turned in. If he or she shot a higher score I removed the first score from his record and posted the new higher score. Only the highest score counts for the month, as in the past. I would rather do it this way than wait till the end of the month and post everything at once. So the spread sheet could show 4 scores listed but only the highest would count.

20. You need 3 qualifying targets in any period of time to qualify for the award. But you can't do more than 1 qualifying target in any month unless you use different rifles. Remember we are trying to get shooters out and shooting.

21. Once a shooter has achieved a certain level/class, he doesn't lose that even if shooting a lower score.

There would be no averaging as it requires a lot of time and our matches are not set up for it.

I will post new sticky's by the end of the month so everything is permanent.

Classes:
Pro-Marksman 180-194
Marksman 195-198
Marksman 1st Class 199 – 200 0X thru 3X
Shapshooter 200 – 4X thru 13X
Master 200 – 14X thru 17X
Expert 200 – 18X thru 19X
Distinguished Expert 200-20X

--------------------------------------------------------------
PLEASE enter your score and equipment information at the bottom of this thread, in this format:
EXAMPLE:
199-13x (Vintage or Unlimited) John Smith. Warren, Maine (Iron Sighter)
Mossberg Model 44US, S100 receiver and S106 front, SK std +
Hoppes front rest. Bunny ear rear bag.
EXCUSES for not shooting well.
Sunny, 38F, 10-15 mph steady breeze.
50-3x 49-3x 50-3x 50-4x
This is very important as it saves time and in the future will allow us to collate using the computer.
--------------------------------------------------------------
You can save yourself some time and save me the trouble of reformatting your report if you save a copy the above example, then just put in your score, name, home town, state and your equipment information. Save that copy and next month you will only have to change the score (and maybe the ammo you use)

200-16x, 200-17x and 200-18x

Savage/Anschutz Model 64
Redfield Olympic Sights
Harris Bi-Pod & Protextor Rear Bag
A23/5 targets w/black centers
75 degrees, light wind.
Wolf Match Extra ammo

I had been taping an extra bull, usually white center, to use to get the sight adjusted. Another shooter showed me that these targets can be had with 6 bulls. Identified as an A-23/6 target. I will order those next time I need targets.

I'm back. Been shooting scope for several years but I just got a new Winchester 52C from GunBroker (thank you David) and wanted to see if I still had it in me. The rifle looks like it just came out of the factory in New Haven. It shoots as well as it looks. Tried two sets of Redfield sights and a BV-20 Unertl scope to break it in. It still needs a little tweaking but I'm happy with the first day.

March 25, 2019 @ Sebastian, Florida

March 25, 2019, Florida
200-14x, 200-15x and 200-17x

Savage/Anschutz Model 64
Redfield Olympic Sights
Harris Bi-Pod & Protextor Rear Bag
A23/5 targets w/black centers
75 degrees, light wind.
Wolf Match Extra ammo

Maybe found a technique that might be helpful in moving from bull to bull avoiding an errant shot after doing so. After getting lined up on the new bull, I bang down with my hand just above the bi-pod a few times. Make any final small adjustments and shoot. Not one errant shot in all three sets of targets today. I think maybe some tension gets into play when moving the sights onto a new target, especially with horizontal movement. Tapping my fist down may allow any tensions to be released. Anyway, I was very pleased with today and had one 5 shot group worthy of being cut out and carried around, just in case I feel the need to brag or collect complements. All five grouped very close/overlap touching and exactly centered.

Right on

It looks as though you have the solution figured out David. I shoot from a front rest and find that the first shot after the move to a new bull is the most liable to cause heartburn. Just about the time you think you've got things figured out. A flier shows up.

I know it feels real good when 5 shots go in the same hole. My best ever was .156". I've come close to that a time or two but not quite.

Just keep put'n um down range.
