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)

200-15x, 200-14x and 200-15x

Savage/Anschutz Model 64
Redfield Olympic Sights
Harris Bi-Pod & Protextor Rear Bag
A23/5 targets. two w/black centers & one w/white centers
70 degrees, light wind.
Wolf Match Extra ammo
50-5x, 50-4x, 50-3x & 50-3x = 200-15x
50-3x, 50-4x, 50-4x & 50-3x = 200-14x
50-3x, 50-4x, 50-5x & 50-3x = 200-15x

I need to figure out why the point of impact sometimes changes when I move from one bull to another. Then I need to do something about it. I also wish the rear sight was in 1/8 clicks rather than 1/4 clicks. I know, just a matter of spending some money to buy another rear sight. But at age 77, I can't really complain as my eyes are doing a lot better than others younger then I am. As long as I am writing a bit, I will add that my bolt seemed to be having a slight hitch in it's operation when closing it and I discovered two things. One was a bolt securing the action from the underside needed to be filed a bit and the other was some smoothing of the rear part of the metal that is the rearward part of the feed plate. I do not know the correct name, sorry. But it did seem to make things smoother in operations.

Actually Redfield did make a version of the international in 1/8 clicks called a MK 8. They are pricey though. Generally running around 300.

My guess on the POI shift is that with a Harris bipod and rear bunny moving a little to a new bull the bipod doesn’t give and sort of torques the rear bag. Just a guess

Why it changes bull to bull...

As to why it changes bull to bull, I think that is a factor. I had tried picking up the rifle and setting it down when shifting sideways to minimize that torquing effect. And it did help, some. The rifle is not as stable as it could be, maybe a wood thing. Each new day at the range the point of impact has shifted a bit and needs to be dialed in again. And I am aware of the Mark 8 sight. My friend has one, I think, but I do not want to spend the money to get one. Three biggest reasons I do not shoot more perfect scores, in no particular order, (1) 77 year old eyes are right on the edge of needing a scope. Some days with lots of light and the stars aligned in the universe, I can define where to center the bull and the groups are pretty good. Other days, not so much, especially for 25 or 30 consecutive shots. (2) Middle of the road ammo. Not too often, but too often for my liking, a shot will obviously have a different powder charge. You can hear it. You can see the hole appearing way out of the group and all else seemed fine. And (3) not using wind flags. The good scores I shot in 2011-2013 had very tiny groups. The good scores I shoot today the groups are not as tiny. Difference of all basically inside the X ring to all surrounding but touching the X ring. Each scores a 50-5x, but the early ones were pretty and todays are not so pretty. But having fun.

200/15X Tom Billeter, Keeley, Tucson AZ
Remington Mod37, Remington Sights, SK Std+
Cowan front, Protektor rear
50/4X, 50/4X, 50/4X, 50/3X = 200/15X

The difference between luck and skill.......When I got home and was cleaning the rifle I found the front sight was loose on its base😜

Vintage 198-10X
Rob Fates, Alamo CA, 2/10/19
Remington 511, Redfield 75 rear and Lyman MJT90 front sights
Protektor front and rear bags
SK Rifle Match ammo
50-3X, 50-2X, 49-3X,49-2X

Bright sun, low wind. X-count is rising but I still drop a couple of points in each match. New Protektor rear bag helps vs a felt covered board I was using. I'm experimenting with not cleaning the barrel between matches and groups seem to be getting smaller. As of this match I have 130 rounds fired without thorough cleaning, just running one dry patch to push out unburned powder residue. Also I think I shoot better on overcast days. In bright sunlight the glare on the target makes the bull appear to shimmer and is harder to center for me.

I'm in California so I just got hit with new restrictions on purchasing ammo. SK is not available locally so I've been using the internet to buy from Champion Shooters supply. As of January 1 I can no longer have ammo shipped directly to my house so It has to be sent to an FFL dealer and picked up there, where I had to pay a fee of $20 for the service. After July 1 I will have to undergo a background check and pay a $50 fee for a state permit to buy ammo. This time I bought 3,000 rounds (6 bricks) to postpone the added inconvenience.

Great shooting. A 511 is a good gun. I grew up shooting a 512 at the creek sinking the trash 1 can or bottle at a time.

Sorry about what California has done to you. That sucks. NC is so free in comparison. I guess I take it for granted.

About cleaning. At the end of a day of shooting I push a dry patch through the bore and then a patch soaked in Kroil. At about 500 rounds I actually scrub it down and start over. Yes you are right that it takes about 20 rounds to settle in.

Vintage 193-8x
Kevin Lloyd, Benton Gun Club, Arkansas 2/14/19
Winchester 52-B, Redfield MK 10 rear, Olympic front
Unknown front rest, sandbag rear
Federal Match ammo
49-3x, 50-3x, 48-2x, 46-0x

Windy morning, steady at 5 and gusting to 18. This was my first time to shoot this rifle in match conditions, had put about 30 rounds through it the week before to sight it in. I have had the Redfield Mark 10 sight for several years but had never had it on a gun. When I bought this 52 last year I immediately knew I wanted to put this Redfield on it. I started off good with the first two groups but I guess the wind got to me on the last two.

You did better then I did this morning. Cold grey and wet here in Tucson so I begged off. To old for this kinda weather. How about a photo of the 52 with the mark 10 on the rear? Where did you run across the sight? Been looking for one.

Not great pics but all I had. I got the Mark 10 from a good friend of my dad's when he retired from competition shooting in the mid 80's. It was still in the box and did not look like it was ever mounted. The thing is a real chunk, but very sturdy. I don't think you could hurt it with a hammer.

Sort of dwarfs the whole gun. I didn’t realize they were that big. WOW

Thanks for sharing

A great example

You're lucky to have it. It is built like a watch.
