October Topstraps Rimfire Challenge

Log in to see fewer ads
Well, Fall is finally here and this will be the last Topstraps Rimfire Challenge matches of the year. Not sure about next year yet due to so many matches being run, it's making competitors choose which of 3 or 4 each weekend to go to. We'll see as Spring gets closer if there is still enough interest to do them next year even if it might be every other month.

This final match will be my World Famous Timed Challenge. Same rules apply as always, no Benchrest type equipment meaning no tuners, bloop tubes, fancy adjustable rests or things like that. Any rifle and scope can be used and an ammo limit of no more than $8.00/50 can be used at a price average Joe/Jill can purchase it for.

Competitors can use any 22 longrifle rifle/pistol including a Single shot, Semi-auto, Toggle, Pump, Lever Gun or Falling Block but will be limited to one (1) 10 round max magazine or no more than 10 rounds at any one time in the gun. There will be 80 targets from 25 yards out thru 197 yards and you will be given 20 minutes to do the best you can. You will not be shooting the smaller targets on my racks, targets will be some of my larger ones to keep things moving and not have a shooter get hung up on a really small hard to hit target.

Shooters will dump 100 rounds in a bowl (has to be in the bowl and witnessed), at the buzzer they can load their magazine or start shooting if a single shot. Starting at 25 yards and always shooting left to right you work your way out thru the racks. I will only call out a miss and not an impact. I'm not spotting for any misses or hits on targets other than for score, up to you to see your own shots unless you get totally lost and I'll help you back onto a target. If I don't say anything keep shooting. I will give each shooter a paper with all rack numbers and distances on it so your data can be entered before it's your turn to start. I will tell you that you can progress to the next distance but it is up to the shooter to keep track of which rack/distance and target they are shooting. If you get lost/confused I may help with rack number but not every one. Up to the shooter to keep track of where they are.

A competitor can take sighters on a larger square plate at any time they feel it's beneficial but those shots come out of their 100 rounds. The final score is calculated based on targets hit, rounds left over (if any) and also the time used to complete the match. So, you need to be accurate but shoot quickly to get as many hits as possible to get a good time or even finish the course. When the 20 minutes are done so are you, all part of the challenge.

Last time I ran this match an old Win 52-C with a 5 round magazine won with two Single Shot shooters coming in a close 2nd and 3rd. We came up with a calculation that when we tried every variable possible it always worked out the most accurate shooter with the most hits and lowest time won. Was a lot of fun and a lot of different strategies that shooters tried to place higher up, some worked and some didn't but it made for letting the spectactors being entertained. I will only run one competitor at a time but it'll go faster than a regular match and gives for good entertainment while watching the others shoot.

It will be Friday (11th), Saturday (12th) and Sunday (13th) of October. Starting around 8:30 or maybe even 8:00 if it's light enough. I know there are a lot of other shoots that weekend but the weather looks good so far and hope to see a few of you shot up to try it out.

Address for GPS is 43985 S. 70 Rd, Belmont, OH It's right off I-70 about 30 miles East of Cambridge or 15 West of Wheeling.
