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)

Cowan front rest, Protektor bags
Sunny, 48 degrees, variable winds 1-4mph
49-2x,50-4x, 50-5x, 50-5x

I attribute the first bull to canting the rifle transitioning from my sighter bull. I'll have to pay more attention to that.

Florida, December 4, 2017

Indian River Range, Sebastian, FL, November 27, 2017

Vintage Class

Martini 12/15 with factory sights
Harris Bi-Pod and Protextor rear bag
Light wind, 7-12 mph. 75 degrees and cloudy

CMP Eley bulk ammo
White center A23/5 target.
50-5x, 50-1x, 50-4x, 49-2x = 199-12x

Comments: I continue to struggled today. Still Experimenting with the way I am holding the rifle and with how much pressure. Second time I have shot this off of a bi-pod as I just had a stud installed to attach it to. The legs need to be extended more with this rifle due to the lever to open the action. Might be picking up a bit of vibration ? Early groups were pretty open. But that might be ammo I left in the shed over the summer and exposed to lots of heat. SK Rifle Match. Usually pretty good, throwing shotgun patterns last time and today. Switched to the Eley. Still a work in progress.

CZ Lux, factory open sights.
Sand bag with a rear bag on top of it up front.
Nothing but my hand under the stock at the rear.
The SK Rifle Match I need to shoot up as it got too hot over the summer.
White center A23/5 targets.
44-0x, 48-1x, 49-1x & 48-2x=189-4x
(Had a sight adjustment after the first bull. The rear sight looks very fuzzy with old eyes.

Martini 12/15, factory sights
Cabelas front rest, Protextor rear bag.
SK Rifle Match
light winds
White center A23/5 target
50-5x, 50-4x, 50-2x & 50-1x=200-12x
50-4x, 50-5x, 50-3x & 50-3x=200-15x

Last time around I was using the Bi-Pod as I had a stud installed, but the flyers made me think the legs further extended due to the need for the rifle's under lever might have allowed more vibrations. Maybe. The use of the rest did seem better today, but on two other sets of targets I had vertical flyers which I am attributing to more or less velocity with those rounds. Again, these were stored in a hot shed over the summer. Next time around I will have to dig out some ammo in an unopened case stored inside the house. Working at narrowing it down. And I recognize my ability to resolve the target in relation to the sights may be degrading as I get older.

199/14X Tom Billeter, Tucson (Keeley)
FWB 2600, Factory rear, 22mm Centra front, adjustable aperture, SK+
Cowan front, Protektor
49/3, 50/2,50/4,50/5 = 199/14X

These 'ol eyes get tired too quick. I had a Walther along but it was stringing shots cause of barrel contact with the fore end I think. I fixed that when I got home and will try again next week.

Good shootn Don. Yep, It did turn into a good day.

200-11x (Vintage) Bill Parkhurst. Sheffield, AL (AQBill)
Anschütz Model 1416D HB, Redfield rear and front, CCI SV
Cowan Front. Protektor bunny ear rear bag.
Sunny, 42F, 0-5 mph southerly breeze.
50-4x, 50-4x, 50-2x, 50-1x

Pretty good conditions for this time of year. Since this was shot in a club match, I had to use cheap ammo which, nevertheless, shot pretty well in the Anschütz. My Sako P94S Varmint did not fare so well in the USBR sporter match - it demonstrably does not like CCI SV at these cooler temperatures.

Comments: I had started out to shoot the 50 yard offhand and was wobbling around badly and getting shotgun patterns on and outside the scoring rings, so I went back to the bench to make myself feel better for the Christmas season. Probably the last rifle shooting until after the first of the year.
