June longrange rimfire match



Log in to see fewer ads
Time again for my longrange rimfire match at my range here in LLoydsville. There is a Fathers Day car show in Maynard on Sunday and I'd like to go to that if possible. Main days will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday June 15th, 16th and 17th. I'll be setting up targets and mowing on Wed and I might be able to get a few thru in the afternoon if the other days aren't workable. I should be ready for shooters starting at 9:00 AM each day.

I'm changing the targets a bit and scoring will be different this time. No penalty targets or Know Your Limits, it'll be all steel with a point value of 1 point each. Nothing extra for smaller targets, hit as many as you can and I expect the scores to be very close. I'll do a reverse count starting from the smallest 197 yard target to break any ties. Should be interesting and lets the shooters get credit for their hits and not whether they hit a smaller higher value target or not.

A donation of $10.00 for each entry and each entry gets a chance for the $25.00 drawings. This will be a 100 round match again since everyone seems to like to be able to sit and get some range time shooting.

Still limit ammo costs to a maximun of $8.00/50, no tuners or fancy benchrest style front or rear rests. Bipods and sandbags are fine and no limits on guns or scopes used.

I've been thinking about having a running metalic sight class that can be shot anytime all year long. Only be 50 rounds and everyone will shoot the same targets all summer long. You can do multiple entries and your highest score will be the one that counts. I haven't quite got the targets figured out yet but am getting close, trying to use targets that are hitable and challenging for both peeps and open sights.

Hope the weather holds out this weekend, the firing line is covered and there are two benches so we can shoot two people at the same time.

I'm planning on shooting my Freedom Arms 22 revolver this month and Chris.... well, you'll have to see it to believe it. Come on out, you can't improve if you don't shoot. Some shooters hesitate to come if it's breezy, you have to learn to shoot in the wind to ever get the win.

Amazing how much I've been learning just by spending time behind the spotting scope for everyone that comes down. Watching the flags and seeing/hearing where their shot goes is easily as good as doing the shooting.

Hope to see you

Freedom Arms 10 silhouette built on the 83 frame. Same frame as the 454 Casull. 5 shot with match chambers. 40moa mount that also includes an assembly to fasten a bipod to that doesn't touch the barrel or action. 16x SWFA scope.

Shoots good but is super picky on how the rear grip is supported. Still experimenting wit rear support, presently using wedges. Bags are too forgiving and get verticle stringing.

I liked the scoring this month. Easy for me to figure out. Hit a target, get a point. Miss a target, no point. When people start shooting a perfect score, you can make it harder.
