. . . 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.
The Official NRA A-23/5. If you can't get them locally, you can get them here:
American Target Company, Denver, Colorado
E-mail: [email protected]
Phone: 303-733-0433.
Same place we get the USBR targets.
Web Site: http://www.americantargetcompany.com/
Click on "Small Bore Rifle" button on the left side of the home page.
Scroll down to the 7th pair of targets, the A 23/5 is on the left.
The "HOW TO SCORE" Graphic:
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.

Here is a link to the NRA site for ordering a clear plastic scoring aid. It helps when you have two or more shots cutting into each other, over a scoring ring.
When you get to that page: Click on "Scoring Aids" in the second column.

RULES for the Peep & Globe Iron Sight 50 yd. Match;
Rules are the same as the "scope sight" Vintage Smallbore Class. But: With receiver peep and globe front sights - No optical glass in sights.
Go here for a list of the Vintage Smallbore Class rules:
Here is the list of special rules for the PEEP & GLOBE SIGHT Class.
1. All rifles will be shot at 50 yards with "Iron Sights" only. This includes, but is not limited to, factory match sights like Anschutz, Walther, Suhl, etc.

2. 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.

3. Shooters may use any type or color of front sight insert (clear, amber, etc.) and aftermarket eyepieces or discs on their rear sight (Merit, Hadley, Gehmann, etc.) as long as the inserts or discs do not offer any optical magnification.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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 June 1 and ends June 30, 2009.
Please enter your score and equipment information at the bottom of this thread, in this format:
199-13x John Witham. Whitehorse, Yukon (Greyjay)
BSA Model 12/15. BSA No. 8 rear tang. Parker Hale 2 front. Eley Yellow Box
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
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)
Post your scores in the September thread, here:
Owen Bundy (Metaleer) has take over the responsibility of preparing the score bulletins each month for the 50 Yard Iron Sight Matches. That leaves me free to dream up another "On Line Match". Loolks like it is going to be a special match for the "High Dollar" Scope Sight matdh for Facory sporters like the Aschutz, Cooper and Sako.

Have fun at the range:

Distance measurments.

For a 50 yard shoot, how do you measure the 50Y? Is it from the front of the bench? I don't have a local range and am setting up one in a local gravel pit...
