    Changes for taking the match up to the 600 yard range.

    #1. If you have not shot on the PWSA 600 yard range *and* received a 600 yard certification card, you cant not shoot this match until you get your card. It is a simple process that can be accomplished on match day. We have 5 slots set aside before the 8:30 match and 10 slots for the 12:00 match to accomplish this.

    #2. We will have 5 target banks from 300-620 yards. When shooting prone you will engage the small target at that distance. When shooting in any position other than prone, you will engage the larger target. Simple as that.

    #3. Because target distances are further and there will be knob twisting involved, time limits will change. For now, plan on 60 and 90 seconds per string.

    #4. When shooting the non-prone portions, which was 30 of the 40 shots, we will change it up also. In the end, you will shoot 15 of the 40 shots from a non-prone position.

    #2, 3 and 4 are subject to change as the match evolves.

    #1 is non-negotiable. If you need the cert (a one time deal) you *must* arrive at the range 45 minutes prior to the published match start time. You have to contact match staff ahead of time to be sure we have slots to get you completed.



    Post #1 in this thread still has all the important info and rules.

    Good times yesterday. Thanks a ton to everyone that made this happen. This was the first time in a few years that we have been able to get back up on the 600.

    We had an awesome set up crew (Daniel, Tim and Dave) that showed up at 7:00 to get things going. We were set up in record time despite every target location being new.

    Everyone stuck around to help tear it all down. Thanks to everyone that made it happen.

    Dont forget, the 600 yard certification process is 100% mandatory for all PWSA members and non-members. It is a one time deal. But.... you must complete it before you can play in this match. Contact me directly for more details.

    The move to 600 definitely has made this a new challenge, very cool match.
    Dude, where's my can?

    Good times yesterday. Several new shooters came out to play in the wind. Lots of switchy conditions made you stay on your toes for every shot.

    Thanks to everyone that came out early to make it happen and those that stayed late to clean it up.

    Please note, if you have not yet been certified to shoot on the 600, you need to contact match staff BEFORE signing up. This ensures we have a board member available to get you signed off. The 600 yard certification is mandatory for everyone, members and non-members and is a 1 time deal.

    Hey I know the conditions were really crappy last weekend and I probably came in last place but will you be posting the scores on Practiscore? :-)

    Fun times yesterday despite the winds and heat. The winds were strong and gusty most all day. Congrats to Eric Z for figuring out the wind puzzle.

    When we wrapped up around 1:30 it was right around 100-102 and the 15-20 MPH winds made it seem like your head was in an oven.

    Changes are coming for this match.

    1. Moving to the 3rd Sunday.
    2. Noon match going away.
    3. 8:30 match starting at 9:30.
    4. Round count bumping up to 56 shots.

    The match will still be very focused on the fundamentals of an average RPS/NRL match. Hopefully having everything set up by 8:00 just like we do now will allow new shooters some time to get used to how things work and verify their dope to be 100% accurate by match start time. With 16 slots avail I expect to wrap up around 1:30-2:00.

    The shooting will still be tough with 1.5-3.5 MOA sized targets.

    If there are open slots left on the day before, people can opt to shoot a second gun. But please contact me before you sign up a second gun. If you sign up for 2 guns right off the bat, I will contact you to find out which one you want to shoot.

    And the August match is in the books. https://practiscore.com/results/html...erall-combined

    The new format worked well. It took a string or two but we think we have settled on 75 seconds (prone) and 100 seconds (positional) for each string of 7 shots.

    Having the targets avail for new shooters to get used to PRS/NRL type shooting for 90 minutes is a huge plus. That makes this a relatively new shooter friendly PRS match. The targets are still small, but thats the challenge.

    And people got to learn some things on how to speed up and be more efficient while engaging targets at different distances. So that was a win.
