    http://sportingriflematch.com/


    NRA Whittington Center Sporting Rifle Match


    OVERVIEW

    The "Sporting Rifle Match" at the NRA Whittington Center is designed to test a rifleman's skills shooting small targets from approximately 175 to 700 yards in the natural terrain, with what he can carry throughout the course.

    Typical equipment used includes: a rifle capable of 1 MOA accuracy; rifle optics allowing precise hold-over for small targets from 175 - 700 yards; binoculars to spot for other shooters; and a backpack to carry water, ammunition, and a couple power bars.

    The typical format is 10 stages over a 2 mile distance. Each stage typically has 6 targets to be engaged with only one shot each. Score for the match is total number of hits.

    The shooters' meeting is at 7:30AM. Do not be late.

    This monthly match is an excellent opportunity to test your precision/sniper rig, or prepare for the ITRC.

    Sorry I missed the May match. This looks like a lot of fun. I was "ready" (as I'll ever be) to go, but I let the weather talk me out of it.

    PURPOSE
    The "Sporting Rifle Match" at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton NM is designed to test a rifleman's skills shooting small targets from approximately 175 to 700 yards in the natural terrain, with what he can carry throughout the course. (The "Sporting Rifle Match" has nothing to do with NRA High Power "Sporting Rifle" class.)

    The match format is 10 stages spread over a 2 mile distance. Each stage has 6 targets at varying distances to be engaged with only one shot each. Target distances are known to the shooter. Shooters must complete each stage's target engagements within 3 minutes. No "sighter shots" allowed. Score is total number of hits out of 60 possible. No one has shot a perfect score, yet.
    This match has been held monthly since mid-2004 (except Oct-Dec/Jan which is hunting season at the NRAWC).

    It was cold..
