    Welcome to the Centerfire Match for the 4th quarter of 2012! This match is open to any centerfire rifle. This match is meant to be challenging and educational, but most of all FUN. Hopefully it will get you out to the range and shooting your rifle. If you have one handy, make sure an bring a friend too.


    ->Iron sights and non-magnified optics and red dots. Shot at 25yds.
    ->Scopes and other magnified sighting devices. Shot at 100yds.


    There are Two Rifle Classes in the magnified division (only one for the non-magnified division):
    ->Target Rifles (purpose-built target rifles, modified rifles, rests, heavy rifles (over 10lbs), high magnification optics- over 10x may be used).
    ->Sporting Rifles (Includes All Non-Target Class Autoloaders, Bolt Actions, Single Shots, Pumps, & Lever Rifles). Rests/sandbags/bipods are not permitted in this class, but shooting sticks (either the crossed or walking stick variety) are allowed. Use of a sling is encouraged. Shoots may be taken from any position. Rests/Sandbags/bipods are not permitted in this class.


    25 Yd. (Irons) Target: See image attached below. Scale to "fit to page" on standard 8.5x11in. paper. The objective is to fire one shot at each of the 10 targets (including the bullseye target at top left). The target is scored as indicated and any shot that touches both the positive and negative point values is scored as the difference (e.g.: if a shot hits both the 10pt value and -7 point value, it would be scored as a 3). 25 bonus points are awarded for not impacting any of the "friendlies", for a maximum available score of 125pts. EDIT: It should be noted that the black areas on the "unfriendly targets" are not negative point values, though all areas on the "friendly targets" (ones in front) result in a negative value.

    100 Yd. (Optics) Target: Same as above.


    When you are satisfied you've done your best post/attach (or shoot me a PM) a photo or scan of your target with as much of the following information as possible: Forum name (or name you want posted in the results), Rifle, make, model, vintage (if known), Sights/Optics (with magnification if applicable), Ammo (or load, if you care to divulge your secret recipe), Position, Distance, Conditions (in/outdoors, wind, temperature...). Multiple submissions are allowed (in same or different class with same or different rifles).

    Self-scoring is encouraged and appreciated. All submissions due before the beginning of next year.

    :)

    As much as I hate to do it I'm going to discontinue the centerfire match for an indefinite period of time. We'll probably start back, but not until ammunition (and reloading component) availability increases and I get a little more time to attend to it. OTOH the RF match will continue much the way that it has for the past 5yrs or so...see my sig. line for details.

    :)
