    The match director will send the scores into the NRA, and the NRA will send you a classification card once you have enough rounds to earn your classification.

    If Memphis runs the Mid-range matches as 3x600s (three, 20 round matches in a day), you'll have enough rounds for record at the end of your second time out to get classified.

    you will need to be an NRA member. the match director will need your NRA member number to submit your scores.

    i agree with the flycaster post above re: not needing a high end jacket just for prone

    Sweet. I'll have to go look for the classification break down.

    I'm not looking to do any good my first several times out, like the first 10 times out. I'm mainly looking to gain experience, learn about reading conditions out to that distance and just plain having fun shooting. I've shot plenty of rounds out to 200 yards and plenty of deer and hogs from 5-200yds, I'm doing this to give me a new challenge and to better my marksmanship. If I do good...great, if I do bad...well, it's better than sitting at home on my 6. I'd take a bad day of shooting over a good day of just about anything else. If I could make a living reloading and shooting I would
