Welcome to the Rimfire Match for the months of October/November/December 2013! This match is open to any and every 22 caliber (as well as 17 and 20 caliber) rimfire rifle including the perennial favorite .22LR, as well as the .22Short, .22Long, .22 Mag., .17HM2, .17HMR, .17WSM, and 5mm Rem RF Mag (as well as any oddball rimfires that you might have). 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. There are Two Optics Divisions: ->Iron sights and non-magnified optics and red dots. Shot at 25yds. ->Scopes and other magnified sighting devices. Shot at 50yds. *Note that the distance of irons div. returned to 25yds. There are Two Rifle Classes: ->Target Class: unlimited class primarily dedicated to target rifles but also includes any rifles that do not meet the prerequisites for the sporting division (highly modified rifles, rests, target sights, sub-.20cal. chamberings, high magnification optics- over 10x [in the appropriate division] may be used) ->Sporting Class: limited class for sporting rifles used in "field conditions" (Includes All Non-Target Class Autoloaders, Bolt Actions, Single Shots, Pumps, & Lever Rifles chambered for any rimfire cartridge .20cal./5mm and larger) Both classes can be shot from any position. Rests/Sandbags/bipods are permitted in the Target Class only. Shooting stick(s) are now permitted for both divisions (either crossed or walking stick style). Use of a sling is encouraged. 25 Yd. (Irons) Target: See image attached below (we've shot this one before, but I think it was a good one, so lets give it another go). Scale to "fit to page" on standard 8.5x11in. paper. The objective is to fire as many shots as necessary at the individual "holes" until the edge of the dot has been broken. The target is scored as one point for each shot (up to 5, after which time you can just mark a five for that "hole" and continue), with a 2pt. penalty being assessed for each "sand-trap" hit. Note that, just like golf, the lower the score the better, with the shooter that attains the lowest score being the winner. 50 Yd. (Optics) Target: Same as above.
