Rimfire Silhouette

A Rimfire (also called small bore) Silhouette Match consists of shooting a total of 40 steel silhouette targets, at various distances, while standing using a scoped rimfire rifle.  Typically rifles used are either bolt-action or semi-auto.  It is very helpful to have your rifle sighting info for 40, 60, 77 and 100 meters prior to the match.  Sighting shots are not allowed during the match; however, typically a 30 minute sighting-in period is offered prior to the match.  The match at SLSC is an unofficial match run in accordance with the NRA Rifle Silhouette rules.

Latest Match Report

Sanners Lake Rimfire Silhouette Match
June 10th, 2017

Weather:  Sunny, warm, not too humid...yet. 

Number of competitors:  3

Three shooters showed up on a beautiful late spring day for the second Sanner’s Lake Rimfire Silhouette match of 2017.  It was a tight race for first place that ultimately ended in a tie score of 19 at the finish, but the “reverse animal count” tie-breaker rule gave the victory to Mark S over Jake S by virtue of his higher score on the turkeys.  Dick C made it out to the range as well and turned in a respectable score; no doubt we’ll be seeing him break into the double digits at future matches.  Scores are summarized in the June Match Report 

Thanks to everybody for helping out with setup and teardown, and thanks to Jim D for running the match.  

The next match is on July 8th; grab your rimfire rifle and join the fun!
