Samuel Payne is the only competitor to ever fire a perfect score of 600 in the Rimfire Sporter Match
The CMP National Rimfire Sporter Match offers shooters a recreation oriented competition where they use smallbore sporter rifles (plinking and small game rimfire rifles) commonly owned by almost all gun enthusiasts. This is a unique match where all you need is a rifle and ammo. The Rimfire Sporter course of fire is challenging, new shooters can successfully complete it while experienced shooters find it uniquely challenging. Firing is done at 50 and 25 yards on a target with a 1.78" ten-ring and an 18" outer one-ring. The target is simple enough for a beginner to hit, yet challenging enough that only one competitor in the history of the match has ever fired a perfect 600x600 score. See below for More Info and our upcoming matches. Additional info can be found on the in this CMP Rimfire Sporter Rifle Guide and on the CMP Sporter Rifle website.
Sanner’s Lake CMP Rimfire Sporter Match Report
11 July 2021
The sun was high and the dew point was low making for a very nice day for July in Southern Maryland and three shooters took the opportunity to launch lead at the July rimfire sporter match at Sanner’s Lake. Jake Swierczek started off with a string of personal bests and was on his way to a record-setting performance but a few dropped nines during standing slow fire saw his hopes quickly vanish in a cloud of lead dust. Standing slow fire has a way of doing that. Still good enough for first place, however! Meanwhile Pat Farrar and Tom Reider put together a set of decent scores to come in second and third place, respectively. See all the scores and details below. Next match is on 14 August, see you there!
